      • It is summer! And today I was in the pool with my kids throwing them and playing for two hours!! Didn't feel like working out at all, but I am fatigued. Not weak, I have energy, but aware that I was really active for 120 minutes!!!

        • Squatted 225 for 5 (5,4,4) for the first time. My weakest lift, so it was great to make that.

            Trying to match this will now be the sort of "anchor exercise" in my workout today. I got 3x3 with this weight last time around without too much of a struggle. Thanks for the inspiration, tfarny.

            Next I'll either put the bar on the floor and add a plate for a 1x5 (if I have enough left in me) deadlifts or keep it on the rack and lose a plate for a few sets of good mornings. I do like to be efficient in the squat rack.

            Not sure what else. Depends on what equipment the AC Slaters aren't fouling up with their bare midriffs and overly scant tank tops. Definitely pull-ups. Been doing more transverse-plane rows lately (I think? Bent-over rows and inverted rows.). Man, I hate pull-ups.

                Maybe it was the fire tfarny lit under my ass, or maybe it was having taken a co-worker out to lunch when I am used to training in a fasted state, but I got all 3 sets of 5 squats with 225#.

                Then I did 3x10 of good mornings with 135#

                Then 3 sets of 7 muscle-ups

                45# dumbbells military press (seated) 6,6,4 with excellent scapular rotation (focusing more on ROM/mobility than strength on this right now)

                3 sets of 8 curls (I NEVER do curls) with a 50# straight bar, with Fat Gripz. I can tell you my forearms are ROCKED. Typing hurts right now. For serious.

                Lots of stretching and steak for dinner!

                  Sweet dude! Should I mock you regularly to help with your workouts or something?

                    Yes! At least until I hit my summertime 1RM goals (200 bench, 300 squat, 400 deadlift). Thanks.

                              Straight Ellyptical (elevation 7, resistance 4, s/m 200) 60:00

                              Supposed to be a rest day today, but did alot of furniture moving yesterday, along with my workout, and was feeling pretty tight. Felt that a long, slow cardio would loosen my up.

                              • Active recovery (foam rolling, hot / cold plunges, warmup weights) instead of nailing PRs. Cause I'm burned out today.
