    Pin press: 167x5
    DL: 315x3

    Got good, tight position under the bar on the pin presses, went fine. Decided to trim my 80% deadlift down to just a triple, as any improvement to recovery would be nice. Forgot that they should have been halting, not regular (went fine).

    SQ: 275x5x3
    OP: 148x5x3

    Squat still coming back; doesn't feel great. Almost pressed four times last week, but Sunday's workout slipped to Monday. 148 is my second-most for 3x5. A PR is still a couple of weeks away--we'll see. I did note that I am getting a little breath after every rep. The process is quick; the press set is done in 20-25 seconds.

    There aren't too many gym rituals I wouldn't try, even if only for amusement (no smelling salts . . . yet). I have taken to drinking a shot glass of our leftover coffee and calling it my "pre-workout" as a joke. Two ounces of cold half-decaf coffee isn't likely to have any real effect at all, but it lightens the mood and tastes so good!

    BP: 221x5x3
    DL: 400x3

    Bench slow, but fine. Bar path decent. Got to the gym late in the day. After bench, focus was slipping, under-motivated/hydrated/nourished/recovered. I've got a lot of excuses. On the deadlift, reps 2 and 3 were not great, and I called it there. Some soreness after and next day. We'll see if some squats help.

    You are doing great especially for someone in their fifties as I believe you said.

    Thanks, Fred J! I find Barry Charles to be an inspiration. In May, he threatened to write up his story--I hope he does!

    I remember reading that one. It's quite the story!
