    (That was it. Had to hurry straight after work and lift so I could make it to the PTC meeting at children's school. On a good note the hips are feeling a lot better so I decided to test it a little and very little hip pain, but I can still feel my right leg trying to overcompensate for my left. So I am gonna up the unilateral work on legs a bit. On a bad note the hips are getting better but now my knees are aching lol. I jumped off the fork truck today at work and my left knee popped and it's been aching a little ever since.)

    Yeah it's pretty convenient when I am pressed for time or if my gas is running low and I don't feel like driving to the gym lol. Oh yeah I have a homemade squat box that I got someone to weld for me too.

    Even though I don't box squat much, if I do, I'll stack up my blocks that I use for block pulls and some mats. You're right though, it's super convenient. I just bought a leg press/hack squat machine a couple weeks ago. My only problem is space. I have everything on one side of my 2 car garage and my deadlift platform in the back. Now I need to find a team to lift with me.

    Yeah I got a few guys I lift with at the gym. No one besides me lifts here at the house so it's kind of a pain in the ass if I am wanting to get into gear and want to go heavy. If I gear up or anything I go to the gym so I'll have help. And usually it's a toss up if they are there or not.

    Thanks , Yeah I normally can get that weight, but my lifts are in the shitter right now. But they seem to be steadily improving week by week. I'm also switching to a 3 day routine due to the way I'm working now to allow more recovery time. 4 days seem to be breaking me down to bad during the week.

    Mon- Squats, legs
    Wed- Bench, Shoulders, triceps
    Fri- Deadlifts, Back, biceps
    abs all 3 days
