    Not shockingly, felt pretty beat today. The erector is still hot, and dammit if the elbowcanceritis didn't come roaring back, too. That was especially disappointing as it felt fine all day yesterday, went to sleep without any issues, and just popped up again today as I started lifting. Really frustrating. But still got some work done.

    Snatch Grip DL
    185x5, 275x3, 275x3 regular DL - DOH
    325x3,5,5 - belt, 1.5" mats, straps
    Notes: Erector wasn't thrilled so tried narrowing grip and doing regular DLs, that didn't help any. Went back to snatch grip and used 1.5" mats and that was a little better so did that, kept it light, got some work.

    Bench Press
    305x3, 325x3, 335x3, 335x5 @8.5, 255x10
    Notes: Elbowcanceritis was really kicking in here. Painful and uncomfortable, but I managed to put another 10 lbs on my post-op bench set of fahve. It was harder than last week's 325x5, partially because elbows ad partially because of the press workout I did yesterday. But still pretty solid.

    Ring Rows
    8, 10x4, 8 = 56
    Notes: Planned on weighted chins, but alas. The itis ruins all.

    To a certain extent, yes. At some point, something you never did but easily could have can't really count as a PR, i.e. if I had gotten my squat up to 750 in the interim without doing any heavy 5x5s, going back and doing 455x5x5 would only be a PR in the most narrow, technical sense, but without any true accomplishment. I do consider this a PR because it's hard enough relative to what I could do, at my pre-injury best, that it's still an accomplishment. But it's not the same as a PR that represents achieving a new level that I couldn't have done before.

    Looks like we got a burgeoning bromance on our hands here.

    Back and elbow hurt today + leftover fatigue from earlier in the week so it was meh.

    Safety Bar Squat
    - belt
    75x10x2, 160x5, 230x3, 280x3
    310x3, 330x3, 350x3, 370x3
    Notes: Nothing hard here, just very dodgy in my left low/mid back. On Monday it really just felt like tightness. There was no moment where I felt it tweak. But now it's sure behaving like a tweak. FML.

    330, 350, and 370 SSB Sets + a whole lotta booty shakin on IG.

    Press - belt
    220x1, 232.5x1x3 @9s (wraps for these), 165x5x3 - dead stop
    Notes: Not much to report here. 232.5 weren't bad compared to how Thursday presses have been lately. 165s were easy.

    Ring Rows
    BWx8x4

    I found myself that very tight position of 2.0 presses with floating the bar(for long forearm) does damage my elbows even though i don't feel discomfort when i do them,but always day after.It's getting worse when i do 2.0 more than 1x a week.

    It's the way I hold the low bar squat that causes the issue for me. It then affects and bothers me most during benching, slightly less but still a lot for chins, and to a lesser but noticeable extent during pressing. If it gets bad enough, sometimes even twinges a little when holding a heavy DL. But the squat is the cause. More on this in my next log entry below.
