Good luck with the new program Dave. I certainly did good with RPE and will continue, also-I think Bryce is being coached by the man Mike T, and he is putting up insane lifts. He does a lot of geared lifting too. The guy has a feakishly strong deadlift right now

Way longer off than I had hoped.  Got laid up with a pretty bad infection and fever and then moving dad out of the hospital and back home took a ton of time.  Energy way low tonight but enough is enough so back at it.

Calgary Barbell 16 Week
Week 1 l Day 2

Deads

7 x 290
7 x 290
7 x 290

Not much too these.  Vid on youtube if anybody cares.

Pause Squats


5 x 185
5 x 185
5 x 185

Supposed to be an 8 rpe.  Really wasn't but didn't push it too much tonight.  Lower  back already fatigued and doing some hard core gasping  lol

3 Count Pause Bench

5 x 145
5 x 145
5 x 145

Could've paused these for an hour.  This is what the program called for though so I left it as is.

I cut a couple off of the rows.  Felt good getting it in and feeling pretty good.  I should be back to good for next one!

Good to hear you're on the mend.
Have to say "Thanks" for calling out the program because I'm thinking of running it in Jan. I like how it's set up.

Lots of work done there Dave. Glad you're feeling better. I know what you mean about weights sometimes feeling light. I'm tempted to up the weights sometimes but the writers of the program know better than I do. I think weight and added fatigue would accumulate to cause a problem later so I leave it alone.

Thanks for checking in guys! Eric it seems good so far but a little early to tell. I'm sure by January I'll be able to give a fairly good review.  That being said I can't see it being bad either.
