I don't know if I'd consider any of my deadlifts heavy.   :-[

I do sumo pulls early in the week at a different rep scheme so they shouldn't impact pulls almost a week later.

I'd think sumo would impact squats more...

Thanks, BB!

7 weeks out from meet
Rough training day but I knew it was going to be.  I've been walking around like a zombie since the time change because 1) I got less than two ours of sleep Sunday night and 2) I've been working a lot of hours trying to make up time from work being closed due to snow last week.  Part two is going to take me about two weeks to make up that time so that's not going to get any better soon.  I did get a full night's sleep last night, but still woke up tired this morning.  I hate time changes!!!

7 weeks out from meet

Paused Bench Press - 5 reps per set, @9, rep drop**
   45 x 2 x 10
   95 x 5
   135 x 3
   165 x 2
   195 x 1
   225 x 1
   205 x 5 @7
   220 x 5 @8
   235 x 4 @9.5  >:( I wanted this PR
   235 x 3 @9.5 Thought I'd try again.  Since I failed again I decided to do rep drop instead of load drop until I can only get 2 reps
   235 x 2 @9 done.

**This was my first time ever doing rep drops even though I did them a little bit different from how they are supposed to be done.  It was nice to get heavier weight in my hands though.

Box Squat
   45 x 2 x 10
   135 x 5
   185 x 5
   225 x 3
   250 x 3
   275 x 3
   300 x 3 x 3


Out of time.  GHRs will have to wait 'til after Saturday's deadlift session.

What's the @9 and such mean after your reps?

My rating of how hard I felt the set was.  An @9 would typically mean I had another rep in me.  9.5 would be a maybe one more rep.  The tech term is RPE or Rate of Perceived Exertion.

Not sure yet.  I'll get a better handle on those starting next week when I drop my reps down to 3s.  I typically like to open with a 3RM and move on from there.  My goals are usually based off of those 3RMs too that the'll give me my goals.  2nd lifts are usually a little more than the halfway point between the two.  I hoping to get 450/275/400 by the end.

Best of luck.
