 Today I was going to go to the gym and do some bonus work....but my IBS decided to make a door to door sales call this morning....I wasn't a happy camper for more reasons than one to say the least.

 :o

 It's eased up throughout the day so hopefully tomorrow I will be good to go!

That's what you get for being lazy and not putting 45s on the bar.  I've been doing this long enough base math 45 is like second nature to me. But when you start mixing in 35s and multiple 25s and nickels I have to stop and think.

So I came in here to offer my congrats.

Instead you get  :slap:

Have a nice day.   :P

When I started doing 531 last year I suddenly had to use the weights that the program told me to use. I had a hell of a time standing at the weight rack trying to add up plate weights in my head everytime I had to add weight.  :o

Good job anyway Merk, even if Flex only offers your that pat on the back, of the head.... LOL

 Thanks! But trust me that lift was nothing more than a kick in the nuts.

lmao, great workout regardless of your mathematicles

 And I had a 91% overall average in high school.....how the school system failed me.

Your lifting > Math Skillz.  Not a bad thing.  Unless you are an accountant.
