    Awesome work yesterday. The way you looked Friday moving didn't think you should even attempt to train, but you kicked ass. Last set of squat wasn't even close to a grind, think you had some left. Great push, hope you're just about settled. And hopefully nothing effects us.

    1.4.09 ME Bench
    Been having problems with my nose exploding lately. Seems about this time every year, my CPAP dries out my nose and I'm prone to nosebleeds. Bad ones. Really bad. I need to remember to put Vaseline in my nostrils before bed. That lead to me having a problem with blood first coming out and pooling in my eye. Then, I plugged my nose and it went down the back, causing me to gag. So overall, I didn't get done what I wanted to tonight.

    135x10
    225x8
    315x5
    425x3
    1-Board
    500x1

    2-Board
    605x1 (Nose exploded into my eye)

    Things get WAY fuzzy here.....
    Full Range?
    675x1 (Choked on some blood)

    705x1 Missed second rep (Got out of line at bottom and spotters took it)

    3-Board
    765x3 (VERY easy and I felt great. Really happy but I need to start TOUCHING)

    Too bad about the nose explosion. Looked hardcore though I bet.
    This is the true joy in life, the being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one; the being thoroughly worn out before you are thrown on the scrap heap; the being a force of Nature instead of a feverish selfish little clod of ailments and grievances complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy - George Bernard Shaw

    LOL it probably looked pretty badass yeah but I'd rather have had a better workout. I was really happy with the 765x3 but I need to start touching more consistently.

    I have that same problem, but maybe not as bad...haha!!! Just the other day, I scratched my nose and all of a sudden it started bleeding. The good thing is I never had it happen during a workout. But other then that, good job with the 765x3!!!

    Hey Tone. If the woman is being a bitch about chalk you could try the liquid chalk from elite. It's pretty cheap. http://www.flexcart.com/members/elit...d=114&pid=1008

    ME Squat Day
    Another bad day. Really tired of frustrating myself and my partners. Whatever it is that's broken in my head has been fixed in the bench but for some reason I can't find that same part of me in the squat. It comes and goes. Last week, in just briefs, I did 765x2 and 815x1 with reverse bands. This week I added the suit, got pinned with 840, and only managed 825 with reverse bands.

    Relax buddy. New week coming. Some guy once told me not to put myself worth in to this sport. Not sure what he meant but might help you. Squat will come around fine. You've been moving for 2 or 3 weeks now, unpacking every night, got alot going on. The stress will get the best of you from time to time.
    So relax and enjoy training. You've told me a number of times you could see doing anything else!

    Tone, I do hope you catch that groove with your squat mate.

    Well, after thinking about it, all the work I've done trying to fix things and there is only one thing left to try. Doing LESS. I'm cutting my training down to 3 days a week. Heavy days on Mon (Bench), and Sat (Squat) and an accessory or possibly heavy deadlift day on Wed. I've given my squat training over to my partners. They make the calls, I just do. I am going to try to work through my issues on autopilot and let them guide me.
