    Front Squat- 185x10 x3
    Leg Raise- 10 x3

    415x3 was a PR and I had more in the tank. Things are going well. **** Omni fitness center.

    That is why I refuse to give my money to any commercial gym.

    Bench- worked up to 250x7
    Hammer JM Press- 2ppsx10 x3
    Neutral DB Press, Slight Decline- 75x15 x3
    Pushdown, V-bar- 75x15 x3

    Bench sucked. I haven't had a bad bench workout in about 10 months and I got a deadlift PR last night so I'm not complaining at the moment. If this keeps happening in coming weeks, then we will have a problem, but not worried about it right now. Everything else went great.

    Yohimbine+low carb Monster+aspirin is awesome.

    I'm well aware that you are the best tugger around these parts, given your years of "experience".

    Box Squat- worked up to 235+100 lb chain for 8 sets of 2
    SSB Good Morning, Close Stance- 95x15 x2
    Ab Fallout- 15 x2
    Sissy Squat- 15 x2
    *Wheel Barrow- 50 yds x5 trips

    Chains continue to kick my ass, set them up a little higher like last week so I'd have to deal with more swinging at the top. Not much in the way of assistance work today because I'm taking a heavy single or double on Wednesday this week and want to be recovered.

    Squat- worked up to 405x1
    Snatch Pulls- 185x3 x5
    superset with:
    Situp- 20 x5

    405 was a PR without knee wraps.

    Commercial gym Hell story of the day:
    There's this fat teenager at the Gold's I train at who drives me up a wall. It's pretty obvious that he tries to emulate everything that he sees in the Animal Pak ads in his Muscle and Fiction magazines. Today he was walking around in a black hoodie with the hood up despite it being at least 80 degrees in the gym, so I'm going to call him Fat Pak. One of those talk to much, especially about stuff he doesn't have a clue about types. This kid decided to occupy the smith machine next to my rack and blabber on and on about powerlifting and "what powerlifters do". Pretty apparent that he doesn't know anything about powerlifting beyond what he read in the "What is Powerlifting?" page on BB.com. He finally turns his attention to someone else after I make it clear that I'm not really interested in talking to him. I hear him tell his new victim that he "just needs to get his arms bigger" because his chest and back are "developed enough already." Now, this guy easily has an A cup and is probably north of 30% bodyfat. He holds up his skintight underarmor covered arm and says "Yeah bro, I've got a 48 inch chest but my arms are only 16 inches!" This was so funny that I had to walk over to the training room for a minute to regain my composure. This guy says and does ******ed **** on a pretty regular basis so I'm sure I'll have more Fat Pak stories in the future.

    That's way too much text to be one paragraph. I read it, but if you do that again, I'm not going to.

    I like to think of my squat as more of a power curtsy. And I like to make a point to let people know that. What does that make me?

    I said "how deep", not "how not deep". You're good.

    I don't want them back. You can keep them.

    Not bad for someone that didn't really feel like benching today.
