    I have played team shuffleboard recently. Does that count?

    I've done this before. It's humbling.

    I've also done this and then got angry with myself and two minutes later crushed it. DL is very much a mind game.

    Nothing like starting a log, then completely screwing things up.

    Squat
    45x5x2
    135x5
    175x3
    205x2 b
    235x1 b
    260x5 b 3m
    260x5 b 6m
    260x4 b 6m

    I was dreading squatting today. After Wed's hamstring issue, noticed some right lumbar pain Thu through this AM. Set 3, rep 3 was a (somewhat) grind, rep 4 - much more so. Didn't want to attempt rep 5 with lumbar issue and my tendency toward questionable form. When bench was harder than expected, I realized I didn't eat much today. Specifically, very little protein.

    Bench
    45x8,7
    95x5
    135x3
    165x1
    185x5x3

    Deadlift
    135x5
    225x3

    Wasn't happening. May have time tomorrow evening, or do Mon with squats/presses.

    Just warming up for DL. Bumpers were still on B&R bar from yesterday's disgrace, so I used the chic bar.

    EZPZ (?) Going after some redemption from the last two DL days. Appropriate food today and not squatting heavy likely helped immensely.

    "I Don't Need No Doctor" live version was a nice touch for the work set.

    Squat
    45x5x2
    135x5
    175x3
    215x1 b
    245x1 b
    265x3 b
    265x2 b
    245x5 b

    Should be 265x5x3. Just tried to do what I could with form that didn't degrade and mess with right lumbar region.

    Bench
    45x8,7
    95x5
    135x3
    165x1
    190x5x3

    Noticing some left elbow tendinitis. Didn't think arms have been that bad during squats.

    Deadlift
    135x5
    225x3
    285x1 b
    325x1 b / h / chalk

    Well, once again - that didn't go well.

    Didn't "deserve," but what the hell - I want to get up at midnight and piss.

    Appears the struggle bus drove by and I jumped on.

    Squat
    45x5x2
    135x5
    175x3
    215x2 b
    245x2 b
    255x2 b

    Due to low back and the 4vck1ng left elbow tendonitis that has crept in - trying some different form cues. Someone recently mentioned that Baraki uses "elbows to your sides." So I tried and it definitely kept my wrists straight, as opposed to flexing like they normally due at the bottom. But tendonitis still flared. Back wasn't too bad.

    Press
    43x5x2
    73x3
    98x1
    123x5x3

    Much harder than I thought it should have been.

    Deadlift
    135x5
    225x5

    Just a little volume.

    Dropping chins. Don't know if they caused/aggravated tendonitis, but I didn't have it before I added chins (and it happened last spring when I went chin crazy). I know that it is likely a squat form issue, but the extra deadlifting may help me work on that form at lighter weights.

    Giving the elbow and back more time off (may squat/dl tomorrow). So more bro' lifting:

    Bench
    45x10x2
    95x5x2
    135x3
    170x1
    195x5x3

    Extra warm-ups -- since no squatting first.

    Going to 2.5lb jumps from here.

    Squat

    175x3
    215x2 b
    245x1 b
    265x4x2 b
    265x3 b

    Just testing back and left elbow tendinitis while trying to keep intensity up. Went pretty well. Called each set when I felt form degrading (elbow or back).

    Squat Cue: Pull elbows to sides - little fingers on outer rings.

    Deadlift
    135x5
    225x3
    285x1 b
    325x2 b / hook / chalk

    Same as squats. Lost lumbar on rep 2 - called it good.
