The Iron manages to show me how strong I am or how humble I need to be. The iron does not yell, but it always demands respect. The iron is not a disciplinarian, but when disrespected, I feel it for a long time. The iron does not love or hate, but we definitely share a strong bond. And no matter how far I stay away or for how long, the iron is there, waiting to be lifted.

I sure appreciate all you guys hoping and praying for my eyesight. That's what it's going to take really, as the medical options are pretty slim. My family and I are quite concerned about the drugs which might be prescribed to me. Granted, I do not know anything about them yet, and we will have to wait until it's discussed with the Doc. I just hope I am not left with a choice of saving my vision by way of becoming a sitting duck for disease with a suppressed immune system. With that said, this has been the way this nasty Birdshot has been going for awhile now, in a sense. If I get treatment for one issue, it causes another issue, which can be a lot worse than the original issue. It seems I will always have to choose between 2 evils, and hope I choose the lesser of the two. Clear as mud right?

@Ravi - we were actually just talkking about you at dinner tonight. I was teaching my daughter some geography and told her I know a lifter in India. She now knows where India is! Pretty cool to know someone who is so far away from here.

@ Swede - same goes. My daughter knows where Sweden is!

@Ram - prayer power you can never have enough.

@ Steve - me too, with some anxiety mixed in. There will be tough decisions to be made.

@Ben - It just might prove to make the difference yet. We'll find out soon. I'm definitely in cut mode. Fat is a great energy source tho. We all have to cut sometime it seems.

@Moe - yep, gotta rep out 410 on Sunday. It's crazy!

JB'S OLD SCHOOL SEMESTER 8 DAY 1 BENCH ME

I think I have figured out my issue. After I unrack weights like these, I am thinking too much about the weight, saying to myself, "Fuck, this is heavy!" I did this with squat awhile back as well. I gotta just unrack, get set, and shut up and lift. Just gotta train the old brain.

I also got a bit pissed after that last set. It was supposed to be 315. The guys all told me 315 was loaded, when in fact it converts out to 310. This may not seem like much to them, but it is to me. (Don't worry - I didn't show I was a tad cheesed) I simply have to make sure from now on that I convert JB's prescibed numbers before I leave, just in case we are using metric plates. It's my responsibility to make sure the correct weight is loaded. Today, I neglected to convert my #'s and relied on them. I'm not good at converting on the fly, and neither are they obviously. Conversely, the second last set was supposed to be 305 2 board, but it converted out to 310. I ended up doing the same weight for both my last 2 sets. This is how I noticed the error on the last set, thinking, hey, that is what wa sloaded last time.

To sum up, I did more than I thought on the second last set, and less than I thought on the last set.

At any rate, they are both PR's. Previously it was 305 X1, just last week. Now it's 310 X2.

The last set was sort of 3 reps. After I stuck just slightly above the board, I then lowered it, bounced off the board slightly, and then hit the rep. I then hit 2 more. The spotter said he never assisted at all, even when I missed. Wow. I can't believe I just did that!

Last, but not least, I took a vid of my 90 Mustang 7-Up Convertible. I am the original owner. However, I sold the car to my brother 19 years ago, in order to buy a house when Licia and I got married. I sold it to him with no conditions that he keep it pristine, but he did anyway. The car has never been driven in rain, snow, or even thru a puddle. The engine and undercarriage - you could eat off of them. The car is a 23 year old brand new car. It is 100% the way it rolled off of the dealer lot. Speaking of which, it wa slove at first sight to say the least. I was driving by the dealer that day in the Spring of 1990, and out of the corner of my eye saw the car, saying to myself "WTF is that?" Those colors were not available for Mustang that year. I know because I was an expert on these cars back then, being the Vice Prez of the Mustang Club. The car was "sold" per se, but to the manager's wife. I got a phone call the next day from them, advising me that the car was now for sale, as the managers wife did not like it. They offered it to me only, knowing that I would look after it. He saw the car the other day, after all these years, and aalmost shit his pants at how well it was looked after.

I was also to find out soon after buying it about the origin of these cars. Ford only built 150 of them for Canada. There is about 4000 built for the USA. The Canadian cars are different tho - namely mechanically. I also have all the documents to prove it. They were built for the 1990 NCAA Basket ball Tourney, to be given away by 7-Up/Pepsi Bottling Company. The deal fell thru at the last minute for some unknown reason, and Ford was left with them to sell off. They couldn't mention they were 7-Up Cars. They were also built right smack in the 25th Anniversary of the Mustang (1965 Stangs are the official first year of the Mustang)

My brother also has about $5000 worth of spare Ford genuine parts for this car. He had the smarts to raid the dealers before they became obsolete. He even has a complete exhaust system - any part that could potentially wear out he has. What a guy.

At any rate, the car is my first love and I will never part with it, no matter what happens to my eyes.

Great session and a very good point about what to think when setting-up. Your conscious mind can hold one thought at a time. Make sure that is a good one. Before I approach a heavy set I get angry, psyched up but as I am under the bar, I am thinking about technical things. I am repeating cues in my head to make sure I execute properly. That way there is no room for "crap this is heavy"

Great work Jim.

strong bench work Jim! Things are going to come together nicely. I think we need to keep hammering the 2/3boards after we do a few sets of doubles from the chest. Finish this thing up strong!

Also I didnt know you were a foxbody guy. I have always loved those cars. Best friend had a 93 lx 5.0 that was white, beautiful car.

Thanks jay!! I would rather have other super powers anyway!! I am already dying to go for a spin, but that is still 4 months away. It is never driven before the street cleaners have finished cleaning the roads in the Spring.

That is some great insight Al. Thanks for that and I will for sure start employing that this morning for squats. I know what I'll do - get really mad a JB for making me squat 410 for reps!! That Bastard!! Grrrr

Thanks JB!! Indeed, I think we are onto a great plan that will work for me on bench. I just didn't have a good groove on that 3 board first rep. Now that i have done it, I have confidence I can do it. Getting under these heavy weights is just what I needed.

Yep, I am a Foxbody guy. I grew up with them in my "formative" car years. My brother is a car nut/restorer/mechanic and also loves these cars. They were popular for a reason - bang for the buck - which also left many buyers with enough coin left for further custom upgrades.

I also had a chance to buy a mint 1984 20th anniversary convertible a few years back, but did not have the money nor a garage to put it. Besides, I was always hoping to get this one back. I also wouldn't mind one of those SVO's.

I also liked the 93's. Does he still own it? I didn't really like the 94's much as they were to round looking. I much prefer the boxier muscle look.
