    Insane here, as Mac implies.

    Wolf, your back description sounds like how mine felt yesterday. Just on fire the entire session. Sucks balls that does.

    Maybe if you moved to Brooklyn it would make things easier. Probably crazy, but I thought I'd throw it out there. Manhattan is for millionaires and partiers. You're neither.
    I know. Biggest issue is due to the nature of my business I have to live close to where I coach people or else stick around 15-16 hours a day, which I am not willing to do. It's a problem.

    After some consideration, decided to to a full Intensity Day today. Though my back felt horrible on Tuesday, it felt fine pretty much every day since and today, so progressed my doubles as if it were a normal week.

    Squat
    45x5x2, 135x5, 225x3, 315x2, 375x1, 435x1, 480x2x3
    Notes: Not perfect with the knees but a lot better than last week. Need to recapture the glory that was the 470 week. And yes, that's a lot of warm-up sets but I dislike jumping from 315 to 405, and even if I did, I wouldn't want to then jump from 405 to 480. I'm ok with this, but might experiment with beginning higher than 135. I've done it before, but never higher than 155.

    Press
    45x5, 95x5, 135x3, 165x1, 195x1, 220x5, 235x1x2
    Notes: 220 was hard, but it was redemption from last week. Lateral elbow area was just the slightest bit irritated by squats but didn't end up getting in the way of presses. The reps at 235 were pretty hard. Nick D, I'm seriously jealous that you can do 225x5x3. I barely made 220x5.

    Power Clean
    135x3, 160x3, 185x3, 205x3, 225x2
    Notes: Remembered my band-aid and athletic tape to cover my scab, but at 225 I felt I was about to open it up so I didn't do the third rep and just called it. I think this was the right move. With rack pulls Monday, it should be healed by next Friday and I won't have to worry about it anymore. As it is right now, I open it every week, it bleeds a lot, and it prevents me from focusing on my first pull.

    Torched the Tris and Blasted the Bis
    Tris - EZ-Curl Standing OH Extensions: Bar + 70lbs x 12 x 2
    Bis - Alt DB Curls: 50 x 8 x 2

    I was pretty sure she said that. Did she say something different to you??

    Wolf, just letting it be known that Rori is no longer allowed on your porch. BTW, my favorite part of that evening was Josh's feet not being able to touch the floor while sitting in the big boy chair. Looking forward to getting together again sometime, obviously without Rori.

    Nice job on the squats buddy, and I'm jealous you've benched 315 for 5's across lol. Hopefully we catch each other soon.
