So Far today:

 

Swiss Bar OHP: 175# 5 x 5  < need to repeat this for a while till I own it

Grippers: Worked up to CoC#3:  R: 5, 5, 4, 5, 5?  L: 5, 3, 5, 5, 5?   < last set, it was kind of questionable whether I fully closed the last rep, my hands were shaking.  

KBSwings: 62#; 36:36; 18 reps/int; 15 intervals  < think these are helping my workouts overall go faster.

Thanks Jason!  I'm hoping with the more moderate weight, and slightly higher volume, my shoulder holds up compared to what I was doing before.  I have also spaced my workouts better so I don't do db ohp right after bench day.

I may have missed it but are you buggered to squat much? The only reason I'm asking is squat really responds to good squat volume and you'd see really good progression I'd think if you upped it substantially. If you're not hurt that is.

My hips get jacked up, unless I back off the weight a lot.  I tried to do partials with #315 a little over a month back, and my left hip completely locked up for a whole weekend.  I do try to fit in an extra day of squatting with 40 or 50 reps, now and then, but I don't always report it here.  I have noticed with all the kb swings lately, that my hips are feeling better - so I think you're right if I got some more volume in, I might see better gains.

Today:

Swiss Bar OHP: 185# 5 x 3  < new weight.  I think my cleans are going to be my limiting factor on this lift.

Grippers:  crappy work - only got my #3 for a couple sets of 3-5.  My hands are a bit sore from KBSwings.  Particular the palm/finger knuckle joint.

Dynamic Bench: 135# & grey bands: 3 sets of 3 grips x 3 reps  < weight light on the bar, since I haven't done these in a while

2" DB Holds (sec): 160#  did 6 sets of ~8-10 sec each hand

50# Blob: got some good lifts, and a few holds for time.  Left hand is getting good at around 5-6 sec per lift

2 Hand 50# Blob Holds (sec): 50, 50, 40  < really like this new exercise.  Seems to give my blob lifts staying power.  Did I mention they burn like a biotch?

Today (so far):

Bench: 135# x 10; 225# x 5; 285# 5, 5, 5, 5, 4  < probably could have got the last 5, but without a spotter I don't take a rep unless I'm 100% sure.  

Squat: 135# x 10; 225# x 5; 285 # 4 x 5
