    It's been a long/hard week. Definitely felt it today. The bench work was very tough, everything felt heavy and slow. I still managed to hit all the prescribed sets/reps. After that my body wanted nothing to do with deadlifts.

    Played softball yesterday morning and did a lot of running. Today my legs were really sore so I didn't expect much. My warmups felt strong though so I decided to go for a PR. My technique was a little sloppy for me, but I still managed to do a strong set. This is my projected opener and I owned it on a day I didn't feel 100%. Just under 6 weeks to go.

    Had to do bench sessions on back to back days because of how my schedule worked this week. Not ideal, but I still made all my reps.

    Felt like crap but grinded through it. Gaglione Strength had a booth setup and we had some strength demonstrations. I was happy to be a part of it for my team and do an exhibition lift.

    Felt beat up coming in from this weekend, but I cant train tomorrow so I pushed my squat even after a full bnch workout. I think fresh at the meet I should be good for 555 -560 on a third attempt.

    I have been lazy updating, but I was training hard going into the meet. I came into the meet a little lighter than planned and it was a rough one to get through with the heat, but I still managed a few PR's so I can't cvomplain too much. Still have a long way to go to where I think I should be @181.
