    They're not optimal, to say the least. You are taller than me, if I am not mistaken, so your anthropometry must make long drives and airplane rides more tortuous.

    Related: on either a long drive OR plane ride, I'm not inclined to drink as much water as I should. Sure, I arrive at my destination a bit earlier having avoided restroom breaks, but I am parched.

    *I had a delicious Sunday morning breakfast of steak, 3 eggs, home fried potatoes, and toast. But I had to wake up earlier than a usual weekend morning, due to the daylight savings time "spring ahead". 3 hours later, my pre-workout coffee, whey, and Clif Bar felt like it just piled on top of the stubborn breakfast still in my belly.

    This all becomes relevant when I get to deadlift in yesterday's workout.

    Gym 1300

    Medium SQ: 270x1 (overwarmup), 240x5. Game time decision to back off next set to 225x5.

    Medium DL: 295x5. *I put my 4" belt on for this routine medium-day workset of 5. But as soon as I bent over and tried to get "squoze", I knew it wouldn't happen, at least without a Technicolor yawn. So I took it off and did the set beltless, without issue.

    But I was drained enough to tank the pull-ups and chins I programmed for afterward. I will move P/BP day from Saturday to Sunday, and do pull-ups and chins after that.

    I've been deadlifting twice weekly for a minute now (heavy, medium). But the last 2 DL workouts, it felt stale even on medium day. I'm going to switch to a weekly DL, on Wednesdays.

    Gym 1300

    Medium SQ: 280x1 (overwarmup), 250x3, 240x5, 225x5. I decided to speed up my descent a bit, with good results.

    Chins: BWx8, 2. I saw some advice in the nutrition forum about chinning three times a week, and progressing volume weekly, starting with 20 reps a week and adding 10. This week my goal is 30 reps so I'll shoot for 10 reps each workout. First set is always AMRAP, so I'll see if I can get 9 next time.
