    What the fuck is this? Some kind of a ritualized mating dance you've got prepared for me?

    Fuck off.

    Nah man it was totally my fault. Did very little warming up. The weight was only 197.5 for 6x6. I’ve done 5x5 with 235 before. I should have taken into account that I hadn’t pressed in 2 weeks before jumping right into it.

    Monday I did 6x6 with 190 and today (Day 2) I've got 7x5 with 202.5 coming up.

    My warmup was pretty much the same per the Bulgarian method. Did doubles and singles until I reached my working sets.

    Day 2 of Smolov this week. 435x5 and then 8x3 with 315 to a 12 inch box for dynamic work. I figure if my upper back was fucked, what could help more than mashing it with a loaded barbell? I’ve been pain free since.

    Day 3. 465x5 squat and then 7 sets of 5 on the press with 212.5. Worked over 60 hours this week so this last session was brutal.

    I’ll say a few prayers for you.

    Folks, I'll be embarking on a social media/internet diet in order to tend to my work and other matters that require my urgent attention. I'll be checking in this thread once in a while in the not-too-distant future to update my progress, but for now I'll have to log off and let myself adjust slowly to a life free of technological distractions.


    Good luck on your progress, gentlemen, and I wish you the best of luck. I hope to see you guys stronger and kicking major ass six months from now.

    Adieu!

    380 for 4 Sets of 9 reps today on the squat. No grinders but the pump after each set was debilitating.
