Nice try on the 465 Greg, some days are just rough on deads and it can be as much a mental game as physical. Know that feeling all too well lately.
Rest up for the meet, coming in fresh for deads makes such a world of difference! Good luck!

Sorry to hear about the hip pain coming back with a vengeance Shawn. :(  It sounds like you're doing a good job of listening to your body and adjusting accordingly.  I'm trying to get better at that myself.  I don't know about you, but 40+ year old recovery sure makes me miss my 30's. :D

I'm curious to see where your bench winds up.  Bacon's Bench Program seems to be real solid.
Thanks Greg, itís disappointing but the options are give up or change my focus. Iím no quitter anyway. Ya the body doesnít bounce back like it used to but we would be much worse off if we didnít train.
Bench is primary focus and think I can take this to 315 by the end of the year.
Man that really sucks about the hip. Hope the reduced volume helps things heal for you Shawn. Still lots of time before SS to get things going. Your bench should be great by then though.
Thanks Rich, pissed of course, but hey, Iím still well off and healthy and am blessed that I can still train. All about perspective right now and focusing on bench can give me something to drive for. Adding more size right now is appealing to me as well, so there ya go!

if I miss a day .....

Like yesterday when I locked my wallet in a rental car  :o

Day 2

OHP's

3 sets DB Curls

Went to orthopedist for the knee/X-Rays, nothing torn, just bruising on the bone. Said I can squat light but I'll skip to week 2 and deadlift tomorrow as that should be easier on the knee, still hurts like fuk
