    I hate moving.
    Probably not the last time (I plan to upgrade one more time before totally settling), but it's to a better place, so good in the end. The biggest friction actually comes from all the other stuff. Work (poor planning and project delays make the schedule for the next two quarters a little iffy, and a senior member is resigning when we're already short-handed [not bitter, I'm happy for her and looking forward to the opportunity to fill her shoes]), final project for master's program, wife starting new job, getting my time-consuming hobby back on track, summer travel and family stuff. Feels like a whirlwind sometimes; I think it's all great stuff just hectic.

    BW - 191.8

    Sqt:
    325 x 5@7*
    345 x 5@7.5
    355 x 5@8, x5@8.5

    B:
    245 x 5@7
    260 x 5@9, x5@9.5
    255 x 5@7.5

    Pr (no belt):
    135 x4@9, x4@9, x4@8.5

    Whole session was very rapid fire; definite conditioning aspect. Squats felt good, though. No pain, so I think I have worked out stance. A little greedy on bench, but nothing to worry about. I was definitely pretty fatigued for the press afterwards.

    What kind of squat stance ended up working out for you? Glad you found a solution!

    I take a medium stance with my toes pointed out at the angle I thought was correct then rotate them in just a bit. I also have been doing a warmup more like what Jordan Frigginstrong recommends.

    BW - 194

    SGDL: 315 x 6@6.5, 345 x 6@7.5 x 3

    Press: 155 x 5@7, 165 x 5@8 x 3

    Anterior Squat: 215 x 6@8 x 2, x6@6

    CGBP: 225 x 6@7.5, 235 x 6@9 x 3

    Notes: Lifted on Sunday. Travel tonight (alone on a plane with a sub-2 year old!) for (final) class this week.

    Did the deadlift variant rather than being pigheaded a risking form breakdown. Had a weird bug that made me feel awful, but after 2-3 sets of muddy water rockets on the toilet, I felt better.

    Front squats got way easier on the last set. I think I just suck at the movement, but muh legs're strawng enough to do more.

    Press was also easier than expected, but I was worn out on the bench.

    Also, I don't know what 190.190.4 body weight is, but I feel like it must be above my pay grade.

    Travel is some bs. Good to see you staying strong during your cut.

    Ha, fixed. Thanks. My phone sometimes lags when typing and repeats letters for some unknown reason. Seems to be part of the autocorrect demon.

    Travel definitely makes training harder. "Strong" is a very generous term, but I'm not really trying to lose weight anymore. I'm pretty stable around 190 +/- 5 lbs. I'm competing in November in the 90 kg weight class so I can even gain a little weight if I'm feeling feisty. Mostly, I just want to get back into PR territory and get over 1300 at the meet.
