Conditioning:

Last night:  60 minutes on bike, resistance level 6 @ 70+ rpm (tired as hell), heart rate 100+

Delts & Triceps

Shoulder wasn't too bad, but still very weak.  Walked the fine line between keeping myself honest and not aggravating things further.

Tried some close grip bench press for the first time in forever.  Left shoulder didn't feel great so I bailed after two sets of 8 @ 135.

Damn, you were a big mofo then too. Back looks more chizzled now and I'm guessin' your wheels are several inches bigger too.  Did you compete back then, looks like you could've?

I was 26 years and around 230lbs in that pic.  Legs look small but I think that is a combination of not flexing them and lighting plus they weren't tan because I got my lifetime squat PR of 555 around the time that pic was taken.

Arms were 18.5
Waist was 32
Quads 28
Calves 18

Midsection needed work (as it does now).  I suppose I could have competed but I never had the inclination.

Conditioning

60 minutes on bike @ resistance level 6, maintaining 80+ rpm.  Heart rate 120+


Strong urge to reach for a beer instead of ride the bike tonight.  But I didn't.

 :)

Instead of watching TV tonight I put my earbuds in and listened to my gymn playlist.

So.  Much.  Win.

Have really been slacking on the deads for most of this year, and my last deadlift day was back in June, almost 3 months ago, so I wasn't sure how things were gonna go.  Ended up with a triple @ 425 and pulled 475 for a single with no issues and no straps.

Thanks guys.

I think the combo of zero alcohol during the week and back to normal caloric intake is a win/win.

I felt like a monster today.

But now it's time to kill it for the next 8 months.
