    Each time I start over I really struggle with one of the lifts. This time it is the Dead. R's 3&5 got away from shins on work set.

    IDK WTF.

    Cinched up another hole and tried WS again. Having some difficulty setting lower back. I know it ain't heavy. Attempting to run a caloric deficit and I am pretty sure I am short on protein. Maybe I crossed an invisible age line? I was hoping to add 10lbs for 3 more consecutive sessions.

    Bad plate math. Supposed to 145x5x3. Knew the 1st seemed tougher than it should have been.

    It has been a bad week. Someone went to the apple orchard and brought back a dozen apple cider donuts and then made an apple crisp (I forgot to top the ice cream with protein powder). Someone else made brownies. I decided to have a shake and curly fries with an Arby's roast beef yesterday instead of the 3 eggs I took to fry up for lunch.

    WS,R2 felt a bit of strain in left lumbar, kept hands on bar, tried to pull 3 more times. Rested 3 minutes and pulled remaining 3 np.

    How joyous it is to share the mental shit-show that is my deadlift. I can only hope that Rip, Santana or Uncle Shug come by and use some derogatory and appropriate term to motivate me.

    I can sympathize. Yesterday, someone brought home a giant pizza along with raw cookie dough. Man, that shit's good.

    Rumor is that I will be spending quite a bit of time manning the auger cart this fall. I will keep stringing sessions together.

    After reading and watching the latest from Coach Phil Meggers, I believe I have been setting up too close.
