    At least you got something in. Driving that long does fatigue you.I do like Cracker Barrel breakfasts.

    Yeah, I mentioned the drive to one of the coaches walking past, and he commented, "Commitment". Maybe training after a 4 hour drive is doable, but I don't think I'll plan to train after any more drives longer than that. Cracker Barrel sticks to your ribs, as they say.

    There's an article here titled something like, "Just Concentrate on the First Rep". I realized that it's helpful when I do squat sets across. For my second set of fives, I start with the assumption that I will only do a single. Of course, I don;t give into the temptation to stop there. The second set always feels easier than the first. There's a thread here somewhere about that.

    When the weight gets heavy, I just can't seem to correctly breathe at the top on Press 1.5, without losing tightness on the eccentric.

    Imagine that...I came home from training today to find that Rip also weighed in on a squat form check I commented on in the Technique sub forum (not Rip's own Q&A forum, or even the SSC forum). Since I was the only other user that commented to the OP, I thought Rip might have corrected some egregious observation I made. But I was pleasantly surprised to see that he concurred with me. Glad I audited the last Atlanta seminar, and planning to fully participate in the next one.

    Also programmed BP but didn't have enough time because I forgot to factor in the gym closing early for the holiday.

    After my first empty bar warmup set, another trainee at the gym kindly pointed out my bar position on SQ was asymmetrical. It must have been painful to watch: it takes a while for me to get my pinkies just inside the score marks on the knurling, with my wrists neutral and not over-extended. But apparently the bar still ended up higher on my left side than the right, perhaps on the spine of the scapula, rather than just below. This coincides with the left delt and scapula pain and tightness I feel lately.

    Hung from the chin bar afterwards for a couple of sets, wide grip and then press grip width.

    After thinking about it, I decided to try something today on Press, which seemed to work well: doing more than one rep per breath, and getting a stretch reflex at the bottom, but doing it on reps 2-3 and 4-5, as opposed to reps 1-2 and 3-4, if that makes sense.

    I always do the first rep on the same breath I hold unracking the bar. But even though I go right into the press immediately, there is still a few seconds stepping back into position.

    I figured the second and third reps, as well as the fourth and fifth, might be more suitable because they don't include that initial step back, and thus less time holding my breath.
