Progress Is Good after 10 Weeks of 75/85% Volume Template

75/85% Volume template is pretty good considering I am don’t really do warm ups and I only lift twice a week.

This is cycle 1, week 1:

2019-08-23 FRI 531 75% C1W1D1

Bench 42.5KG 5 reps X 6 sets
Back Squat 57.5 5 reps x 5 sets

2019-08-26 MON 531 75% C1W1D2

Rack Pull 81.5 5 reps X 6 sets
Press 32.5 5 reps X 5 sets

This is middle of cycle 2 after a long break (illness and not lifting related hand injury):
