Solid day... Hit some unexpected numbers. I normally use chain for my connectors when squatting with chain, meaning I use a small chain and attach everything to it. I decided to buy rock climbing runners and try them out. The weigh literally nothing and can support a small car. BTW, they work GREAT! and a pair is just $24. I added 2 big and 2 med chains to each runner and the total ended up weighing 113lbs. Shoulder also felt great so I pushed it a bit. The last double was a push press instead of a strict press but no pain.

I'm going to pick up shorter runners for my floor presses and it's time to start using chalk. My sweaty ass is beginning to have grip issues.

Since I'm only allowing myself 1hr in the gym (or thereabouts),I'm going to start pushing the pace in terms of not giving myself more than 1min30sec rest for assisting lifts. I'd like to put 1 more lift in each training session but so I have to speed things up a bit since I don't really have more time. I allow myself 2hours and it takes me around an hour in commute time.

I'll also begin adding a 2nd conditioning day in soon. Time to pick it up a bit. I'm thinking sled pushes after squats on Tues.

Another solid day. I shortened it though because I'll train again tomorrow and back to back takes a toll on me since I pulled today and I'll be squatting tomorrow. Deads went well. Bar moved smooth and fast. Ate a cheat meal before training and it made a difference.

Been under the weather so today's training was a kick to the dick. I still did what needed to be done so I'm happy. Weight is sitting around 253. Some mornings I'm at 251. So, I'm going to keep conditioning to 1x week because I don't want to drop below 250.

Weight is now at 250. So, only 1 day of conditioning. No need to add another. Diet is tighter. I'm only allowing myself 2 bad meals a week out of the 42 meals. Goal is to be back in the 5's for squat and pulls before the end of the year. That will have me back at 2x bodyweight (at this new much lower bodyweight) and that would make me happy.

Can't complain... In fact, my training is going well. I'm having a blast since my gym added chain so now I have 4 big sets (currently using 3 on each side). Speed work went well today. Took 50s -1m of rest. Back felt good. Cut my workout short b/c traffic was a beotch and I have to train tomorrow.
