    Bench Press
    45x10, 115x8, 155x5, 185x5, 215x5, 235x5, 250x5, 235x5
    Notes: Didn't feel as good as Thursday. But moved fine.

    Also, I signed up for a week long gymnastics camp in October. All 268 lbs of me. So that should be interesting.

    Solid day today. Shoulder still feels weak when I am at top weights but overall I kinda feel like I'm actually training again, a little, instead of purely rehabbing.

    Press
    Warm-up stuff
    45x12x2, 85x10, 115x8, 145x6, 165x5
    Belt - 185x5, 195x5x2
    140x10
    Notes: 195s were hard, but that's getting up to some actually decent weight now. Might put my wrist wraps on again soon.

    Squat
    45x5, 135x5, 185x5, 225x5
    Belt - 265x5, 295x5, 315x5, 345x5
    Notes: Felt good as I went up so jumped to 345 instead of planned 335. Back felt fine. Reps were fast. I can still feel the tweak a lot in day to day life (putting on socks or pants, sitting down), but it seems to be getting better enough to squat fairly quickly.

    Chins
    BWx3, BW+10x3, BW+20x3, BW+30x3, BW+35x3x6, BW+10x4, BWx6
    = 40 reps total, 31 weighted

    Bench Press
    45x10, 115x8, 165x5, 195x5, 225x5, 245x5, 260x5, 225x8
    Notes: These really didn't feel great today. Switched to a closer grip and that was a little better. Still moved pretty fast.

    Power Clean + Push Press
    45x5, 95x2, 115x2, 135x2, 155x2, 165x2, 175x2, 185x2
    Notes: Added the push press on a last minute whim, just to get more practice with it. They were easy so kept doing them as I went up. Pulling is the gym movement that currently aggravates the tweak the most, so have to be careful here, as I can feel it (more between sets than during). But I think pulling this light won't hamper recovery.

    Light day today, back still improving slowly.

    Press
    Warmup stuff
    45x12, 75x10, 95x8, 115x8, 135x8x3
    Notes: A little soreness when I started, at 45 and 75, but fine after that. Felt faster and stronger than last Weds' light day.

    Squat
    45x5, 135x5, 205x5
    Belt: 255x5, 295x5, 335x5, 365x5, 335x5
    Notes: Shoulder still needs extensive warm-up to take a low bar position, but is definitely faster than before, and in a slightly better position with elbow up and wrist straighter. Back is feeling better, but still pretty tentative, I did the top set of 365x5 pretty slowly. But it doesn't feel any worse afterwards, and keeps feeling a tiny bit better each day, so continuing to add weight.

    Chins
    BWx5x4
    NGPU
    BWx3x4

    Bench Press
    45x8, 115x8, 155x5, 185x5, 215x5, 245x3, 265x3x2, 185x5 - paused
    Notes: Shoulder didn't love these today so just went up five lbs and did a couple triples. I narrowed my grip and did more of a CGBP at 245 and 265 and that helped a little, then widened back out for 185x5 paused and that was fine. Might've just been a cranky day, esp considering it was a little achy at the start of pressing, too, and that hasn't happened in a while.

    Glad to hear the back is still coming along.

    Understandable. I always admired floor and rings athletes. Generally a group of people not messing about.

    I was joking. Really they are just some skills that I've been interested in for a long time, but never made it enough of a priority to do anything about. I have no illusions about being super gymnasty at my size, but it'll be a fun time working on some of the basic skills, and just playing around. It'll also probably end up being less expensive than if I took a traditional week vacation somewhere, and I'll also probably meet some great people.

    I figured, haha. And I like flipping around too. Bust out a backflip about once a year jut to prove to people I still can. Never looked into actual training. I'm sure it'll be fun.
