Pretty much how i got all my first gear, buy a little, trade a little. Ill be down in a few weeks if you want to give any of my gear a try. Dont mind in letting you hit a session in something and see if you like it.

I've had some good sessions lately. I feel like a lot is just coming together. It happens like this for me. Stagnation for a training cycle followed by one or two that just click. 435 to the one board is a PR. The common consensus is that if you can hit a one board with it, you can go to your chest. I don't doubt that in my case. On a side note. I got a text from my wife with a video on it. It was a video of my son starting to crawl. Sometimes I wonder what I'm doing taking this time away from my family. Not only am I missing some important stuff, but I'm being selfish about it. I thought about it really hard on my way home. Is it worth it? The time, pain, frustration... Yes it is. It's going to sound cliche, but time under the bar teaches you a lot. The weight in your hands or on your back is unforgiving, it doesn't care about your problems, it is inanimate. You mean nothing to it. If you are weak, the weight will crush you. If you persevere, you will be strong. My goal is to be a better man than I was yesterday. The resolve you have under he bar is the same resolve you should go about with in your daily life. My wife knows, and, god willing, my son will know of perseverance, and dedication and how it is an absolute must in the world we live in. And I thank them on a daily basis for understanding. To some people this is just lifting some weights, to others, an obsession. For me, it's my sharpening stone.

My work, as far as benching goes, is just figuring out how to finesse the shirt, not really strength. More strength is always good though.

Training Grade: C
Obviously easy weight. It was to a low box. About an inch past parallel. Also a mess load of foam rolling, stretching, and other mobility crap. Not a really fun day, but very helpful. Having not deadlifted last week, my adductors, and abductors are fresh. Pulling every week takes its toll on my squat. I may just pull from the floor every other week.

I prefer to pull every other week. My body gets trashed if I try to pull heavy and squat heavy every week.

I'm gonna go, triples, rack pulls, doubles, rack pulls, singles. I'm going to use the rack pulls like a pseudo deload.

I was going to tell you to check out a place called Las Calinas. It's just north of Palencia. Yah, after pulling wednesda, then squatting on Saturday, I feel constantly tight in my adductors, abductors, and hips.

Today was week 3 in my shirt, going heavy... I'm an absolute idiot for doing so. I should have deloaded, but my ego goaded me on. Given a deload, I more than likely hit 435. That being said, I found something I really need to work on. Triceps strength!!!!! My elbow was killing me during the CGs, so I called it as far as pressing goes. Got a good pump and split. On to deads. I think I will go conventional.
