    Dead. Really deconditioned. These were just terrible. Fast enough though, so I won't complain too much.

    Easy.

    Too tired after squats, took me like an hour to do some easy bench so I called it there.

    Seems to be the trend these days. Take lots of drugs, get real strong, start a blog with something about science in the title, cite lots of shitty studies. Boom, instant e-fame from a bunch of newbies that cannot into actually reading studies.

    Well, pulled out of the comp, so no 300kg squat any time soon. Was just too beat up, too much shit kept hurting. I gotta fix that first, then I think I'll be ready. I think I'll keep logging until that happens.

    Yup, it was always a long shot.

    I did something at work on Monday (shitty physical job) to piss off my right proximal biceps tendon (the one that attaches to the shoulder). I just kind of saw the writing on the wall.

    So, new plan, lose 5kg of bodyweight in 10 weeks. Been sitting around 105-106kg (230lbs), down from 114kg (250lbs) at my heaviest. Very doable. Then, figure out when the next meet is so I can hit a 3xBW squat finally.
