    Trap Bar DL
    I based this off e1RM so 220 s/b a @10 very much in my wheelhouse. Thats why I care about 1RM. Still getting used to this bar, 4th rep felt off balance/shaky, the way I imagine the earthquake bar would be.
    IDK how to combat that. And, my low back and abs SOOOooooo sore from the ab wheel, I can't believe it.
    225x4 yea; I misloaded, was 225. They all LOOKED easy but the 4th was fairly earthquake-y, very weird.
    185x5 @7RPE
    Comp Squat 140-150x6x3s (going for a HBBS max Monday so easy today; my last DL max took forever to recover from)
    140x6 @7
    140x6 @7.5
    140x6 @7.5RPE
    Comp Bench 90-95x6x2s (right rotator cuff/or bicep tendon pretty painful but I got it done)

    30x8x3s @2RIR
    BB Hip Thrust 95 + DB Arnold Press 20s @2RIR (rt arm did't annoy on this one? long pauses on hip thrust)
    95x15 + 20sx7 @2RIR
    95x14 + 20sx7 @2RIR
    0 + 20sx7 @2RIR

    Well; the app is pushing me and pushing me forward.
    Liberals are still pushing me to agree that babies are only babies if you want them.

    I am not a fan of the Trap bar.

    Just as you rightly point out, there's no way to stabilize the damn thing.

    You're putting in a lot of work Deb...don't let it beat you down.

    I think its much harder for tall people. I'm getting used to the workload, I suppose, and not against cutting a set or exercise that doesn't agree with me (split squats, I need to work on that though). I like all the diff exercises exposing weaknesses and, it seems to be making me stronger. I also am not full time or regularly working anymore (just Saturdays at the gym, graphic design is more a freelance I dont have that many clients; its not the best field anymore.)

    All work, IDK - the gov't claims that "wages are high" "good paying jobs" etc etc which, I have found to be pure bullshit.

    What you have is businesses advertising a salary RANGE; you are a journeyman or a senior or mgmt also in your field, so the top of the range is what you want, what you think they'll pay for experience and excellence.
    The "job description" is everything in the business - PLUS the position you're applying for; the "benefits" are "employee discount!" (the company makes plane seats) or "health insurance!! (but really they are letting you purchase $20/month dental/vision SUPPLEMENTS to health insurance, without having basic health insurance, woo hoo!);
    They want to start you at the low range of the salary, with the trick "90 days trial" THEN it'll be the high end, then they hope you forget or, they make an excuse to deny you. I would also say there is tons of age discrimination.

    I don't think its that people don't want to work; they see no point in breaking their asses to come up short, and I for one LIKE to think some have grown the balls to walk the fuck away (but probably not). Something I should have done at my old job which was essentially running the business for them and then getting screwed. IDK I'm considering getting a plotter bc here, when I ask for a quote and it's obvious I know what' I'm doing, they won't even quote me, I can't get a b2b price on anything, its like they're afraid of me.

    My liberal friends (west coat florida with money) were telling me they don't understand how I'm not making tons of money; why, the restaurant owners were telling them as they ate, people just won't work - they are actually paying a lot. These friends told me, waitstaff is getting $20/hr! plus benefits! It's a law, because BIDEN is just that great.

    I said, I ASSURE you that's a lie; otherwise folks would be FLOCKING to the waterfront eateries here. And, the liberalese - you're wrong! biden made it SO GOOD... the news SAYS so!
    So I looked up the ads for waitstaff (not in corner pizza shops but at higher end places and waterfront) - $6.80 an hour. No benefits. They make me laugh my fucking head off, the liberals, and people with enough $ that nothing affects them or their standard of living (just eat lentils! but but but abortion restrictions will affect poor people!)

    Anyway, so I can afford to take cat naps at times now. I guess it helps recovery.

    I see a lot of guys at the gym cleaning*. The one guy was snatching* with the 25's - but no one is dropping weights yet. His three-four friends last weekend, I was watching the snatcher, and they all said, "that's your lift, right?" IDK how they know I did Olympic WL. I said, well I've done exclusively that for a number of years I'm not an expert but I could tell you not to create habits that are really hard to break later on. They said I know more than them; not sure that's true. I post local WLing on our gym page (Vero Beach has a good WLing thing going); I asked them if I could get a VB coach or athlete to come teach the basics, would you guys want to learn? Yes, sure. Then I realized, well - I'd have to have many more bars and bumpers. :-(

    *using these terms VERY loosely; they're not realizing that the pull is something you do with your LEGS; the acceleration comes from your hips and speed. But they have a strength base and great proportions.

    Pizza Thursday, Pizza last night. BW still 176 this am. wth? I wonder if the rug I put under the scale is throwing it off.
    Wk 15 D1 I would have slept great other than rainy season is starting and the dog felt the need to sleep on my head, panting the whole time.
    HBBS 6rm (knew going in I had a lot more than I've been doing, its just the issue of trying to keep knees forward longer, hips under me, chest UP, that is so hard, so I went to 150 - shocked myself still a pretty big undershoot. Maybe getting stronger. Hope I can recover).

    Is this now the new standard, the leggings with a strap thing up into the butt crack, and weird sliver moons sideways under the butt cheek? Cellulite hiding and butt lifting - seriously??

    DELOAD NEXT WEEK HURRAY!!! Next are two strength blocks. My left hip/SI joint is hurting, noticed squats my hips were not even.
    Also realized my press, I am doing DB presses/shoulders so that might be why its down a little. I much prefer just press to DB's.

    The Hang Gang old man club; I still don't get it, its like lemmings - why does it have to be an empty barbell in the squat rack, to "hang" (its not a real, perpendicular hang - what they're doing, you can hold onto any upright in the gym, lean back and down so your arm's at 45 or less and pull on it same diff). Kinda crazy; is the crazy ME - or them?
