    Dr. Petrizzo and I will discuss this. He may want to include the deadlift so he can teach his famous Petrizzo wiggle. Speaking of which...

    I've seen your last Videos on Instagram and I have a question where do you get this t-shirt with the place bar here?

    I think you're talking about the grey T-shirt I wore on Monday? Bluegrass Strength. That was given to me a couple years by SSC Walter Palmer, no idea where he got it. But you can ask him.

    Light day of deload week.

    Press - dead stop, strict
    95x5, 135x5 155x5, 165x5x3

    Squat - belt at 185+
    135x5, 185x5, 225x5, 265x4, 295x3, 325x3, 345x3, 365x3
    Notes: This was iffy. Felt worse than Monday but still not exactly pain. Reps were easy, back doesn't feel worse afterwards but during and immediately after the heavier sets, it wasn't great. I'm conflicted on what to do here. On the one hand, if I don't start squatting now, I have essentially no chance of working back up to where I was before all this shit began. So taking the chance of re-tweaking it might be worth it, since if I don't start now, it won't matter anyway. On the other hand, if I DO try to work it up now and re-tweak it, dealing with a whole new set of time away from lifting having to heal from the very beginning will suck balls, and 1-2 more weeks off might allow it to be OK enough to train hard for a month and at least get back up to 550 or so, even if not 600. No clear way to play this.

    CGBP
    135x5, 185x5, 225x5, 255x5, 275x5x2

    Chins
    BWx3, +20x3, +30x3, +40x3x3, +30x5

    Deadlift
    135x3, 225x3, 315x1, 405x1, 455x1
    Notes: Back situation on these similar to squat. Also - though I am a huge fan of the SS DL set-up and have loved it since I stopped being stubborn and finally started using it in 2010 or 2011 - today, because of my current injury, I experimented with dropping my hips lower to set my back. More of a "confidence in my currently fucked up back" thing than a mechanical advantage, because I thought perhaps the feels of feeling good and solid and tight before the pull would be helpful considering my current pain situation. I used the "sit back" style that doesn't push the bar forward of mid-foot, but instead you kind of lever yourself down and back using the heavy barbell as a counterweight. But hips are lower and you're in an easier position to set the erectors hard. I didn't even break 455 off the floor. Then did 455x1 at about an RPE 7, despite the discomfort of my back distracting me. This obviously isn't proof of anything for many reasons, but I was honestly a little surprised that the rocking back hip-drop to super set my back, didn't work as a "feels placebo." Even with the pain immediately upon initiating the pull in the SS style vs later on in the other style, I was still way better using the SS Perfect Every Time set-up.

    And suddenly, out of nowhere late last night, my left pec feels like it has a strain. Not during the workout, which was CGBP anyway, but late last night. Out of nowhere. On deload week.

    Thanks, Obama.

    The good news is, for now, I seem to have managed to not fuck it up worse. Neglected to log my Friday workout due to a busy weekend at a family event, but at least as of now, seems to be doing better.

    Friday, 2/17

    Bench Press
    345x2, 365x1 @7, 345x2 @6.5
    Notes: Used a slightly closer grip and went a little lighter than planned, both due to concern for my pec. Seems to have worked - as of now (late Sunday night, seems better).

    Press - belt
    185x5, 195x5x3 @7, 185x6
    Notes: Solid. Most of the fatigue I felt earlier in the week is gone. Still a touch, but felt much better Friday than Mon or Wed.

    Belt Squats
    Various set-ups up to 124x5. Couldn't load much heavier without the apparatus getting in the way of my legs and getting deep. But didn't bother my back at all.

    Ring Rows
    BWx10x5
    Notes: Also avoided chins since they have contributed to pec aggravation in the past.

    DB Alt Curls
    40x8, 45x8
    Notes: Kept this light since I hadn't done db curls in a while + deload week.
