    Bench Press: 190 for 8 sets with 3-2-2-2-2-2-2-2 reps.

    Close Grip Incline Press: 150 for 3 sets of 3.

    Hammer Row: 320 for 3 sets of 5.

    Hamstring still good. Friday's session with deadlifts will tell the tale.

    All is still well with the hamstring. Reviewing the log I keep on a spreadsheet in my phone, I think I see now why this may have cropped up. Normally after a competition lifters take 1-2 weeks off after such maximum efforts to recover. I had a gap of a mere 4 days. Another lesson learned. Probably even more important at my age. I don't like making concessions to it, but the body needs what it needs.

    Anyway, conditioning with 3 sets of 3 box jumps and medicine ball slams, followed by speed bag, SciFit, heavy bag, all interspersed with some time doing air squats off the Samson blocks at the correct depth to dial in how low the proper depth should feel.

    Deadlifts: 305 for 8 sets with 3-2-2-2-2-2-2-2 reps. Hard on the 2nd rep for all 7 other sets. It makes me wonder how tough adding a 3rd rep will be on these remaining sets.

    Dips: There were 3 dip belts in the Rec Center. Only one could be found and it was lacking some essential carabiners. So I'll have to come back with my own later.

    Catch up day.

    Weighted Dips: 60 lbs. for 3 sets of 5.

    Squats: Light weights working up to 135 lbs. to get the right feel of real depth. First with stacked Samson blocks for box squats with a pause at the bottom and then with a bungee cord for touch and goes.

    I was doing box sqts like Rip had shown in a video. I think I'll try the bungee cord next time I sqt. Good luck with the rehab.

    Thanks Jerry, I'm done with the rehab. I'm doing fine after the deadlifts so far. Unless the hamstring acts up on me again, I'll just be training as per usual.
