That blows. My hip pain was actually coming from my lower back, daily stretching fixed it. The stretch is like the opposite of slouching, pushing gut way out and making my spine like a c the other way.

Been having issues lately with severe pain in my right hip, usually due to random mundane shit that you wouldn't expect to hurt, like shifting positions while seated, standing up, even sneezing.

Was doing squats today and lifting was fine until I was sitting on a wooden plyo box between sets and when I went to stand up I felt extreme pain in my hip.  Normally it goes away quick but today it lingered.  I bailed on my session and went home and took some Advil before going to work.

Dunno wtf it is but it's weird.  But it hurts like fuck.

Anyway I got up to a measly single at 435 on squats...

This morning I completed Sheiko Int. Medium Prep 1 Wk 2-B as follows:

Deadlift (Up to Knees)  3-135, 3-225, 3-275, 4x3 @ 315

Superset:
Bench Press  3-135, 5-175, 4-201, 4x3 @ 230
4" Block Pulls  3-225, 3-275, 3-315, 4x3 @ 340

SSB Squats (Pause on Box)  3-200, 4x6 @ 230

Bodyweight: 216.4 Pounds (Down 5.8 pounds from 222.2 on 7/9)

Workout Duration: 52:43.47 h:mm:ss (with 1:00 rest between sets)

Great workout today.  I wanted to push it up by a day and head down to Untamed last night but work was too crazy so that didn't happen.  Instead I did my workout as originally scheduled this morning and it felt good.  I got a big time sweat going with the bench/block pull superset.  The weights weren't real heavy on anything but it was enough to let me know I was getting some good work in.

Squats went well last night. BPPV seems to have pretty well passed and I'm hopefully in the clear.

Workers up to 495 for a single. Medium wraps, as it hot in the gym,  and I was already tired.

Last rep, my old Back injury twinged a bit, so I shut it down to avoid any more aggravation. Tonight, I'll be doing Deads.

My BPPV has dissipated enough that I was able to bench last night.  Hit 315 for 4, and then 365 for 2 and 385 x1 with the Maddog Slingshot.  It went easy and smooth, but my head wasn't feeling good, so I shut it down.

Tonight, I'll try to squat and see how that goes.  Just about one Month out from my next Meet.   Not even hopeful that I'll have a shot at Flex's total.  Still going in, with the aim to hit better numbers than I have previously, though.

Birthday bench session in the garage Satruday.

Back in the gym today more bench and some accessory work; seated machine dips with the whole stack.  Also did more volume at lighter weights.

Tryna take some advice from the bacon dude....  :)

Well that's a start :D

Just stay away from 305+ for a while. Stay 300 and below; work on getting stronger with 275-300 range. If you get stronger there your 1rm will rise. Daily volume doesn't need to be a lot. Frequency is more important than volume in the higher %, IMO (for natties).

I'll hit a 365 1rm on Thursday in your honor :)
