    You know that burning tearing back pain I had last time? Gone. It improved over a few days after it first happened and then I forgot about it until today. Whatever.

    Man, these are brutal, but they do work and they save a lot of time.

    I can hardly believe it's only been a month. Feels like two since I last lifted.

    Had to move after covid-panic job cut & subsequent pay cut made paying rent impossible. Yes, being strong made a tremendous difference in all the heavy lifting and carrying needed to do so. Yes, I have far too much stuff. No, I don't want to ever do that again.

    Can't find my shoes, but they must be around here somewhere. Lifting barefoot for now.

    Squat
    45x5x3
    95x5x2

    Press
    Had to put the platform in the living room at the new place. The ceiling is too low for standing press. Weight bench won't be here until next weekend. Crappy bar for lifting outside also won't be here until next weekend. Been doing some pushups here and there.

    Deadlift
    135X5
    185X3
    225X5

    Tweaked the shit out of my right lumbar this morning moving the plates from the far garage to the platform inside. As in, could barely stand or move due to the pain. It had been a little sore all week as my residual strength started to fade in earnest and I kept bending over to pick up or move sort of heavy things and assembled the platform & rack. Anyway...squat didn't hurt it more, but didn't make it feel any better either. Deadlift made it pain-free by the time I was done. Not permanently, unfortunately, but at least I can get around the yard and not look like a frail old man now.

    Surprised this isn't lower. I sure feel smaller and weaker.

    There is an interesting challenge here: the floor is not really strong enough to take the impact of a quick deadlift descent, so I have to set them down somewhat carefully.
