    Maybe I should define that. Any day I get a full or even partial workout done without any tweaks, is awesome

    You got that right! It only gets worse as you age but lifting helps a lot with your body aches and pains at least for me.

    Keep at it.

    Thanks Matthew! The 50th post, thatís right before TUBOW saved my lower back. Been better ever since.

    Thanks Fred! Yes even with occasional tweaks I feel better all around.

    Oh man the TUBOW was expensive. Special edition I guess.

    Thanks Bingley!

    Good workout day (by my definition)

    Dumped my 4th rep of my first squat set again. I have video proof I canít duck walk to save a past the toes CG, and that my rack works nicely.

    (Took me and the boys to DQ for blizzards, then came back and did my deadlift)

    Iím going to implement a light squat day mostly to work on form. A tempo, pause, pin squat. Slow down to the pins, pause staying tight, slow up. Working on balance , bar path and depth.

    Iíve had sloppy bar path for some time, but could muscle through it. Not any more.

    On the upside, the 3 reps I got, I felt something tiny in my hamstrings. Thatís a first. So maybe Iím getting close to leaning over enough to involve them. That would be nice as it feels like my quads do most of the the up drive.

    I did overhead press before squats again, which lets me save time while doing Horn stretching before starting squats. So Iím thinking to press first every workout.

    Plus Iím going back to the office more, so Iím thinking to split my workouts to press & squat before work and alternate bench and chins, followed by deadlifts after work.

    I ordered a 10kg bar, I may try power cleans with that. The 20kg just seems too heavy still.
    Or I may decide Iím old and do Romanian deadlifts on clean day.

    Oh, and I gotta say eating is the hardest part for me. At first I was happy to eat more, but it never ends. I need to redouble my efforts to get enough protein. Sigh, I can just hear RipÖ

    Yes it was Bingley. I watched the replay and am very thankful my instinct was to open my palms and get my fingers out of harms way.

    Today I did 160 light squats focusing on bar path and butt back. Still getting out over my toes. At 160, I can muscle up up. But Iíve got a bad habit that is going to need work. This will be my quest for a while.

    Today was my first press every workout day with press and squat in the AM and the remainder in the PM. It seems this will work.

    Iíve upped my protein to 252 minimum each day. Protein drink with a shot of coffee, used to rinse down 2 eggs and a grilled chicken snack, 4 times a day. Doing this with my morning coffees seems to help. I have a skip breakfast habit.
    Then I eat what my wife fixes to get some veggies, carbs, and more protein.
    I was drinking a half gallon of 1% milk a dayÖ but Iím always fullÖ

    Good workout day

    Still getting my squats out over my toes.
    Reached out to a Seattle SSC to see if I can get some hands on help.

    Did my first Romanian deadlifts today, real light to start.

    Good workout day

    Screwed up my math on the press, thought I loaded 95, but forgot to pull the 2.5s so had 100. Couldnít hit rep 3, pulled off a pound because I thought maybe jumping from 92.5 to 95 was too much while pressing 3 times a week. Thought it was 94 and couldnít hit the 3rd rep because it was 99. Ö then I redid my math, put an actual 95 on and got 3 reps, missed the 4th. Then went again and got 1 rep. Sigh, math hurts.

    I have a session scheduled for next Saturday with an SSC in Seattle.

    I did manage to keep my squats off my toes todayÖ
