Nice job on the 305. I knew it was just a matter of time. Onward and upward now.

That is the plan.   :)

Thanks man.


the roll of shame.

That's the roll of pride, means you tried to lift something heavy

Just something I like to do on exercises that lend themselves to it.

Squaterday

Awesome day in the squat rack.  Everything felt good, so I made the best of it.  Got a new unbelted PR of 475, and cranked out a solid ATG paused single at 495.

There is no question in my mind I have a 515 squat in me right now, maybe even 525.  I just need to nut up and do it.

Good session this morning.  Best bench day in a long while.  No new ground; just building the foundation for a 3 plate bench in a few weeks.

Elbow/forearm was still squawking, but it didn't hold me back.

Had a very productive deadlift session today, and got back to some semi-respectable pulls after a dismal session last week.

Squeaked out a single at 545 and pulled my heaviest triple at 500; yes I actually walked over to the weight tree and threw 5 lbs on to get a bogus PR.  Sue me.    :P

Got tot he gym late so all I had time for was some calf raises and GTFO.
