    Thanks Fred!

    By early afternoon my right side was getting pretty sore, I assume from my 6am squats. Donít know what I did. Didnít hurt during squats.
    Sometimes I get sore then better, sometimes sore then worseÖ

    Anyway, for deadlifts at 3pm the soreness had set in real good. My last warmup double was 230, I only got one. Came up fine, but I didnít have the nerve to keep going.

    Summary
    Body 224.3
    Fat 28.4
    Squat 200 x 5,5,5 (light)
    Press 90 x 5,5,5,5,5 (back off)
    Deadlift 230 x 1 (failed warmup, sore)
    Nose ups, skipped

    Made my boys drag all the plates and bars back inside

    Well I was upping my squats to find when it would hurt too much. I was sure the heavy squats were the culprit. But after 215x3 still had some gas and didnít hurt too bad.
    Then I had to go pick up my son. Oooh, it hurts after, real nice. Yup maybe the squats.

    I did manage to put my plates away by myself. Then slept in the recliner.

    I need to learn how to see these things coming before they set me backÖ

    Oh well, each comeback sets a couple PRs, so thereís that.

    Was going to circle back to my bench and deadlifts, but who am I kidding, it hurts to turn the car steering wheel.
    Eat steak and go to bed (recliner) early.

    Yesterdayís deadlifts didnít bother me today, and I actually feel a little better.

    Todayís press didnít seem to bother anything.

    Still sleeping and napping in the recliner.

    Didnít seem to bother me.

    Took a nap in bed on my back, yes!

    Tomorrow Iíll try a whole workout at 50% squats and deadlift, close to normal on press and chins. Maybe.

    Body 222.8
    Fat 28.4
    Squat 115 x 5,5,5
    Press 92.5 x 3,3,3,3,3
    Deadlift 135 x 5
    Nose ups, skipped.

    This was not too bad, felt my back in the deadlifts some.

    Update, Thu 9-9. Was planning to work out. But my back/side seems to be getting a little worse. Iím not sure why. But I moved from the recliner to the bed. And in bed on my back, Iím fairly sore, but if I donít move at all, I can sleep. Maybe too soon?
    Iím going back to the recliner.
    Iíll see how I feel tomorrow or Saturday. I want to be holding my own, or a tiny bit better as I up my workout weights.

    Back from business trip last night.
    Did an empty bar ďworkoutĒ of the four lifts before bed. Side pain was maybe 2 out of 10, only getting up off the bench and top of deadlifts (65lbs).
    So that is real good.

    Plan now is to add 20 and 10 lbs to the big and little lifts each time, and hope the recovery stays ahead of the weights.

    Summary
    Thu 9-16-21
    Body forgot
    Fat forgot
    Squat bar x 5,5,5 (focusing on ďelbows inĒ which should cure my elbow pain on heavy squats. i.e. donít try to hold the bar up)
    Press jbar (22.5) x 5,5,5
    Bench jbar x 5,5,5
    Deadlift 65 x 5,5,5

    back/side soreness can be from so many things. I think I need a new pillow, as I'm getting a little sore neck at night...but that neck pain is also probably linked to commuting again back into NY 3 days per week on a bus. Fun times
