Thanks Shawn. 😊  Squats and bench are both feeling good these days so thatís a win.

Yeah Iím looking forward to the Ed Coan session.  Hopefully I can pick up some good tips.

And it's free.  That can't be beat.  The barbell medicine guys are coming to Toronto for a seminar in August that I was going to look into going to until I found out they charge at least 500.00 to get in.  No thanks lol I'll catch them on youtube ;D

Yeah it was the same when the Barbell Medicine guys came here to Alan's gym.    They were charging somewhere around $400-500.  I have a friend who went and he said it was worth it, but for me there was no chance of that.  I think if I would have even suggested that sort of "investment" my wife would have had me sleeping in the back yard for a month. :D

Good workout today.  I had a bad bout of food poisoning last night so I wasn't sure how today's workout would go.  I wanted to go to the SuperTraining seminar with Ed Coan and Stan Efferding, though, so I had to get out to my gym early (~5:45am).  Bench felt suprisingly strong.  I was supposed to work up to 2 singles at 280, but I was feeling so good after the first one I decided to go for a new PR at 315.  I hit it so that was very cool.

My block pulls went good as well.  I did hook grip on all my sets from 350 up and they all felt good.

After lifting I went to the seminar and it was awesome.  I'm glad I went.  There was good info from Mark Bell, Jesse Burdick, Stan Efferding, and Ed Coan.  It was packed and the line was long to get in but it was definitely worth it.

Hope you go Sunday and learn a lot. I will be asking for you to share the knowledge next week when we lift at Untamed

I did go Andy.  I'll have to tell you about it at Untamed.  I'll be in Tuesday night (I won't be able to make it down tomrrow).  I'm looking forward to another good week of lifting there.

Thanks Shawn. :)  Hitting 315 was a looooong time coming but it was nice to put it up.  It felt like I had more in the tank too so that's even better.

The hookgrips really felt good too.  Switching over to them has been a good decision.  My thumbs wind up a little numb by the end of the session but aside from that there is no real pain anymore.
