    I wasn't expecting to feel this beat up either. A little like recovering from a football game.

    I did the straight bar squat at the meet to demonstrate to others and myself that I could do it. I think my straight bar squat days are over. The more I look at how far my wrists especially my left wrist was bent back I can only imagine a broken wrist someday. I'm glad I did it, but no more. Onward to 315 on the squat using the safety bar.

    Most likely a very sound decision. The important thing is to be strong, which you certainly are. Go with what works best for you, and keep kicking gravity's ass!

    315 SBS sure is something to be proud of. Go for it!

    Good call Carson! Glad I captured the moment.
    Being strong is the end. Workouts an motivation are the means.
    To me meets are motivation for the workouts. I hang my 3x5 card from the meet where I log on my airdyne during workouts.
    Sometimes it is the connections that keep us going.
    But whatever it takes to keep us going, that is worth looking into, considering the alternative.
    374 is quite a dead lift!

    Squat: 70 x 5; 120 x 5; 160 x 3; 200 x 1; 220 x 1; 236 x 3; 214 x 3 x 2 Form and Depth are finally quite consistent.
    Press: 45 x 5; 70 x 3; 100 x 1; 108 x 1; 86 x 5 x 2
    Dead: 135 x 3; 225 x 2; 315 x 1; 337.5 x 3 Not a PR but I'm heading towards one. The lifts seemed more or less simple and doable. My PR for 3 is 340. I'll be doing more than that soon. My goal for July is 385 x 1 and for October 396 x 1.

    I love Medium Day. It doesn't always love me. Squat and Press were great. Deadlift not so much.
