    Still trying to figure out where to go from here.

    Sometimes your body just needs a break.

    3 days out
    Comp Squat
    120x3x3s @6
    Comp Bench 85x5x5s @8?
    Comp DL 155x1 E2MOM @6.5?
    Lat Pulldown 85x10x2s 4RIR (with the smaller handle thingy)
    Back Raise bwx10x2s @4RIR (this is the thing, I think that's bothering my knee and behind it)
    Leg Press 110x6x2s @5RIR (knee)

    I am not sure its not an illusion that I HAVE a choice of what to do next; could be I just will have to maintain. Talked to another trainer today, she said there IS an inflection point at my age...where going past is going to have limited returns (body will break down more).

    Was told again today by a guy who likes muscular fit girls that with my training, I should look like I lift, more muscle, less belly.
    Another guy 10 years older pointed out the typical hot-to-old-guys ladies (they're the "here I AM, boys!" hugs-guys-goodbye type, and are shaped like...hmm, twizzlers? Yes. Twizzlers!! I could probably snap them right in half).

    I am apathetic; don't feel the desire to win either guy's approval, fuck them.

    Couple days of rest for fatigue management. I worked yesterday, maybe should have trained before.

    And, today was not my day.
    Some kind of intestinal bug last night, no sleep, just got up at 3am, finally able to get to gym around 8 am.

    Other than sleep, squats seemed great left knee/quad much better; 170, 180 fine, easy... 1st attempt 185 seemed easy - til I hit the left safety! - 15s pause, got it but that wrecked me. Dumped 190, skipped another attempt in light of testing DL. Benched a solid 120 with a nice pause, careful of touchpoint, no pain at all, spotter said it was easy, but the right shoulder IS weaker at this point I noticed at lockout; tried 122 - right shoulder said, NO - didn't get it more than 2" off my chest; now I feel the shoulder a tiny bit. DL - just nothing left, didn't even go beyond warmup to 200, doesn't matter since I've done more in my training for all lifts to this point. It is what it is.

    A few days ago lacrosse balls found points in my back just below my shoulder blades, that were VERY sore. Almost IMMEDIATE right shoulder pain relief. Since then, I had no real shoulder pain, very minimal.

    Moving on.

    That sure is a LOT of work. It's at least a weeks worth for me.

    May need to rethink "bridge blocks" - OUCH. Let's see if I can walk tomorrow.

    Completely spent and covered in sweat by this point, feeling light headed as well...its all light, but so many that its burny and ouchie.
    A nap may be in order later, maybe an epsom salt bath; I hope to walk tomorrow, we'll have to see what the shoulder thinks (bench felt fine, acutely aware of keeping chest UP shoulders BACK... shoulder wasn't that keen on chin ups - glad I went back to pull-ups - big forearm/bicep DOMS and some shoulder pain again from that)
    IDK if I could train like this all the time, the trainer said he loves it, I think it might kill me!
