    My legs were still tired and sore from playing kick ball with the grandkids yesterday.

    The 325 was a little hard but nice and deep and never stopped moving. Comeback still going strong. Bench tomorrow for first time in months.

    Doctor said go with lighter weights so I did.

    Hopefully I will be able to squat 440-455 at the National Championship in October. Thursday I go to the Castle Metroplex and try out the Kabuki deadlift bar they will be using in October.

    Yesterday I took my 2 students to the Castle Metroplex in Fort Worth, 25 miles away, after they told me yes, they had a Kabuki deadlift bar we could use. We get there and they have a terrible Texas deadlift bar. Nothing like the kabuki. We need to try one out because the meet in October they use that bar.

    The knurling was so bad it was cutting my hands open and I just dropped the bar after 335. Worst bar ever. I'll just use my regular bar until the meet. At least my back is holding out. Come to find out the Kabuki bar is owned by an individual and he had it at a strongman contest. If you own a gym don't tell people you have something people can try when you don't even own it! Damn!

    When I woke up I said to myself, I don't feel like doing squats today. My buddy called and all of a sudden it was squat time. I thought I would just do a couple of warmup sets. I did that and then did 2 heavier singles. I guess I felt better than I had thought. A short workout is better than no workout!

    Hot and muggy humid in my garage and over 80f. I cut my workout short but still hit my target weight plus 5 pounds. I still believe I will squat 400 by June. Hopefully 440 by October 27th. It isn't an easy comeback but I am very confident now!

    Wow, I really surprised myself today. First time doing bench in a few months and to do 200 for me is great. Sure wish they could fix my terrible shoulder, but I'll deal with what I have left. If I can get back over 220 without hurting my shoulder again by October, I'll be stoked! Any extra weight means a better total. I know I can get to 240 but it hurts so bad. I guess I will find out.

    The 340 and 345 felt and moved like 225. I was going to do 350 but decided to stop and go eat. Glad i did. I still have 26 weeks until meet. Sure feels great to start getting strong again and no back issues. An old man can survive!

    My legs are killing me because Thursday is deadlift day. The bar we were using was a very thick squat bar then a bar that spins. I'll use my own bar next time. The back is still holding up so that is the most important thing for me.

    Squat day, my favorite day. My buddy came to the new gym today and he brought his buddy. Ran his damn mouth the whole time. Then he grabbed one of my knee wraps without asking. I politely told him, you touch my stuff again without asking and I will break your f&&king legs! Got me so distraught that I put on my right knee wrap but forgot my left one. Started down with 315 and my left knee felt like it was going to pop. Got back up and I didn't have my left knee wrap on. That is the knee that is really messed up. I told the guy, hey, shut the fuck up now, I am going to squat 350. And I did, but something isn't right. My left knee is really hurting since the squat with no knee wrap. I don't mind people who train and know how to behave around others who are training. I told that guy, don't ever come near me again when I am training. I still have a headache from his mouth!
