    Done...A pretty good day today. I stopped at 9 reps because I got out of groove pretty bad and my first thought was to rack it, so I did. I'm going to start listing my working sets only and leave out my warm-ups. I have 24 more weeks to get my shit together, and hopefully hit a PR total and leave the meet with a new American record.

    Yeah, it feels pretty good. My only concern since i'm benching with a closer grip is the rep work. Once they start to fatigue, i'm going to stop. I'm not going to push through it, because it's not a good feeling.

    Done...A pretty good day today. I haven't squatted and pulled in the same session in a long time, so it might take some getting use to again, but I love it!!!!

    I was hoping for at least two more on the deads, but for some reason I thought if I let go of the bar on my 6th rep that I can bang out two more....NOPE! I attempted twice to bend down and actually grip the bar, but something in my gut said to just stop and I did. I'm trying to train smart and listen to my body more, which is something I should of been doing a long time ago, lol.

    Also, today is momma Hopper's birthday, so I wanna give her a shout out...Happy Birthday mom, love ya!!!!

    Happy birthday to your mum, bud!

    And good call on listening to the gut - it's always when you ignore those little feelings that something goes pop, haha!

    Finished off by pulling the prowler for 1 trip @ 200ft with 1pps and 2 trips @ 200ft with 2pps.

    Thanks Gaz! I think I might of went a little too light. But it's ok, I'll make up for it next week.

    Also, I got some Pre-Workout from AtLarge today and i'm going to start using it next week. I'll use it for the entire week of training and i'll post a review. I'm sure it's going to be a bad ass supplement, really looking forward to it.

    I need to learn how to do this when an 'extra' day of training presents itself. Get in, get some stuff done, get out.

    It's not really an extra day of training. Instead of training today like I normally would, I had to do it yesterday. But I should be able to train tomorrow which is my normal day. It will be lower accessory work, and I plan on going to Gold's Gym for that!
