    Good to see a youngster getting religion. Keep at it and stay consistent. It's a cinch by the inch and 80% of success is just showing up.

    You too may achieve full geezer status in a few more years, ya pup!

    Spots on my forehead I keep noticing after lifting heavy. That can't be good. Anyone else have that issue? There is a direct correlation with lifting heavy.

    I searched the forum and found some information on broken blood vessels. I'm guessing it has something to do with valsalva technique and my HBP.

    There is something very satisfying when finish sets in both ways to me.
    1. "Last rep of the last set was ugly as hell, but I got her done!" Being able to accomplish this and not give up is a huge boost for me, gets me excited about next session.
    2. "Finished strong!" Leads me to believe that last rep on this one was easier and that always gets me pumped for the next session to progress!

    Of course, I also don't mind missing a last rep and thinking, "Next time we meet Pal. You're going up all the way."

    Enjoying your posts.

    P.S. Very curious about these spots. If you figure something out please post.
    Thanks Travis

    Squat 250x5x3

    Press 127x5x3

    I stayed at the same weight this session on the press and finished much stronger than last Wednesday. Time to move up to 129... Slow grind.

    Strong work!

    I've had good luck making my own "monster mash".
    There are videos Stan makes, and those are great. Certainly cheaper than buying Stan's frozen meals.

    I take a whole frier put it in an 8 qt slow cooker covered in water.
    High for 2 hours or so until 165, (I use a instant read thermometer)
    Remove chicken to cool 30 min.
    Slow cooker to low, with water, add 2 bay leaves.
    Strip meat from chicken, bag and refrigerate.
    Hammer bones and fat and throw back in slow cooker, let cook overnight. (cutting them is a lot of work)
    use slotted spoon to remove bones and fat
    pour broth into soup pot, with strainer and cheese cloth. Let cool on stove then refrigerate.
    (you just made over 3qts of bone broth costing more than that chicken you're still going to eat)
    optional make 2 cups (uncooked) rice with 4 cups of water *OR* 4 cups of bone broth (I do bone broth)
    Dice chicken meat, Add rice and mix, put in containers, add more broth.

    I make a lot of this for the family and the chicken, especially the white meat (which I do in a separate batch).
    Since I prefer the dark meat this works out great for me. YMMV.

    $10 gets you about 8 meals this way. And the broth is better this way. I make double batches using 2 slow cookers.

    Notice I didn't use any spice other than the bay leaves. It needs salt and pepper. Also Celery salt and Oregano to make soup (more broth is available).
    The broth is also useful for other soups, especially if the crew gets sick.

    Good luck!

    Thanks, I'll have to try that. I haven't used chicken to make the Mash.

    Indeed the meals are expensive, but sooooo convenient! I keep ordering them every few weeks.

    I have 5 to 6 different hot sauces to make them more interesting.

    Wednesday's training log:

    Deadlift 290x5
    I'm looking forward to getting feedback on my form at the Starting Strength Seminar next weekend. This lift is the one I think I can improve the most.

    Bench 180x5x3
    First set was my worst and felt weak. Sets 2 and 3 I focused on bringing my shoulder blades together and my valsalva technique. The last set felt the strongest. 185 bring it on! That will be back to my PR of 185x5x3. My shoulder still doesn't feel 100%, but it gets better every week.

    You got this!!
    Fyi. I hurt my shoulder a few years back, knocked me back a year. Since then I start every session with internal external rotations with orange bands and red face pulls.

    Looking forward to next posts to watch you hit these numbers.
