    Thanks Fred! Thanks Jerry!
    I think Adam’s coaching is really helping. Before I was making progress but getting injured (pulled back muscle or something).
    He said weak back, more deadlifting sets. I would’ve never tried that.

    Press 122.5* x 1,2,1 (sb 3,3,3) and 115 x 2,3 (sb 3,3) this was a fail wreck, but Adam and I wanted to give it one more chance before moving to singles. And hey, a PR is a PR and never ugly.

    Left knee’s been hurting for several days. Something from few years back that comes and goes. I think sleeping on my right side aggravates it.
    Funny I’m limping up stairs and around the kitchen. But I can still squat and deadlift once I get set in position. Anyway last time it flared up, I slept in the recliner with a pillow under it and took long walks. I’ll try that again.

    Also my back’s been aching just by my right shoulder blade, my old nemesis. Has been slowly getting worse over the last couple weeks.
    So Adam backed off my squats some to let it recover. Which worked last time.

    Knee feeling better. Adam backed off my squats, Wife giving me collagen, and I’m not sleeping on my side, not about to limit variables just to know which.

    Will hike my hill in the morning. Did not, did better last week when it hurt the whole way. This morning it only hurt when I stepped funny - that I couldn’t take.

    starting strength coach development program
    Today marks one year from my start of SS.
    Lots of pros. Lower back never hurts anymore, feet don’t hurt anymore, BP med doesn’t make me dizzy anymore, all the stuff noted before.

    Hired an SSOC about halfway in… that’s helped a lot.

    I started from nothing really, never having lifted before. So far my PRs are 122.5, 152.5, 245, 302.5.
