    Press
    45x12, 65x12, 85x12, 105x10, 115x10x2, 95x10, 45x10x2

    BW Chins
    8 sets of 5

    C2 Erg
    30/60 x 6 - moderately paced, all between 1:45-1:50

    Then one hour of equipment moving.

    Shoulder wasn't as good as I hoped it'd be - it didn't hurt, but I could feel the slight discomfort at 115, so I chose there to stop, then backed down and did a bit more volume. Got 96 reps in total.

    In encouraging news, I squatted to warm up along with the presses (as I usually do), and today was the first day since Sept 30 that I squatted without left knee pain. The issue isn't completely gone yet; it was present during today's warm-up squatting, but definitely downgraded in category from pain to discomfort. Happy about this progress, I have freakin squat goals to hit!! It's also really nice to be able to go up and down stairs without twinging, which happened for the first time yesterday.

    Thanks guys. Appreciate it.

    Squatting today was good. May have overdone it just a bit in my excitement, but I don't think it caused any problems. Just need to keep going up slow and steady as the knee gets better.

    Squat
    45x5x2, 95x5, 135x5, 185x5, 225x5, 275x5, 315x5x2
    Notes: Fine through 275. First set at 315 was beltless, and I felt a little twinge on the first rep. Didn't feel it again after that, but I couldn't prevent myself from descending in such a way as to guard against it. Thought about going back down to 275 or 225, but instead, I put on belt for another set at 315 and it felt perfectly fine. Moved fast.

    Deadlift
    135x5, 225x5, 315x5, 365x5
    Notes: All DOH. Unlike last week's 315x5 which actually felt kinda hard, all felt easy, light, and fast today.

    Sled Push
    Westside Butcher + 80lbs
    6 roundtrips - high handles down, low handles back with 1:45 rest between trips
    Notes: I've been turning the sled around at the end and doing high handles for both down and back. Took 30 lbs off and did low handles back today with the same volume and rest interval as Tuesday; it seemed about as hard overall as 110lbs with high handles both ways, but it's tough to really say after only one time each with the same rest period.

    Really can't seem to catch a break lately. Been feeling under the weather since Monday morning, and didn't train Mon or Tues. I still feel like I'm fighting something off - and using my Tuesday training time for a nap and being able to sleep in today seem to have helped - but it's not SO terrible that I felt like I couldn't do anything today. So just did some really light lifting, and hoping this will go away soon. I haven't succumbed to full out being sick yet, but definitely not out of the woods either.

    Squat
    45x5x2, 95x5, 135x5, 165x5, 185x5, 205x5, 225x5

    Press
    45x10, 65x10, 85x10, 105x10, 115x10x3

    Deadlift
    135x5, 225x5, 275x5

    Wanted to do some light work on the Erg afterwards but ran out of time.

    Thanks guys. Not 100% but feeling a lot better today than even yesterday. Hopefully I'm out of the woods.

    About a week ago, we got the collars to attach the chains to the barbells for chain work. I tested em out today so did a few sets at the end with chains, which I haven't really utilized before in my training. It was still super light, but given that I'm the strength coach here and that we have them, I ought to be able to answer any questions that come up about their use. Thanks to Reynolds for helping out with a few good pointers via text.

    Squat
    45x5x2, 95x5, 135x5, 185x5, 225x5, 225+40lbs chains x 5 x 3, 225+50lbs chains x 3x2
    Notes: I actually didn't know how much the chains weighed until I looked it up afterwards, but given where I've been lately, this was probably the right amount. Knee felt as good today as it has since this all started, after a lot of extra rolling and some aggressive voodoo flossing prior to squatting.

    Press
    45x5, 75x5, 95x5, 115x5, 125x5, 130x5x3, 115x7, 95x10
    Notes: Right infraspinatus or teres minor or whatever it is back there that's been bothering me felt better today than it has since it started flaring up, too. So that's 2x good news for the jews today.

    C2 Erg
    30/60 x 6
    Kept it nice and easy, just wanted to get back into the groove. These were all at 1:50-1:55.

    Honestly, as light as the weights were and as low intensity as the conditioning was, it was really, really nice to go through an entire workout without any major discomfort (minor, I still had, but I can deal with that). I can count on one hand the amount of times I've done that in the past few months.

    Thanks Dwayne!

    I have a Dwayne in my strength class who's about your height but about 100 lbs lighter. We started his squat at 145x5x3. He needs to become more like KONG.
