    Thanks, Jerry. I'm not that strong, although as the day went on I'm clearly fighting a cold. They were cheap readers. My $600 pair, I never use (progressives) because I got rooked (I'm a graphic artist/prepress specialist, I need to see the entire 21"+ screen all at the same time).

    At Golds Flanders: has an eleiko SVR platform + rogue bumpers + OPB. Farther from home, same from work. Went there from old gym (told me there's a new rack, arrived & there was not so had to double back).
    I pcl a quick 95# no warmup, and then a quick pcl&jerk between floor press sets - drops from two heights - there's hardly any noise, a little bounce, should be ok though (they just don't want an uncontrolled bounce that breaks something or goes out of control off the platform and I can't lift that much. Maybe a new home base for the granster?)
    No ladies in this gym either, kinda getting looks - that's THEIR problem, I did nothing wrong.
    Pleased that squats felt easy; press down today but not upset still on a high (and underrecovered a bit) from TNG reps w/ 130 sunday.

    Flanders. There are other women (older) training with weights. woo.
    Bigger fatigue factor on squats today, undershot a little.
    Press was better, maybe getting used to the heavier bench.
    Need a better feel for the platform, short stepped jerk because it seems so tiny (I also need to take the safeties off the rogue rack); its weird to be able to drop, used the OPB bc I didn't have my oly bar with me (there's a mirror so I face the entire gym to C&J - doh!).

    Flanders. DL rep PR I think (influenced by The_Robert_Santana.) Granny's weak-ass DL's.
    Comp bench seemed easier today.

    may be a good fit for me; ladies my age to aspire to - way stronger than me. I like it.

    Hktwn. Everyone around me's hacking/coughing/sneezing/vomiting. My stomach doesn't feel great, kind of lightheaded, so I trained like there's no tomorrow in case I get sick (I really want to finish this cycle).
    Squat stations taken, bench first. 2s is feeling easier, I'm thinking my 2s is too long, like 3 or 4? Ouch. Belly said no 2nd down set.
    Who knows the relationship between leg press 315#and 360# over 6-12" ROM, and squat? What would I have to squat to leg press that, although - I've never tried. I saw ladies doing that today and another strong lady upside down in smith machine doing the same weights. Geez I'm a weakling; what must their squats be like???

    Press 55x6 65x6 75x6 75x4

    Don't sweat it about the leg press. I'd bet those ladies would find a 135 squat hard to do 1 Rep. Feel better.

    I saw the lady trainer with a client on it today and I asked her, what's the relationship - she said its not apples to apples, and no those ladies can't squat that weight.
    ok. good enough.
