    I don't know whether you're inspiring me to bench big or to give up entirely. But nice benching anyway.

    Maybe you could become the SS Curl specialist?

    Have you seen Horn's guns? Or your own?

    I haven't seen D'Agostino in a while, but there's always a chance he'll come around, so I can't be the overall O-lift specialist. Maybe I'll carve out a niche with the one-arm barbell snatch.

    Squat - high and low bar at each weight
    45x10x2, 95x5, 135x5, 185x3, 225x3, 245x3, 265x3
    Notes: Even though my back doesn't feel normal or 100% yet, I just had a feeling this might be better now. For the first time in 3 months, I was able to squat without making my back worse. It's still a little irritated at rest throughout most of the day, with some random brief periods where it feels fine, but squatting didn't negatively effect it in any way. That was a big breakthrough, and even though I stopped at 265 to play it safe, I was pretty excited.

    245x3 sets on IG

    Closed Grip Bench - (1ct) paused
    135x6, 185x6, 235x6, 255x6, 275x6x2, 255x6x2
    Notes: Easy.

    Sumo DL
    135x5, 225x3, 275x3, 315x3, 335x3, 365x3
    Notes: Since my back still felt OK, I thought I'd try DLs, but didn't want to push it so did sumo to spare my low back some work after the squats. Sumo feels so awkward to me, but back held up fine. #eatbutt

    Ring Rows
    BWx10x4
    BWx8x2
    All easy

    Use contextual clues (hint: "For the first time in 3 months, I was able to squat without making my back worse.") and look at what I've written about in my log at and since that time. Free of charge.
