OK, I will give it some though.

I will be getting up about 6:30-7:00; I have to drop them off at school at 8:30; figure about 30-45 minute drive to the gym from there, depending on traffic.

I don't like training with a full stomach, so...

Back & Chest

Day 1 of my "Mr Mom" vacation week.

Strength was good today, so I figured I'd try to throw around the 120's for a bit.  Wasn't really ready for them, but that's how I roll.  Eeked out three sets of triples before going back to some reasonable weight.  That said form was really good.  They weren't sloppy at all.  Slow and controlled.  Touched them to the outside of my chest at the bottom and touched them to each other at the top.

First time in over 20 years I've used the 120s for this exercise.  :)

Power Saturday

Really good deadlift session today.  Lower back was not quite recovered from squats on Tuesday, but it didn't seem to hold me back much, if at all.

They felt heavy as fuck; barely squeezed out 5 on the first set.  No idea how I did 4 more sets of 5.

All new DBs from 105 - 120 today.  It was like Christmas at the gym.

Looks like they tore down the wall to the woman's only section and took out all the equipment too.

If they put some decent stuffs in there I will be happy.

But I have a feeling it will either be a "PT Only" section or they will fill it with TRX shit.

They removed that machine.  One of the dozen of so casualties so we could have a TRX jungle gym contraption that no one ever uses.
