Started happening a few months ago. Starting to worry it's more than cramps. Only happens on squats.

can you feel your muscles cramping under the skin? I brought it up to my GP once and he was like "I dunno, but I wouldn't worry about it." ::)

Pretty much.  As soon as I pull the lever on my belt it relaxes.  It'll probably be sore tomorrow.  Maybe I should start doing more ab work.  Water was good today.  I drank so much at work I barely made it home for the 50 minute commute.

Pickle juice may be an old wive's tale for my shoulder and back cramps, but for whatever reason it helps. Abs are a whole different thing, they only happen as a result of a lift that involves squeezing my diaghpram where the other cramps can be from reaching for something on the floor.

Great job Ron. Good to see you're still kicking ass here.
Thanks guys.  It's been tough, but I'm giving it a decent shot.  I feel like I've been spinning my wheels since my August meet.  No real progress but its more a consistency problem than a programming problem.

Busy day today.  I feel like my squat may be coming back to me.

   345 x 3 - 10lb rep PR
   315 x 3
   NOTES:  345 set had me seeing stars from the first rep to the last.

Highbar Squat - sleeves
   45 x 10
   135 x 10

   185 x 10
   205 x 10 - 20lb rep PR
   225 x 10 - 40lb rep PR
   NOTES:  I usually just do these for pump and recovery.  I decided to push them a little today.  Tough for me considering what came before them.

Bench day tomorrow.  I hope it goes better than the last one did.  I need to get my ass in bed on time.
