    Low Bar Squats - 112.5kg *6
    LBS - 102.5kg 6*2
    Belt Squats (3-0-0) - 65kg 8*3

    For having played six hard games of Doubles Squash last night, my knee was in fine shape today: no swelling, no pain.. I had good force production through both legs tonight.

    This cycle will be one to watch. By the end of it, if all goes well, I'll be back to 2019 training levels...wouldn't that be nice.

    Yeah, this bruhaha between the IPF and the USAPL is forcing a decision on a number of my coach's athletes. It looks like most all of us will go over to the new federation.

    And that means planning to compete in mid March for their "National Championships".

    Not sure what's next, things are afoot that will dictate where we go from here.

    5th Cycle / Week Four - reps/sets

    Bench - 82.5kg *7
    Bench - 72.5kg 8*2
    Close Grip - 70kg 6*3
    Dumbbell Incline Bench (0-0-3) - 50lbs 10*3
    Overhead Tri Ext - 26kg 10*3
    Dips - bw 10*3
    IYT - 10lbs 10*3

    Missed the top set, was looking for 8. Still, it might be a rep PR...I've got to dig out my logs from 2019.

    Spent enough energy on the top set to have to dial back everything else today. Week Four is proving to be "challenging".

    What great news, Chas. Your commitment to training in the face of all this is really impressive. And 115 kg for 8 reps is nothing to sneeze at.
    Thanks Tim.

    Fortunately, all my bloodwork came back with good news...my PSA numbers continue to drop, and the folks at the Roswell Park are pleased with the trend...so am I.

    5th Cycle / Week Four - reps/sets

    Low Bar - 115kg *8
    Low Bar - 100kg 8*2
    Belt Squats - 60kg 10*5
    TRX Mid Row - 20*3
    Planks - 60sec *3

    What a long day...

    Had my 18 month check up to see how the cancer treatments have addressed the issue at hand. To say I've been anxious is a gross understatement. The last week...the last 48 hours have been damn near unbearable.

    Fortunately, all my bloodwork came back with good news...my PSA numbers continue to drop, and the folks at the Roswell Park are pleased with the trend...so am I. But I'm mentally fatigued.

    Wanted to hit 120kg for 8 on the top set, but I couldn't marshal the mental fortitude to get under that weight for eight reps. On video review, it appears it was there for the taking.

    I'm so glad I'm past today!

    5th Cycle / Week Three reps/sets

    Low Bar Squats - 110kg *8, 90kg *8
    Belt Squats - 55kg 10*5
    Single Leg RDL - 36kg 12*3
    Trx Mid Row - 20*3
    Planks - 60sec *3
    Leg Ext - 130kg 20*3
    Squat Jumps - bw 5*3
    Leg Ext (0-2-0) - 130kg 10*3

    After undergoing an acupuncture session on Friday, and laying low all weekend, I seem to be "ok".

    Squats were surprisingly strong, no back issues to speak of (no knee issues either).

    Maybe what took place was my body revolting one last time...just for the hell of it. Seriously, all of a sudden my knee seems to be almost normal in appearance and function, my strength and endurance is substantially better, and if I hadn't been such a knucklehead, my back would be close to "normal" too.

    Bench Wednesday, and we'll see on Thursday just what I can pull from what position!?!?
