Candito week 4 heavy weight acclimation

squats:
warm up....
working sets
485x2x3
495x3
(supposed to be 485x3/490x3/495x3..can't do 490 though...partner said he's getting some 2.5's, has yet to happen)

DL's
135x2x5
225x2x3
315x3
405x5
465x6
495x6

done

f'n belt clasp broke on my lever, it's part of the flat part that is against the belt, now the belt doesn't lock in place, I was able to use it, but it makes me nervous bc if I touch the lever it will pop open...  :-\   I may invest in a inzer forever, Lifting large is a great company but the actual lever on their belt is shit...it's mold injected and breaks easily, I've already broke 2 of these levers.  last time, I had a custom piece done for the upper portion out of solid aluminum, unfortunately my metal guy , and former neighbor, passed away from cancer.

Not even close to the weight you are pushing but I love my Inzer lever belt. Seems fairly solid.

BTW In Sept I'm going to be in Florida at our facility there. Catching a late flight back home on 9/15. Be kind of cool to grab a beer together in the afternoon if you don't have plans.

that would be great, I guess you're flying out of MCO (Orlando?) if so, lets definitely make it happen.

Yeah, lot easier to fly into MCO and drive over to Melbourne/Palm Bay than trying to fly into Melbourne.
Fly in on the 12th, spend the 13th and 14th at our facility (outside auditors coming in) and fly out on Friday the 15th at 8:15pm. Looked at a lot of flights but they had crazy long layovers and were a couple hundred more expensive. So grabbed the non-stop in the evening. Actually had me coming in about the same time as the flight that would have left at 1pm  :o

Melbourne/palm bay is a quick drive, you made the right choice.  If you feel like lifting Friday, let me know, we can hit my gym or let me know when your in O-town and we'll grab a beer near the airport.

Man, I hope the shoulder is okay. It sucks trying to rehab them.

Just pull the trigger on an Inzer already  ::)
