    Thanks guys. As our 93 year old lifter likes to say "Onward and Upward."

    That deadlift PR is outstanding. You continue to be an inspiration.

    Every session is a mixture of satisfaction, even delight, and disappointment. This heavy day was another example.

    Squat: 70 x 5 (pause); 160 x 3; 210 x 2; 230 x 1; 252.5 x 1; 227 x 4 x 1; 3 x 1
    Bench: 45 x 5; 95 x 3; 135 x 1; 155 x 5; 140 x 5 x 2
    Dead: 135 x 3; 225 x 2; 315 x 1; 335 x 3; 300 x 5 The disappointment was not doing 350 x 3. I did 345 x 3 over a year ago.

    Next Monday is my next try at 385 x 1. We will see.

    Light Day. What a strange period we are going through. There are no guarantees in life. If I have a light cough I think "is this a sign"? My wife and I work hard to keep the gym clean and stocked with disinfectant wipes, antiseptic liquid, paper towels, tissue, etc. So far all is good.

    Squat: 70 x 5 (Paused); 160 x 3; 210 x 1; 227 x 5 x 2; 125 x 5 x 2 (paused)
    Press: 45 x 5; 75 x 3; 100 x 1; 115 x 1; 123 x 0; 86 x 8 x 2

    We are all asked to wash our hands at least 5 times per session and wipe down equipment including benches.

    Good work! Be well!
    Do what you're supposed to do, but don't worry... we're not in control anyway.

    Sadly, the gym is closed for at least two weeks. Chris and I are effectively in quarantine. I guess that's best for old farts. We had planned on being with grandchildren this week and during the first week of April. But that's gone.

    I imagine it's is close to the same for everyone. This too shall pass.

    This sure is something I never imagined a few weeks ago. I had a trip to Arz., the Grand Canyon, Colorado and Oregon planned for April with my brother, we are cancelling.

    It's looking every day as if we may not get to Israel this May.
