    Carson, you have a very comfortable lead... especially if you normalize with the Wilks co-efficient. Then we're into slaughter rule territory.
    But, you are quite the inspiration.

    Squat as HIIT
    45x5
    115x5x2

    *** morning workouts are limited to 5-10 minutes, the objective is to get some quick cardio and work on certain rehab activities.
    Thinking squats / deadlifts / Ring swings from
    Shoulder Rehab | Mark Rippetoe
    a warmup set with bar
    then about 80% of my press 5rm for 2 sets of 5

    I am attempting to become more reliable, aka avoiding / minimizing setbacks / injuries.
    Time will tell it always does.
    I still have some discomfort in my left shoulder on squats. Rather not have to resort to the safety squat bar.
    I guess the thing I have to watch is volume / over training.

    Carson:
    No response from my email from Karl. (maybe I'm in his spam folder) My brother was supposed to send me Karl's calendar link... he must have forgot too.
    Carson, you might ask your esteemed coach about the value of the shoulder arcs I've done, which got me off the Safety Squat bar and on to the B&R as God intended.
    But shoulders are complicated.
    https://startingstrength.com/video/shoulder_rehab
    I do them now because I've had 3 shoulder injuries in 2.5 years, and used this for rehab to great effect.
    I'll bet the "ounce of prevention" rules applies.
    Also use the range of motion you have, and you get more.
    But, I'd listen to Sully long before I'd listen to some knuckle-head you can out deadlift.

    shoulder rehab arcs... since shoulders are working... maybe Prehab
    72x5
    92x5

    I was starting to get twinges in my shoulders during PRESS and BENCH movements.
    throwing these into my morning routine sometimes seems to coincide with those twinges going away.
    Also less shoulder discomfort sleeping.

    Trying out oxymetazoline (aka afrin) at night sleeping when I saw Rip mention it.
    Works great. Lifting has done a lot of good for my sleep apnea, and this after only one night looks really promising.
    If this works, I'll have yet another thing to thank Rip for.

    pm

    SQUAT
    45x5
    135x5
    210x5x3 +5 from last

    PRESS
    45x5
    105x4 no belt
    100x0 uh oh
    95x5
    95x1 twinge in left shoulder, didn't feel bad
    felt more gassed than weak

    Music: I won't defame the songs... wasn't their fault.

    Thought I had compensated for my fade during workouts... I thought wrong.
    Probably could have hit both lifts doing the press first, or with half a scoop of protein powder.
    I have a whole new respect for good lifters.
    I hope I haven't re-injured the shoulder.

    Thanks Carson.


    Tue 11/13/2018

    Measured stomach at belly button because my belt "almost" no longer fits. Cant get the end in the loop.
    52" is not favorable for 6' 2", and I say that but I'm probably more like 6'1". Was 280 a couple days ago.

    Other than lifting, I'm just not active enough. I suspect the program sort of counts on people being "reasonably active to unreasonably active".... not unreasonably inactive.

    Changes:
    - will attempt to take 6x 2.5 minute walks at work. (aka around the builing inside).
    - will nortic trak ski for 10 min morning (fasted) and Evening.
    - mornings will also include my shoulder arcs (Rip's video), light or heavy depending on where I am in the cycle
    - will continue my 3 day a week (2 lifts a day) "program"
    - more serious about my Keto diet.

    Weight goal: 240


    Tuesday
    am walk 10
    work walk 2.5x6
    pm walk 10

    Something to consider.

    Once I got a FitBit and started wearing it 24/7 (except for in the shower), my perception of my activity level and awareness of the metrics increased significantly. So now I look for things to register on the calorie counting function.

    Christmas is coming, and since I seem to recall you like to paddle, the Charge 3 may be just the ticket. Is the Fitbit Charge 3 waterproof? | iMore

    Thanks Mark! I'm a big fan of the fitbit.

    I'm wearing my original fitbit bean now. (still works) Had it about 5 years, since the "bean" was cool.
    Pre-lifting, I walked, despite needing a cane(s) and later trekking poles (custom made).
    I attempted my usual "hour a day" of walking when I started lifting and immediately got over training symptoms.
    So I over corrected, knocked off the walking, at least the "programmed workouts".

    But Sully talks about off day walks. No danger of me "running".
    I've always tolerated the nortic trak pretty well, even when I needed canes to walk.
    In fact, when injured I used to do the nortic trak because I could.

    So I'm "easing into it", It seemed like doing the lifts as cardio was doing bad things. Bad workouts, pain, overtraining feeling.
    We'll see how this goes.
    I've started estimating my food intake, and I'm on Keto so my diet is pretty simple.
    I found some bad stuff, too much whiskey and dark chocolate.
    I'm also sleeping better with the afrin at night, and a morning and evening "nose wash out" from Rip's thread.
    I'm waking up on my own.... which is unheard of.
    I'm going to bed earlier... long a weakness in my program.

    So there is a shot gun approach going on.
    Isolation of the good from the bad may not be as reliable.

    But I do have goals:
    - Go cross country skiing this winter (N. Wisconsin? eventually Yellowstone)
    - Not be last on the Wilks score at my next Strengthlifting Meet.
    - 3 wheel Dead (+75 from last heavy set)
    - 3 wheel Squat (+105 from last heavy set)
    - bw 240 (was 280 a week ago, today 268)

    We'll see what makes sense as we get there. I'd also like to do some day hikes at Yellowstone, probably some kayaking.
