    I'm starting a new log in hopes of keeping up with it. I have high hopes of being more active with the SS community online. I just passed the coaching cert, and Rip suggested kicking it on the forum more frequently.

    Right now I'm training for Boss of NorCal at Dan Green's gym in Mountain View CA in late May, Nor Cal Open at Midtown Barbell in in Sacramento in late June, and USAPL Raw Nationals this year in October.

    Monday 4/27/15

    Squat:
    505x1@8
    405x8@8, rep drop for 6, 6

    Bench w/pause:
    5x5x235, these were at 7 or lower RPE

    DL:
    5x4x445

    I was hoping to do my down set at 405 for a good set of ten. I'm guessing that's around 75% of my 1RM right now, but I got gassed and dizzy even though the bar felt light. I'm not conditioned for reps like that right now. Everything else went pretty smoothly.

    Seconded. And glad to have your participation on the boards. What's your height/weight/age if you don't mind sharing?

    Hey, thanks amigos! I'm really excited to be here. I've been studying exercise science and this organization is a breath of fresh air.

    Likewise. How are you doing? Are you still training with Jordan?

    I haven't done front squats in a long time. I'm terrible at them. They're well over 200 lbs under my squat.
