    BP: 225x5x3 PR
    Block pull: 420x5

    Big moment on the bench--went fine. The block pull was maybe a half inch higher than the rack pull (will measure next time), but that was fine with me! I wanted to see if I could get a block pull done in our gym, so that I could stop doing rack pulls. It was tiring to set up, but it worked. Our equipment is a little creaky for rack pulls, and the gym has only one bar that is good for pulling, which I'd prefer not to subject to rack pulls.

    Good news--I measured and the block pull setup is actually a little lower than I was rack pulling, so that will work fine!

    Still using the floss bands on the knees--I think it's helping. Trying to work out hamstring tension and depth on the squat. Wish these things came a little easier. Still getting good explode/break the glass on the press. Some singles tomorrow.

    Pin press: 179x5
    DL: 225x1

    Had a real pop starting to pull a 325 warmup for rack pull on Friday. Wasn't wearing a belt, so that wasn't the problem. I got really tight for the warmup. The only thing I can think of, besides bad luck, is that I may not have been looking to squeeze the warmup off the floor. It was late, somewhat hot, long day, long week, etc.--who knows.

    Good news is that pressing doesn't seem to be affected. Bad news is that one deadlift rep at 225 was all I had today. We'll see what I can squat tomorrow. I tried 225 on Saturday, but that was no good. I was able to do 185x5. We'll see how much I can do tomorrow. Looking through the forum threads, you try to train through it and it's 2-3 weeks. Hopefully, this is not a big deal.

    225 didn't feel great, could feel the soreness/ache, so called it at one set.

    Have done 3 press workouts for five weeks, followed by 4 press workouts for four weeks (also a bench workout each week). More frequent pressing has an effect. We'll see how long this runs out . . .
