    Comp Deadlift
    200 x2
    220 x1
    240 x2 @9 (Wanted a triple, but felt although I could have go the last rep it would have been a grind and I didnt want to push to an RPE 10. Plus I let the bar get away from me making it harder than it needed to be, not quite used to a deadlift bar. Thought it best to live to fight another day)

    Overall felt pretty tired and lethargic this morning.

    Peak squat is coming along nicely, but bench is just stellar for you right now.

    Yeah its all moving in the right direction... would LOVE a 220 squat at the next comp in 6 weeks

    Bench is always pretty solid... but like you said... no one cares about bench ;)

    Pin, tempo or pause squat?

    My favourite of those is pin squat. So at the moment I have 1 day in the week pin squating, then towards the end of the week I will use the pause squat for back off sets after my heavy single.

    Seen a lot of buzz about tempo squats coming from Mike T and the RTS guys. might give them a whirl after competition.

    Feeling pretty beat up this week. I'll see how I feel over the weekend but might take a deload next week then that will give me a nice 4 weeks to push up to comp.
    By deload I mean basically just reducing the frequency and volume slightly:

    Mon:
    Comp Squat - Daily max no back off sets
    Comp Bench - Daily max no back off sets

    Wednesday:
    Deadlift - 1-3 reps @ 8rpe
    Front Squat - Daily max no bacck off sets
    Comp Bench - Daily max no back off sets

    Friday:
    High Bar Squat - Daily max no back off sets
    Comp Bench - Daily max no back off sets

    I'll also throw in a few light face pulls and or pull owns

    Definitely need a deload week. Just going to drop the volume and frequency off, but keep intensity relatively high

    Thanks.

    Yeah this is the best its felt for a while. depth is bugging me a bit, probably just being overly paranoid.
