    Thank you gentlemen. I love lifting days. I hope you guys will always love them as well. My 94 year old friend and fellow lifter inspires me. Let us all inspire each other.

    Just under 2 weeks ago a storm caused electricity to go out for 5 days. Then last Saturday we experienced the effects of 4 tornadoes in our area. It ripped out trees and crushed a couple of condos in our subdivision. We only lost a few plants and flowers. But again, no electricity for 4 days. If things like this didn't happen what stories would we tell our grandchildren? Still we lifted.

    Squat: 70 x 5 (paused); 120 x 3; 170 x 1; 185 x 5 x 2; 175 x 5.
    Press: 45 x 5; 65 x 3; 85 x 1; 90 x 5; 80 x 5 x 2
    Dead: 135 x 3; 225 x 2; 315 x 1; 325 x 1; 290 x 5 x 0 325 went up fairly easily then 290 would not move from the floor. Next time I will rest 6 minutes between heaviest and back-off. I was gassed. The gym was a bit warmer than usual as well. Waiting for new AC.

    Good to have AC and great to be able to lift! I need to get my deadlift where yours is on your light day.

    Keep at it brother. You are likely to live longer than me so you will no doubt surpass my efforts.
    You know, I don't really understand why I do as well as I do in deadlift. I certainly enjoy doing them and hope someday to lift 4 plates on each end.

    I've done 290 x 5 two times in a row on the Deadlift. That's not a PR. I did 320 x 5 three years ago. I'm not back yet but I'm on the way.

    Squat: 70 x 5 (paused); 160 x 3; 180 x 1; 190 x 3; 180 x 5 x 2
    Press: 45 x 5; 65 x 3; 85 x 2; 92 x 8; 82 x 5 x 2
    Dead: 135 x 3; 225 x 2; 300 x 1; 320 x 1; 290 x 5

    Great work! My garage is not heated but it still feels like cheating. Big fans work.
