    BW (3/18 morning): 238.0#
    BW (3/19 morning): 238.0#
    BW (3/20 morning): 236.4#

    Sleep has generally been 7-8 hrs.

    Squat w/ belt
    465x1 @6?
    500x1 @7? .40 m/s, smoked it
    Squat mojo is back? Maybe need to increase attempts.

    5-1-5 Tempo Bench
    165x5x3
    Not as bad as last time.

    Deadlift w/ belt
    495x1 @6.5
    515x1 @7
    540x1 @7.5-8, .21 m/s
    Felt OK. Hint of back rounding when I pulled it off the floor.

    Squat and deadlift video: Instagram

    I still have a little bit of low back fatigue from last week, but otherwise feeling fresh.

    Sold my rower for $600 today too. Same as what I paid 2.5 years ago. It's been a good birthday.

    The dude who came to pick it up owns a CF gym nearby. He wanted to bet me $50 that he could do more squat reps with 225 than me. I passed... I would probably run out of air at around 20. Invited me to come to his gym and lift. Might do that every now and then to change it up.

    Lol... he offered to give me a 6 month diet plan and program if I won too. He said he could increase my lifts by 30% (!) while I lost weight. I was thinking... dude, I would be a WR holder.

    When the bar is out of the rack casually mention that you did 36 the week before.

    Eh, at that point the deal was done. I also don't need any other random people from Craigslist coming to my house.

    A CrossFitter.

    One other thing I forgot about - he told me I should go to the main Westside gym in town. LOLLLL... I had to keep a straight face, but I don't need to learn the tricks of squatting a foot high in multi-ply equipment.

    Just think you much you could squat in those circumstances! Then you could tell the Crossfit guy you squat 900 and that's probably how he already envisages your training anyway.

    Also, I though the whole point of Westside was that there's only one Westside.

    The lady who runs the gym is probably considered a "Westside" lifter, and it's only about 100 miles away from Simmons' gym:
