    I have what I assume to be arthritis in my left hand and sometimes in my left knee. It comes off and on. I can usually lift despite it. Today, not so much. My left thumb and main joint would not cooperate but I lifted until I had to stop. Bummer.

    Squat stretches.

    Squat: 70 x 5; 120 x 5; 160 x 3; 200 x 2 (this is where it began to affect my lifts); 225 x 3 x 0 x 1 x 0 I could not hold the bar with any strength in my left hand.

    Bench: 45 x 5; 95 x 3; 125 x 2; 140 x 0 x 0 I could not hold the bar.

    Mama said "there'd be days like this."

    That makes you advanced, not intermediate.
    Your perseverence and patience inspire me, along with the heaviness of the weights you have reached.
    76 (now 77) now,

    Thanks for the kind words. Sully suggested I was now advanced intermediate. I'm a bit hesitant to jump to the competitive category since my numbers aren't what I'd like, yet.

    If you are preparing for competition (which you are), you are a competitive lifter.

    There is a great deal of logic in that.

    Sully dog is way ahead of me. BTW Dr. Sullivan says "lay off the squat stretch for a while". The pain in my thumb seems to be caused by the impossible stretch my wrist has to make just to keep contact with the straight bar. It looks like this >. Not good.

    Strength training has overcome many of the downers attached with aging but sadly, not all of them.

    It turned out not to be arthritis. But it still hurt a bit but not like last Friday. I did no squat stretch because that's what caused the problem. I'm not sure what I'll do about it come the Fall Classic. Light day.

    Squat: 70 x 5; 120 x 5; 160 x 3; 202.5 x 5 x 3
    Press: 45 x 5; 65 x 3; 85 x 2; 105 x 1; 113 x 1; 79 x 8 x 3
    Prowler: 0 x 6 x 1; 85 x 6 x 4

    BTW My wife once again achieved 2 prs.
