    I’m not a doctor and have no medical education, but when I’ve hurt my back moving in some way helped a lot. If you can just move and put it through a range of motion it’ll heal more quickly I think.

    Yea, I'm just doing some walking right now because I don't think there's much else I can do. I'll get moving as much as I can as things start to feel a little better.

    So after having some of the hernia pain flashbacks, I decided to take it easy on doing squats and deadlifts for a few weeks until that pain went away. I was feeling okay on Saturday, so decided to give deadlifts a go for the first time in like a month and a half. I went easy doing 135 lbs 3x10, but it was still a shock to the system just doing any deadlifts period. The next day I felt a little tight and a little sore, but nothing I thought would be a problem. I played tennis Sunday afternoon assuming my back would loosen up throughout the match and I would feel good after.

    In the second game, I bent over to take a forehand and my muscles just seized up on me. :tebow:

    seems like the problem is Tennis, not deadlifts.

    Staying cautious, but feeling good. 4 weeks out so the heavy singles have started. All the goals are still in play, just focusing on technique.

    How’s your deadlift been going? I know you’re cruising past that 227.5 squat for sure. That may be a second

    Yeah, I'm planning on 501 being my 2nd attempt.

    Shooting for 550 on deadlift. Hit 523 (I think) for a double a few weeks ago.

    That’s right. I remember you telling me that now. 550 is definitely reasonable.

    Hit 180x2 OHP, PR was 175

    Was wearing sleeves, not sure how much of a difference it made. Quite confident I had at least 1 in me raw.

    Millennial bodybuilders are some weird cats, man.

    There were 3 young dudes in the locker room today loudly taking about their feelings, girls, some soft ass Dr Phil shit. Mind you there are regular working adults in there just minding their business during a lunch time workout. One guy has an entire rollerboard carry-on suitcase filled with gear. I’m talking camera with tripod, all his lifting gear, 3 bottles of preworkout/ protein whatever, and is just splayed out in the middle of the locker room. He’s got his dop kit and probably $300 in gym outfits in there. Fucking weird shit man. I got undressed, took a shower and put my work clothes back on before he could finish whatever the hell he was doing.

    /end rant

    Just the whole scene man. Absurd behavior in my opinion. A checked bag full of shit into the locker room and no regard for your surroundings. This guy wasn’t even big! And they were probably out of college if I had to guess

    I’d be weirded out by the roids too. If they were chatting amongst themselves about females I don’t think that’s weird in it of itself. Unless it’s obnoxiously loud- which I’m sure you’re saying. That stuff gets annoying. Had a group of bros one time hogging the squat rack to talk about girls they are meeting on tinder. That’s irritating.

    3 weeks from today. I’m having to move some of my training days around because the next couple weeks have some travel, but it shouldn’t mess with me too much. I’ll need to find a gym in Austin but there are a couple close to the Airbnb we are staying at.

    Have 475 programmed for next week. That should help me decide on my opener.

    Feel that I'm a pretty ideal gym member. Don't bother anyone, don't make loud noises or do stupid shit, always put weights back and pick up after myself, even fix shit when other people are lazy. I dared to do kettle bench bench today and head personal trainer gave it to me. Going there for years and got the most condescending "that is not what they are designed for" and a few things after that. I'll get over it but pissed me off pretty good. Definitely team home gym when I get a bigger space, have a nice setup but no room for a rack.

    Been working up in Albany NY. Had to get some work in. Found Albany Strength. $5 drop ins.

    It's a dump. And the plates and bars are a mess. But it's an iron gym and it's awesome. 1 month of Lifetime is more than a 1 year membership there. I'm thinking of signing up for the hell of it.
