    Today's work - moar LP...

    SSB squat (beltless) - 330 x 5 x 3
    Press (beltless) - 155 x 5 x 3
    DL (beltless, w/ straps) - 400 x 5

    Nothing special. Stuff's starting to get heavy, but not awful.

    Circuit - Curls/pushups/90 s plate swing - 3 each.
    15 minutes treadmill - 3.5mph @5deg - 15 minutes.

    Wow. The 90s plate swings really worked my mid-back. My mid back was really tired after I completed this - it maybe better than rows...

    SSB squat - beltless - 335 x 5 x 3
    Bench - 255 x 5 x 3
    DL - beltless w/straps - 405 x 5

    Going to add belt to DL and squat next week to keep the LP rolling. Also may do a light back workout next Wed instead of heavy 5s - power cleans or rows.

    Yesterday's work (1/30/22):

    Power cleans -
    no belt - 185 x 3 x 5
    add belt - 205 x 2 x 5
    Technique on these is improving. Last couple of sets I started to run out of gas - power production drops off precipitously. I'm just freaking old, I guess.

    Pullups
    BW x 10, 9, 8

    This morning (1/31/22)
    SSB squat - beltless - 340 x 5 x 3
    Press - beltless - 157.5 x 5 x 3
    DL - w/belt and straps - 410 x 5

    So, I'm kinda doing an experiment with the belt. I've done lots of beltless stuff the last few weeks. I noticed that, for the first time in years, I can sleep on my belly without low-back pain.
    I thought I was just old. I'm wondering if the belt is causing this. I'll end up adding the belt back, but I'll try to figure this out to see if there is a connection.

    2/1/22
    Super sets of:
    Pullups (7 reps), Dips (12 reps), Plate Swings (60s)
    x 5 sets

    Good cardio...
    Trying to stay true to my goal of doing a little something, most days of the week. This took me about 20 minutes total - including turning on the radio, setup, etc.

    You're right - real work that actually did something useful - instead of laboring with weights! I must say, the weights are more fun...
