Today was good day. Had my shoulders adjusted, and some ART on my piriformis. Spoke with my coach concerning the next step in my squat program, some tweaks to my deadlifts, and got some feedback. Went to the gym, Incline Pin Press: 6@135, 3x6@155 (something new, different feel). Overhead Press: 5@145, 5@75, 3@85, 2@105. Some triceps and back work. Thank God for everything, I really felt good today, it wasn’t easy but I loved every moment. (at World Gym)
Good day today, squats are good although I faltered on what was supposed to be my last set but I repeated and got a second time. Squats: 5@205, 4@220, 3@230, 2@250, 2x1@260 (missed the first try, got it the second time). Thank God, thanks to @belizianintellect for the spot, @bullusapl for making me do 260 again (and the spot), and @powerlifter42. Soundtrack: Enya’s greatest song album.

AM deadlifting, i don’t like it but had to do it today. Deadlifts: 5@135, 5@185, 2x2@225, 8x1@285. Having issues with my left shoulder, and keeping my chest; I think the shoulder is “too” internally rotated with some tightness issues. Worked on getting my hips down. It is a good day, thank God for everything, and I’m looking forward to benching tomorrow. (at World Gym)
Yesterday’s was an okay day, training wise. I got to the gym straight from work, bone tired, and operating on 4 hours of sleep but I still wanted to bench.
3x6@135 (PR in reps and I did it for 3 sets), pretty much went downhill from here. 5@135, 3@135 ( needed a spotter on the last reps). I wanted 5 sets of 6 reps, it didn’t happen, thank God for strength to even train. I know I will get it pretty soon. Lots of rows and abs to finish off.
