I know it is Im so routine oriented that I take a day or two off and I get pacing like a lion in a cage at the zoo , drives me nuts no matter how much I try to occupy my time in other ways. OCD as fuck and then some

Upper 5x5 main - light and volume work

Upper went well today , kepts the weight down again and upped the volume as things keep healing up.

Good strength today , focus was on , good drive off the chest , i got no complaints.

Held off shrugs n rows again while the lower back n hips are wonky working out at home I dont have access to some things ,, chest supported rows would be the shit during this but i just cant get the angle right on the bench for my body to get any real support, do what ya can not what ya wish for and on we go

Well today was hopeful and depressing as fuck all at the same time. I seem to be healing up a bit , leg and hip feel better today I'm able to move up and down the stairs with no severe cramping and it hasnt given out on me yet so thats all good.

It just runs out of gas so GD fast its ,,, well its depressing. Worked so hard to get this far and it seems I never get anywhere these days. Makes me second guess myself a bit more than I would like to. Meets in September I gota be ready after getting injured last year and blowing my WR attempt , I'm getting to old to say , ill get it next year .. ill get it next year.

Deadz - to 1rm - got a bit farther than Mondays session with just iron on the bar so that made me smile but I ran out of gas so damn fast I dont know if it was even worth goin down to work out.

Ut oh - 310xholy shit imma die - got half way up leg gave out sat back down on the box in some kind of fucked up looking seating good morning positions ,,had no safety chains I was being lazy soooo .. i got my shit together and used the rack to assist me standing up with the SSB balanced on my shoulders ... got up and got it walked in ... we live to fight another day

I hate calling it early before I feel like I got anything done ,, I know thats not the right mentality I know its not going to help me heal but ,, I gota do something ... so

Farmers Walk - started light due to the instability in the left leg but they went ok for walking on some uneven lawn not having FW handles I used my Rail Road Jacks , one is 110 the other is 120 lbs so i just swapped hands every with them on the alternating passes
