Great stuff, Jim. You're going to cruise past your old PRs. That's a nice feeling.

Go Canada! Good luck!

Thanks Mike!! Meet PR's, the ones that really count, will be set by my 2nd lifts, especially on Bench, which was very so-so at my first meet. It does feel good to have a realistic shot at my 3rd lifts, which will be ball busters but achievable.

Thanks for the Cheer!!

Kinda fluffed my rack command on the 265. Grrrr. I really have to get a handle on this and quick. I reckon if I pretend the bar is some hot chic that I don't wanna let go of, I'll be good to go. It would super suck if I get red lighted at the meet after a big lift for missing that command.

Last rep on the 250 triple was super sloppy and all over the place LOL.

Crew noticed my lats caved in on the 265 paused single, thus creating more work for myself to lock it out. This is good to know. This is a great example of having someone who knows form being there live, as it is almost impossible to see that in a video.

Military Press
95 X5
105 X5
105 X5

Absolutely love doing these in my Romaleos as they make it easier to nail form.

Incline DB Press
75's X6
75's X6
75's X6

Dips
BW X6
BW X7

Overall a really good session. I have now nailed my tightness down consistently for at least the first rep. Issue now is making sure I don't cave as I press it, and of course making sure I obey that stupid rack command!!

Crew Squats Sunday - woooooohoooo!

JIMGYM SQUAT SESSION

Slept in this morning, so I had to squat in the JimGym. No big deal really, as I should be squatting in a rack anyway, since in Vegas I will have to do so. The Crew would all be using the monolift, as they are all in gear. (I am the only raw lifter there).

Did some pretty good work today, despite my lower back not really co-operating. It was pretty tight when I woke up. I used my brand new rumble roller for the first time and endured the pain long enough to loosen it up enough to squat. I might have to pay my physiotherapist a visit before the meet to make sure that stupid facet joint is in place. My lower back felt like a million bucks after the session, so let's hope it stays that way.

I also have some worst case scenario news regarding my eyes. I had to pay the surgeon an emergency visit on Friday. My visual clarity decreased quite a bit last week. My eyes are also sore all the time. After his examination, he told me I have started to develop Cataracts in both eyes. My Birdshot inflammation is also worsening. He cannot treat my inflammation because the steroid shot acts like fertilizer for Cataracts. When the time comes to operate on my eyes, and it will, he will have to choose between the lesser of two evils, as operating on the eyes to remove the Cataracts will cause the Birdshot to worsen by as much as 50%. Leaving the Cataracts will also cause vision loss. Either way, I will lose upwards to 50% of my vision with a chance of complete blindness. I am royally screwed. I am trying my best to absorb and deal with this, but it's proving to be very hard. I just can't come to terms with this and I'd be lying if I said it didn't think about it all the time. It's eating me up emotionally.

I had some difficulty getting my stance just right today.

I'm now going to rest for a couple of days and hold my mock meet Halloween night. I will be using my ramp ups I plan to use at the meet; lifting up to my openers only, practicing commands and wearing my singlet. On Saturday, I will have a loosen up very light session before my massage and haircut appointment, Then I will have 4 complete days of rest before I lift November 8th.

Thanks Ravi - paused work is going well - I just have to make sure I wait for that rack command.

Form on the 410 was not the best I can do, but not too bad considering back was acting up. I also have to get my stance right at the meet. Oh how I wish I would be using a monolift at the meet.

Thanks for the prayers as well. The eyes will not get better, but I can hope for them to stabilize. Any damage caused up to now and in the future is permanent.

No arm twisting here my friend! Never even knew about it. Steve invited me, and I'm not gonna lie, I felt sort of special! I like M&S, don't get me wrong, but as you know I'm growing tired of certain things ! Loving it here, although I'm a noob again
I'm sorry about your eyes too bud! I know that it's not a total shock, but hat sure as hell doesn't make it easier! You know I'm always here for you my friend and I'm praying for you too! Keep focused on your goals, no matter what your a champion to me:flex:
