that’s deep (ish)

I love training on Fridays….

I don’t know how that warrants a full post, but it does.   I have been like “I feel great.  I love gym on Friday. Wow, I feel pumped. blah blah blah .” So…. either I am having a bit of a moment…. or there’s something to this Friday thing. It’s happened before, so I am going with the latter.

 

Miss me yet?

It’s been a few weeks since I have written.  It’s weird;  I enjoy it, and yet when I stopped for a bit (some business travel had me busy), it was not something I craved to get back to.  I was worried that the same may happen to the gym. That I might have lost the love for it.

As it happens, I didn’t.  Friday was tough:  struggled with everything.   Saturday was better. And today, while not a heavy weight day, felt like old times.  Back in the saddle. Add whatever euphemism here.  I really missed it.  And it’s so good to be back.

Testing day

We tested squats and deads today.  Did squat testing Saturday too, but we shall not discuss it.

Anyway: Jerimiah let me try his knee sleeves.  And it felt really good.  155# squat, but here’s the good part:  TO DEPTH!!!  Needless to say: I just bought a pair.

And deadlift:  185#.

Add that up to Bench from a week ago, and we are at 450#.  52# off his BAM (bare-ass-minimum) for the July 9th meet.  You’ll notice I switched from we/our to HIS on that one.  I think he has a bit of over optimism there.  Anyway…. it’s closer than I thought I’d be by now, so… maybe the truth is somewhere in the middle, as usual.

Testing again Wednesday, and then I travel and am gymless for 2 weeks!
