    Pause deadlifts are like pulling your soul through a sieve when you have accumulated back fatigue. Good work.

    Yes, exactly. Thanks.

    BTW, OpenBarbell v3 is coming out May 30 at 8pm EST, in case you didn't know. I might get one. I crunched my v1 a little under my deadlift jack.

    Yay! I really want this objective measurement of performance. Being able to correlate rep speed with current strength would be a huge information gain and optimization for me.

    It's actually just the presale that starts on May 30... I guess they'll still have to make and ship them.

    One more rep than last week. Do density blocks work?

    Mark told me about a meet in Morgantown, WV in mid-August. Considering signing up. 4.5-5 hour drive, but now that my bench is coming back up to speed I need to get something on the calendar and get some more meet experience.

    Ice cream sandwiches, samosas and all kinds of other good stuff helping the bulk.

    Sleep has been over 8 hrs last couple of nights/days. Good. Also only had one beer yesterday.

    Great day. Exceeded my target by 5 lbs and still undershot the top set RPE by .5. Depth looked a little shallower than usual. Still below parallel, but perhaps too close for USAPL.

    This week is a deload, so there won't be any more squats.

    This hip/glute thing is a bit better after some time off. I've been taking ibuprofen somewhat regularly in 600mg doses for the last couple of days. I didn't take any today because it was feeling mostly better and I r dum. I should probably skip good mornings this week, as that seems like it would aggravate the condition. I did a bunch of hip stretches/rolling yesterday and things felt better after that.

    Sorry. Forum weirdness. Great work regardless.

    Based on that video evidence alone I doubt you'd get any whites in USAPL...vids can of course be deceiving but that's my two pennys.

    Only one Beer?

    Shame on you.

    I apologize if you've already answered this a million times; I've not been keeping up with logs until recently... which heart rate monitor do you use for TRAC? Or do you use one at all? I have a fitbit w/a HR monitor, but IDK if wrist monitors are sufficient. I've been considering buying the monthly subscription and using it for informational purposes. How are you liking it?

    I was actually just thinking about asking about your meet schedule last night while scrolling through IG and my wife asked me if I had signed up for any meets.
