    Another good workout day. (Knock on wood)

    Still working my high bar to low bar flexibility. Still using the tubow.

    I think Iím setting my lower back better in deadlifts. The cue that seems to work for me is to give the neighbors the same view their cat gives me. Which also helps lighten my mood for the set.

    And maybe another at bedtime so I can get some good rest.

    Well, how I know is I don't STAY "numb."
    How you really feel, just hit me in the funny bone. Remember being young enough you couldn't conceive of back pain?
    I wasn't making fun of you.

    Oh no, not at all. All good.
    Yup those were the days.
    Now I look down and see a scratch or bruise and say, howíd that happen.
    Or in the middle of the day notice an ache, and wonder what in the world I did to tweak that.

    Default 60 yr old Day One

    So today marks my second month.
    This month brought further gains, additional daily side benefits (some unexpected). And also my first stall.

    I continued jumping 10lb each on my squats and deadlifts. The squats got to 165 by grinding every rep of the 3x5, even the first. And this was pre TUBOW, so my lower back was complaining most sets.
    Deadlifts suffered as well.
    So I reset both to 80% and 5lb jumps. So far this is doing good.

    Daily side effects, benefits really:
    I can sleep on my back without my bony shoulder blades making my arms go to sleep.
    My legs donít go to sleep reading on the toilet any more. A 30 year thing, gone. Poof, all better.
    My heals donít bother me barefoot anymore. Another 30 year thing. I wore cowboy boots on the concrete flight line one summer, my heals had hurt ever since. I wore slippers in the house, took slippers to friends houses. All so my heals wouldnít kill me.
    20 years ago I stepped in a hole running to catch a softball. My thigh hurt so much I thought Iíd barf. Ever since it has been kinda numb/tingly if I stood still too long. So I would sit or pace around. (Iíve had an MRI/CAT scan, whatever. No spine issues). Anyway, that is better too. To be sure I stood through all the long, long prayers at church, singing too. All good.
    I can touch my toes!! I havenít been able to do this since at least 20 years.

    This is life changing stuff! No really.
    Some Iím not surprised, theyíre obviously due to getting more muscle. But touch my toes? I havenít been stretching, just doing my deadlifts. Who knew?
    My heals? I donít know. Maybe theyíre getting used to more weight, so just me is nothing? Or maybe Iím standing less on my heals and more on the ball of my foot? Maybe that.

    So now Iím convert 2.0
