    Coming in, I wasn't sure if I'd be able to bench, since I wouldn't have a spotter. But I got lucky and someone was there to hand off for me, so that rocked. I think I'm starting to get my bench strength back, so maybe by the end of the semester, I'll take another stab at 400.

    Also, yesterday, I went to the Illini basketball game and they disappointed yet again. Can't say that I'm surprised, but it would be awesome if they at least tried once in a while.

    I haven't squatted in a long time... took weeks off. So I wasn't sure whether to deload like I've been doing with everything else. I decided to go moderately heavy and it felt alright. Then went to Texas Roadhouse and some gooood food. I won't be able to get that when I move to Austin, that's for sure.

    Also, thesis due to my professor Wednesday morning. Time to enter panic mode.

    575lbsx15 TRICEP PULLDOWN!!!!!!!! WOW!!! Kidding, typo I know. Awesome work though man, bench looks good, 275x11 is sweet stuff. Good job turning in that thesis too. I'm a few weeks ahead in my class work but I've slowly been chipping away to keep ahead. Hopefully it'll stay that way. None the less, awesome work out bud.

    Man, I *wish* I could do 575 on the tricep pulldown. That would probably give me the world record.

    And good job keeping ahead. I find that the as soon I get behind, it's nearly impossible to catch back up. So just staying on top of things is 90% of the battle.

    Comments:
    I really hate doing deadlifts for reps. Anything more than a double really sucks, haha. I guess it's the only way to get better at deadlifting though. The last two were fast off the floor, but took a long time to lock out. Lockouts have been my problem for roughly... 4 years, so no surprise there.

    Everything felt pretty good today. It's so hard to go to work in the morning when it's so nice out, though! I just wanna go outside all day.

    So, today was fun. I'm starting to wonder why my squat has barely progressed in the past four years. And why my knees hurt all the time. I think the two might be correlated. I also think lunges make my knees hurt - not sure how to test out this theory though.

    After the gym, went to Texas Roadhouse with Royce and had a good time as always. It's starting to get real hard thinking about moving though... getting a little depressed about leaving Champaign behind.

    Nothing really special about today. Just got in, did some presses, BS'd with some people, and left. Now, time to enjoy a nice big fat juicy steak.

    Comments:
    Well... I've changed up my form on deadlift since I was thinking it would help my lockout. Then I get to 606 and can't get it past my knees with the "new form." However, I decide to give it another go about a minute later and go back to my "old form" of dive-bombing to the bar, and gripping and ripping. I locked it out, but I've got to wonder how I should actually be deadlifting.

    Oh well. After the gym, I had a super burger covered in fries and cheddar cheese. And saw Kick-Ass. Man, what a good night.
