    Not bad considering I was in Austin Sunday and Monday visiting UT with my son and didn't get to bed until 2:00 (and up at 6:30) after a long flight back to Newark and ride home to Philly.

    My press reps have been declining last few weeks but 140 x 0 was not what I was expecting. Pigged out last night, short sleep and bad allergies probably didn't help but I may have psyched myself out as well. I knew something was off when the warm-ups felt heavy....Light bench felt nice and easy though. I seem to stall out as soon as I get past my one-plate (135) goal on the press. Going to re-focus on recovery (sleep & nutrition) and see where things are at.

    I had a knee wobble on the third squat rep so decided to leave it at that as 295 is an all-time high for me...Can't really sort out what's going on with my weight, sort of plateauing around 190 which might not be bad to recomp a little at this level as I'm still about ~23% BF and would like to come down from there in advance of the summer. Will keep an eye on it.

    Slow but steady progress on the bench...not sure why I'm not thrilled with where I'm at but probably should be more positive as all my lifts are in PR territory

    Squat PR! Wouldn't say it was easy but wasn't a terrible grind. I train fasted in the morning before work but today I added some dextrose to my water on the way to the gym and maybe it gave me a little extra boost?
