    Thanks Jer...

    Looks like the weather will be a non event in our area. We'll be on the outer edge, if that. Winter has been fairly benign, save the 20 inches we got two weekends ago.

    9th Cycle / Week One - reps/sets

    Hi Bar Squats - 205lbs 7*3
    Larsen Spoto - 155lbs 7*3
    Tempo 2 Tempo Goblet Squats - 5olbs 15*3
    Cable Chest Press - 70lbs 10*3
    Hammer Curls - 50lbs 20*3

    Had to train off site, as my gym is holding a two day event.

    Shitty equipment (I'm getting angrier about it as the day draws to a close). Squatted and Benched in a Precor Rack, one of those racks with the bar on rails...at an angle no less.

    It was better than nothing I suppose...Benching was hard, but Squatting was damn near impossible.

    I'm going to a weekly recap, as opposed to per session #because

    9th Cycle - Week Two

    Bench work was nothing special. Building towards a solid paused single, 92.5kg in week four. Shoulder is no better / no worse, but still not 100%. Fortunately, signs of green shoots do exist, the dumbbell work was done as Tempo, at 60lbs...that's a dumbbell PR.

    Deadlift is shaping up for a nice run at 205 / 210 come week four. I feel like I've found a cue that can help me avoid my hips shooting up before the bar breaks the floor. We're not doing as many "hinge" movements this cycle. It doesn't seem to be hurting my pulls.

    SBD Saturdays don't feature any Pulls or RDLs; doing Safety Bar Squats for reps, which is a change from past Saturday sessions at this time in a cycle; Bench is shoulder friendly with 2 Board sets for reps. Belt Squats are in the program again, as are Reverse Hypers (it's been years); and as always, lot's of single leg extensions and banded hamstring curls.

    If you're so inclined, you can see all this play out on my Instagram feed: @gymdad150 the gory details are posted there
