    When I was in grade school it was a nickname guys that watched wrestling gave me. I knew it came from the WWE but I never watched it myself.

    Don't know why they called me that to be honest. I was a really skinny kid.

    It's not particularly important but Shane McMahon is the son of Vince McMahon the owner of WWE. Shane used to make appearances on the show and do some pretend wrestling. They called him Shaneomac. I'd guess it was a nickname of affection. Now you know some more trivia.

    Happy new year. A lot of people on the treadmills today.

    Carson, don't be mad but I went with 170 again today for my press. I diagnosed my wobbling as relaxing at lockout. This time I used my traps and kept my body as tight as possible and I felt a lot stronger. Actually got all 3 reps this time. My camera didn't record the first set because of lack of memory, which is a shame because I didn't wobble at all

    And I'm not really progressing very well on my BB Row. I can't seem to do 260 for more than 1 set without cheating the lift, which is why I cut back 5 pounds. Not really sure why that is. Making linear progress on everything else.

    I was falling asleep in the gym today. I knew I was tired before I went so I ate a big pre workout meal and drank 2 monsters, it helped somewhat I suppose. All lifts felt heavy. Days like this happen every now and then, although I'm surprised it happened on a Sunday of all days. I'm glad I was able to work through it.

    If the depth is anything like the 320 it's fine. Tough to tell from that angle but you go any lower and you will in lumbar flexion territory.
    440x5 is great, keep up the good work.

    I'm no longer able to workout on my own in the morning and I have to do various calisthenic exercises instead of lifting. This morning I did about 100 burpies, along with other body weight exercises.

    Every lift but my squat was absolutely weak. I know that these exercises that I have to do in the morning are interfering with my lifting. I don't think there's anything I can do about it though.

    Squat:
    45x5x2
    135x4
    225x3
    295x1
    315x1

    330x5x3 first 3 reps of each set felt very strong

    Press:
    45x5x2
    95x3
    135x2 felt heavy

    175x2 failed the 3rd rep
    170x1
    165x1
    160x1
    155x5x3 this was the weight I felt I could do a working set with

    Power Clean:
    135x3

    185x3x5 each and every rep felt very heavy. Several near misses

    BB Row:
    185x5

    235x5x3

    I have this pain in my left arm in the bicep area close to my forearm. It's a dull achiness and became worse when I benched but not when I did my pull-ups. I'll spend some time tonight looking up what it is and if there's anything I can do about it.

    I have tomorrow off so I'll have plenty of time to recover. Next training day is heavy squats and deathlifts.

    Squat: (light)
    45x5x2
    135x5
    225x4
    295x1

    255x5x3 I meant to do 265 but I can't do math apparently

    Bench:
    45x5x2
    95x4
    135x3
    225x2

    250x5x3 Can't call this a PR because I failed the final rep

    Glute/Ham Raises:
    10x3

    Chin-Ups:
    10x3 excited about how strong these felt. I might add weight to them and do sets of 5 soon.

    The elbow thing is a common complaint. Can get it from having the bar too low in squats or messed up wrist motion and poor shoulder mobility. I get them from shit power clean form (reverse curling). Shoulder dislocates before during and after help. Rolling on a lacross ball across the front of the shoulder helps. Some people notice improvement after rolling the barbell on the bicep. voodoo bands were best for me.

    Thanks Goat, it probably is tendinitis. It's in the crease of my arm, right in the center. Now that I think about it, I've had this problem very early, way before starting strength so that makes me feel a little better. If it gets worse I'll purchase something like those wraps for it. I'll try the barbell thing next time I'm in the gym.
