    Youíre right Cheesepuff, my route uses sleepy neighborhood streets, sidewalks, sneak through the factory parking lot, and one length of wide shoulder on a busy road. No traffic intersections, nor do I use bike lanes - no sandwich between parked cars and traffic for meÖ

    Good workout day

    Iím may be being too aggressive trying to narrow my squat grip. I can feel it in my left elbow after heavier sets. Nothing one ibuprofen canít solve for now, but my elbowís talking to me lately.

    Yes Bingley, if I keep my ring finger on the outer knurl gap, my pinkie touches my (cheep narrow) rack. So I have to rack carefully to not mash a finger, but my elbow likes that much better. I was getting too aggressive narrowing my grip.
    (How is it that I can be a lazy procrastinator, and be impatient too??)

    Weekends are turning into eat what I want days. Weekdays Iím doing my best to choke down 250g protein and now Iím adding about 280g carbs too. Plus a salad of some kind.

    Good workout day

    I had to chuckle because that's me as well.

    Good workout day

    For squats, kept my hands wide and tried to bend my wrists less set by set. My elbow liked that a lot better.

    AM deadlifts donít seem to bother me during the day, but I feel pretty spent for my PM workout. But itís how I can be sure to get the whole workout done weekdays.
    Too spent for nose ups, just dragging all the plates back inside was plenty.

    (Mid right back muscle was sore that evening and today, not too bad)

    I once bought Daughter a tshirt that said "Hard work pays off tomorrow. Procrastination pays off today"

    Bingley, I love that!

    Back still a bit sore, note to self.
    Deadlifts in the AM do make my PM workout quite a bit more tiring.

    Also my (hook grip) thumb can squirm some on the final reps.
    Question, when do folks start using chalk? I just ordered some.

    Presses were really close on each 5th rep. Next time I may do 4x4 or drop the jumps to 1.5lbÖ (I should eat more)

    That's how I've been doing it too. I can only handle Florida summers in my garage gym in pieces, even with the door open and fan on. I sometimes even split it into three sessions on weekends which are days off work for me.
