    Well said. My brother visited NY and Manhattan last summer. When I asked him what it was like, he said “just like Dallas in the summer but it smells like hot garbage and piss and there are a LOT more people.” He didn’t make too many friends.

    Enjoy yourself. Good luck with your training. Your lifts are inspirational.

    Went a little out of usual order today. Benched and then DL'd in the powerlifting area, which has calibrated kilos, so my #s are a little wonky. I wasn't able to get the bar I wanted though.

    Also, off topic, but I finally received word from the moving company that my things are scheduled to be delivered tomorrow! It's been a challenging 2.5 weeks without them, and it will be really nice to be able to start putting my home-life back together again, instead of sitting in a fold-up camping chair all day and making endless trips to Target to get one thing at a time that I didn't want to buy because I already have, but just couldn't hold out any longer without.

    Bench: 3" belt
    180kg x2, 182.5x2x2 (402) @7.5-8
    Notes: Solid. I'll put the wrist wraps back on next heavy day.

    402x2 Bench on IG

    Deadlift
    257.5kg x1 (568) @7
    220 x5 (485) @7
    Notes: I was going to be conservative after last week, but my last tester single at 240kg went really well and I felt nothing at all in my low back, so took the bigger jump to 568. Went fine. As did the back-off set.

    Press: beltless, no wraps
    210x5,5,4,4,4
    Notes: EZPZ. Starting to taper off volume a little bit already, both for a big intensity day coming up Thursday, as well as for the meet in general. I still have a press 5x5 PR coming at 245, but that's just one workout. My bi-weekly volume is starting to come down just a tad now.

    Chins and Pullups
    BWx3x2 each = 12

    Straight Arm Pulldowns
    2x10

    DB Curls
    45x8, 55x8x2

    I've been generally tight lately so did a little forbidden stretching and mobility stuff at the end, doubtful that it helps but it was just 5-10 mins and felt good. Also threw in some ab wheel rollouts. It's been years since I've done those, probably weighed 230-240 last time I did them. Surprise! They're harder when you're 280!

    A little late logging, this is from Tuesday, 12/11.

    Press: dead stop, strict
    165x5, 185x5x2

    DB Bench Press: neutral Grip, narrow
    70x8, 85x8, 100x8x2
    Notes: Hadn't done DBBP in five-ever, but these were super easy. Didn't go up cause I have a heavy press coming up the next workout. Gym DBs go by 5s to 100, then 110, 120, and that's it. And the 110 and 120s are huge, so that'll be interesting to do anything but DB rows on.

    Leg Press
    135x8, 225x8, 275x8x2

    Cable Row
    3x10
    LTEs
    90x10, 120x10x2
