    Today I moved my Press grip closer, to where my index finger is half on the inner knurling and half on the smooth. It felt great. I picked this tidbit up watching the latest episode of the Barbell Logic podcast, which was actually directed at novice lifters on expectations for their first SS workout.

    I also tried the Barbell Medicine periworkout supplement GainzZz, and it felt great. The can I bought should last me right up until the 10/28 meet.

    Today I missed the 5th rep of my DL. I had switched from fives to triples plus one backoff set back at 295. But today was my last "regular" DL day before the 10/28 meet, so I wanted to see if I could get 5 instead of "just" a triple.

    SQ: 270x1x3

    DL: 305x4+F. I only pulled the last rep maybe an inch off the floor.

    CGBP really hurt my left shoulder today. I had already planned on deloading. I had gotten to the point last week where my first workset was singles across, and my second a triple rather than fives.

    Still, today hurt such that I stopped at one workset of 5, instead of at least two sets. The tropical storm humidity didn't help, either.

    Starting next week, I think I'll do CGBP at home, instead of the gym. I have metal sawhorses for safety racks and the height is such that they are essentially a paused CGBP to pins 2 inches off my chest, rather than a full ROM with a stretch reflex. After the meet, I'll have to go back to the drawing board with regular grip BP.

    Today was the first time I trained in my garage (as opposed to the gym) in 5 weeks. It was due to a change in my schedule. Bottom line: I wasn't going to train at 0530 in the gym 2 mornings in a row.

    I didn't get the 5 reps I hoped for on my first workset of P 2.0. I didn't fail the fifth, I just stopped there. I also missed reps on my last triple, but it's just because I got out of position so I'm not too worried about it. Occasional workouts in my garage do make me appreciate the equipment in my gym.

    Today was my last heavy Saturday before the 10/28 meet. I won't train tomorrow. Next Saturday will be "just" meet openers. I bought a new Inzer singlet off Amazon and trained in it.

    SQ: 275x1x2. Game time decision to stop at 2 singles across, instead of 3.

    P 2.0 119x1 10/14/17 - YouTube

    DL: 295x1, 305x1, 315x1. There was an SSOC blog article about peaking for a strength lifting meet by doing 5 pyramid singles, adding 3-3.5% to each single. I stopped at 3 because 324 was my PR and I didn't want to do any 1RM before the meet.

    CGBP: Thought I would do them at home, since I'm not training tomorrow. But they hurt my left shoulder too much, so I only did 45x5x2, 95x3, and 135x1.

    Pushups: thought I would try these but couldn't even do one due to the pain.

    Trust the process, and the work you've put in. Dial it all back, get a massage and you'll do great!

    Thanks. Dialing it back will happen naturally as I just have one more volume workout before the meet (Wednesday). Saturday will be openers and then just an 80% workout next week. Great tip on a massage.

    Today was extra special because I took the day off work to train with my son, who I haven't seen in a year while he worked in the Middle East.

    10/18/17
    Gym 1100

    SQ: 255x3x2*, 250x2. *My program called for 255x3, then 250x3x2. But my son was helping me load and unload my bar. On that second set, what had happened was: I unloaded my side of the bar down to two 45s, a 10, and a 2.5. But he arranged two 45s, a 10, A 5, and a 2.5 on his side. Thought I lifted a lopsided 250x3, but it was a lopsided 255. After a bewildered "WTF!?" and some good-natured ribbing, I only did a double of 250.

    P 2.0: 110x5, 3, 3. I programmed more volume than that, but called it a day after 3 worksets. Video shows that my hip thrust needs to be more violent.
