Thanks Mike!! Real cool I survived JB's routine for 7 weeks before needing the deload, and a power surge to crush the remaining weeks until maxing would be sweet.

David was able to fix the lower back yesterday in 1 session thankfully. He did say that 2 Facet Joints were out this time. No wonder I could barely pull 135. Up until now, it's only been 1 problematic Facet Joint. It's hard to believe 1 or 2 tiny bones can bring me down and makes the difference of a 135 pull and a 465 pull. My appt. with the sports medicine specialist is not until April, so I will just carry on as normal until then. The X-rays did show some "Disc Narrowing" and Arthritis in the lower back, of which the specialist will give me more details and treatment.
Pretty sore all over today. I don't think i have ever needed a deload more than I do now. Might hit up some deload bench Sunday or Monday and then some seated OHP after that. As JB advised, I will do nothing standing this week until I start week 8 of the program next Saturday with the Crew.
