Thanks guys. Yeah I tripled 545 recently and hit 505 or so for 5, 500 is like speed work on a good day if I'm fresh.

Stepping on the platform gives me so much more energy too, it's crazy. I love it.

I just need my squats to start moving that fast with that much weight and I'll be happy.

Thanks man. Was very happy. Could have hit a little more if I would have planned attempts up to it a little smarter, but at that point I was fried. Haha. Probably gona deload the rest of the week, I was supposed to this week but I can't turn down a good deadlift session... oh well.

Great pullin'!  I hope I never pass out.  I always think about that youtube video of the dude taking dumbbells to the face after a deadlift.

I know I shouldn't laugh at someone else's misfortune,  but that is pure gold.

I've seen it and its funny. I love how it's not even during the lift. I blacked out once on 525 in my teens, at lockout fighting for that last bit w/ knees locked and just dropped the weight and didn't even realize what happened. Haha. Nothing like that though.

After my failed near 3rd rep at 585 coming back down my toes and feet and fingers were numb and tingly and I was seeing spots and got light headed. Thats when I knew to shut it down  :D

took last week off squat. had a fairly successful day last night. warmed up pretty thoroughly, work sets. 350x3,7, 375x4, 385x1 (speed single), 315+60lb chainsx7, 315x3 cool down.

did some accessory crap.

legs are hating me today, but I had a good workout. knee feels good so I think I can go ahead with rep work a few more weeks.

Interesting journal.  I'm in.

Even though my numbers are nowhere near yours, I will say that I always take a knee after deadlifts near my max, or after multiple reps.  I've seen that video too many times.
PRs:
OHP 140 - 8/27/15
BP 245 - 4/7/17
DL 345 - 8/26/15
Squat - ugh
Leg Press 670x2 - 12/10/15

Maybe I've built up a tolerance or I just focus on breathing right but I haven't had much issue either. I don't try to hit anything that is an insane grinder either. 531 is based around hitting all your reps so I try to avoid that.

My quads got WAY more sore tonight. Really bad DOMs now. I love it and hate it at the same time. I know I took some time off but this is rough, especially considering I kept it pretty light. I am going to be focusing on volume for the next few weeks to hopefully heal up my knee and shoulder fully and then get back into 5-3-1 and start focusing on getting where I want to be for the November meet.

Working my bench back up slowly but surely. Been adding 20# at 3 sets of 7 and did 225 last night. About half of what I could previously. One difference is that there were all completely paused reps because thats all the guys I train with do on bench on working sets, which is good and translates to a few more if they were touch and go reps.

Thanks. These sets were relatively easy and no pain still so, thats my goal.

Did some squats last night, nothing insane. Bunch of speed triples, I worked up to around 340/345 and just did more volume via sets. One of the guys we train with pulled a hammy pretty bad deadlifting and it killed the momentum for the night.
