    p.s. i like the idea of ice bath after heavy squat. sounds pretty smart to get all the swelling out.
    Thanks Tim it's been rough but well worth it lately. I'm thinking about getting a blow up kiddie pool or one of those plastic ones and filling it with ice and water. I think it'll help with recovery and will feel great in this hot weather.

    Your strength on the prowler really amazes me I just couldn't keep up with these old man hip.

    Keep up on the raw work you are looking better than ever.
    Thanks alot Mike! You've been giving me a good push on the raw squats and it's definitely showing. Haha the Prowler was killer!!! It really hits the hips nice and the quads high. Which are spots I don't usually feel. Hopefully the weather stays nice so we don't get killed in insane heat the rest of the summer.

    Good day, first time fully suited since my meet back in february and I felt pretty good. Worked up to 90lbs off my best meet squat and it went up nicely. My CNS definitely needs some time to adjust, that's for sure. All the raw squatting has seemed to be helping. Going to work up over the next few weeks and see if I can get back up to 750+ before I start training for my meet in November.

    Good bench night I've really been happy with getting in 2 different pressing movements. Dropped a board as well and got comfortable about half way through the work out. Next week I'll drop to a 1board and see how that goes. The weight felt heavy as **** gotta get the CNS up to par.

    500 is not too far off, you should have that before the end of the year.

    Another fun Thursday. Seems like I'm growing a cist on my left wrist. Good news is that it doesn't hurt while I'm lifting, but there is discomfort whenever I'm not lifting. My doctor has no appointments left this week, so next week I'll be making an appointment to see if they can drain it or something. No intentions of letting it slow me down.

    So it turns out it is a gangliated (sp?) cist on my left wrist. They drained it today, now I just have to see if it comes back or not.

    That's was it for saturday. Had a 30lb PR in the briefs which really made me happy but it was a rough day. My wrist is really causing me problems, I couldn't wrap my thumb around the bar which made squatting a bit nerve wrecking. I had to call deadlifts short because of the pain. I go back to the doctor on friday, hopefully he has a soultion other then to try and drain it again.

    You're raw squat numbers are crazy man, talk about making progress in leaps and bounds.

    Glad to see things are going well for the most part, hopefully that cyst clears up soon and you'll be good to go.

    The old-school remedy for Ganglion cysts is called Bible therapy, where you just take a book and smash it haha Glad you went to the doc's for it though.
    Don't asker for a light load, but a strong back.
