    Thanks Shug! I wish Saturday's squat session was as strong, but it was a shit show as 410 felt like 500. A combination of fatigue and nagging injuries that refuse to get better. I considered pulling out of Worlds because I won't be near my best, but will go just for the experience.

    Today:

    500M row warmup

    Slingshot bench - Not part of the program, but did it anyways to get a feel for heavier weights. Felt easy...
    170kg-1@ rpe 8

    Comp Bench - Now reducing volume and increasing intensity.
    135kg-2 @ rpe 6
    140kg-2 @ rpe 8
    137.5kg-2 @ rpe 7

    T&G incline press at 45 degrees - Took a narrower grip than my flat bench as it seems easier on my shoulders.
    100kg-6@6.5
    105kg-6@7

    I fought plantar fasciitis on my right foot for the past year. I found that Kuru (name brand of shoes found online) have really fixed that problem for me. I have only worn those shoes (except for lifting) and it is pretty much gone for me. I get lots and lots of knee pain too...3 surgeries on one knee and the other one hurts because I favor the multi time injured one. The only thing that helps me is knee sleeves...I have a set for lifting of course but I have another set that I wear all the time...they are more elastic and they stay up amazingly well (the brand is Uflex). Finally, I hot tub nearly every night. I put jets on the bottom of my feet and on both knees. This does more for me than anything else. 20 minutes of water jets on what hurts every day is pretty good therapy. Keeps me under the bar even when I didn't think it would be possible.

    Best of luck and I hope some of this may help you.

    Thanks for the ideas Dean! I've been fighting plantar fasciitis for the past few years on and off. When I spend too much time on my feet I pay the price. I've found that good supportive shoes are absolutely necessary. Stretching my calves both ways helps too; I'm looking into getting a used calf raise machine since it helps so much.
