    I lack the requisite eloquence to sufficiently elucidate the dizzying volume of basketball I participated in over the course of this week.

    Monday 9-16-2019
    Basketball:
    I seriously don't even know, at least six games, I stopped counting. The last one was 2v2 for extra running around in literal cirlces.
    Deadlifts: 515 lbs 1x1 Speed Reps: 365 lbs 6x3 Normal Reps: 405 lbs 4x7
    Bench Press: 300 lbs 1x1 265 lbs 6x4
    Floor Press: 245 lbs 5x3
    DB Bench Press: 75 lbs 5x10

    I NORMALLY try to do some conditioning on Tuesday, but since I played so much basketball on Monday, I figured I'd give it a rest.

    Tuesday 9-17-2019
    Squats:
    1x1 515 lbs
    3-1-0 Tempo Squats: 385 lbs 4x6
    Barbell Row: 195 lbs 5x10
    Barbell Curl: 70 lbs 5x12
    Box Jumps: 5x8

    Wednesday 9-18-2019
    Basketball:
    Two 2v2 (ugh) games
    Deficit Deadlifts: 405 lbs 6x4
    Power Snatch: 185 lbs 5x2
    Close Grip Bench Press: 225 lbs 4x8
    Chin Ups: 5x12

    I NORMALLY try to do some conditioning on Thursday, but since I played some basketball on Wednesday, I figured I'd give it a rest.

    Thursday 9-19-2019
    Squat:
    515 lbs 1x1
    Safety Bar Squat: 340 lbs 5x8
    Barbell Row: 195 lbs 5x10
    DB Preacher Curl: 40 lbs 5x12

    Friday 9-20-2019
    Deadlifts:
    515 lbs 1x1 405 lbs 4x8
    Paused Deadlifts: 445 lbs 4x2
    Basketball: 3 games.

    I NORMALLY try to do some conditioning on Saturday, but since I played even more basketball on Friday AND that caused me to be unable to bench press before the gym closed, I gave it a rest and did the bench press on Saturday.

    Saturday 9-21-2019
    Bench Press:
    300 lbs 1x1 285 lbs 4x2 225 lbs 4x8

    Not as much basketball and, coincidentally I'm sure, my ankles, knees, calves, quads, hips, glutes, back, and legs aren't as bloody stiff and sore as they were after the week before.

    Halfway through this workout, I was walking across the basketball halfcourt to the bathrooms and someone shooting around missed a shot that bounced kind of towards me. I lunged to grab it and toss it back, and in landing all upon my right foot, I felt like I kind of jammed my quad, if that makes any sense. I THINK that was the cause of intermittent knee pain for all of two days.

    Tuesday 10-1-2019
    Squats:
    525 lbs 1x1
    3-1-0 Tempo Squats: 385 lbs 4x6

    Barbell Curls: 75 lbs 5x12
    Box Jumps: 5x8

    The side of my knee kind of hurt doing some things and not others. I had to bail on snatches because the knee bend on the catch REALLY make it complain, but deficit deadlifts were no issue. I dunno.

    Wednesday 10-2-2019
    Deficit Deadlift:
    415 lbs 6x4
    Spoto Press: 235 lbs 4x6
    Chin Ups: 5x12

    My knee ache MIGHT have been a tight IT band. Because stretching it appeared to make it a lot better, to the extent I was able to do all the squats I intended to do, even though walking down stairs caused mild ache before leaving for the gym.

    All right, I'm going to skip recounting the two week gap because it's basically the same as the two weeks before it and I'm lazy. I also pulled my right trapezius muscle doing a snatch last Wednesday, which had mostly recovered by Sunday. But between that and several other parts of my beginning/continuing to ache, I'm taking a Recovery/Bitch Week. This is that week.

    I switched from powerlifting to strongman and have not even thought about going back for year. Meets are way more fun. They take about half the time. You should give a local amateur strongman meet a go.

    I will say that now that I can qualify for "Masters" I have thought about giving Powerlifting another go. But after hearing your story I do not miss 9 hr meets to to 9 lifts!

    Right? LOCAL USAPL meets seem to go a lot less ridiculously, but they still take at least all afternoon/morning. Which isn't THAT bad for DiryRed, Golf Chode, if they at least manage to get started on time and not have me waiting around for 90 minutes with my thumb up my ass.

    NOW, after Bitch Week, my shoulder was aching worse than it was for the previous weeks where I was ignoring it, oddly enough. To the point that normal movement was causing mild ache. So I went to the doctor, they gave me an anti-inflammatory shot, and told me to do nothing with it for a week. Including deadlifts and squats and curls (I asked). And after that week I took a week to build back into lifting right quickly, and test out just HOW recovered the shoulder was. It (along with the rest of me) appeared to be at least 95% recovered, so I got back into a full load of lots of stuff that probably has some rhyme or reason to it if you tilt your head and squint. That was this past week.

    Also, I dropped back down to 206 lbs because I didn't want to eat a bunch of food and gain weight when I couldn't LIFT it into at least some muscle. So the Turbo Bulk is on to hit 215 lbs by Christmas.
