    250g of protein a day does require dedication (and reveals it, too, I believe).

    Default 60 yr old Day One

    Good workout day.

    Today was an eat what I want day, a break from my standard 8 eggs, 4 chicken breast “bites”, 4 protein drinks, plus what my beloved puts in front of me. Sometimes we put half the eggs and chicken in a nice salad, which is actually easier to choke down.
    I did ok today, 2 eggs in a bowl of rice for breakfast. 4 chicken legs with toast for lunch, same for dinner. 2 coffees with a protein drink (not a terrible latte). 3 bananas chased with chocolate milk for snacks. But ooh the joy of just eating and not tracking grams of protein.
    (Boo hoo I know…)

    Did 82.5 for press in lieu of 80 because those plates let me have both the press and squat loaded up for my back and forth workout without swapping plates each time. I’ve got some more plates coming to make two full sets.

    My belt one notch tighter, per Coach Fangman’s advice, seems to be helping me keep my back/shoulders out over my deadlift longer which lets my knees straighten more first. I can feel that making a difference.

    Did everything after work today, and after some household stuff. Started late.

    Did my back and forth squats and bench which saves me a lot of time. Then I went to deadlifts. Hmmm no real break after squats. Back felt a bit fatigued but was ok.
    My third deadlift rep, I felt something “sharp”, threatening to be sharp I guess, in my lower left side. I aborted the rep. My guess is gas. Deadlifts, especially after a meal make me burp quite a bit sometimes. So I walked around burping as best I could, then tried again. Nope still there. So I called it.

    Then I was thinking about deadlifts after eating, trying to get my whole workout in the evening, deadlifts being noisy on the porch in the evening… and thought, hey I could deadlift in the garage before work, the low ceiling doesn’t matter, and with the door down, shouldn’t be too loud. I’m gunna try that.

    Deadlifted before work in the garage. That worked ok.

    I know what that pain is now. Felt it on my warmups and even dragging the plates. Some little muscle in my… “core” is tweaked a bit. Same thing as Monday, got 2 reps and chickened out on the 3rd.
    I’ll decide what to do Saturday. Deload, go for 3…

    Yes they are Bingley.

    Good workout day.

    I seemed extra tired this evening, I don’t know if it was the 2x5 deadlifts first thing in the morning, 11 hours in the office, or maybe not enough carbs today. Maybe that, I didn’t have any deliberate carbs today. No chocolate milk, no rice, just chicken, eggs, salads, and protein drinks.

    Also on my low bar squats, I think I’m getting the bar a bit too low and loading my elbow just a bit. I need to watch that. I think I’m doing it on the heavy warm ups as I work my hands narrower. On my work sets I move out just a bit for comfort.

    PM
    Squat 170 x 5,5,5
    Press 92.5 x 5,5,5 (moving to 2.5 jumps next time)
    Nose ups, too tired.
    Took an ibuprofen for my elbow.

    Slept all night, a real treat. Musta been pretty tired. Last time I did that was my bike to office day.

    Bike to work day? Trying to collect on life insurance?
    I'm ok with "not safe"... I draw the line at "death wish".
    But maybe drivers are better there.
