    8th Cycle - Week Three reps/sets

    Deadlift - 185 / 195kg *1, 170kg 3*2
    Cable Mid Row - 160lbs 12*3
    Revs Fly - 35lbs 15*4
    Single Leg Ext - 130kg 20*5
    GHR - bw 10*5

    After 67 trips around the sun, I'm pleased to say my body felt pretty good today, knees and back were happy.

    195kg moved nicely, a bit slow through the mid range, but strong off the floor and to lockout. Still working on coordinating bar, hips, and shoulders...but we're getting better.

    Long day with the bar in hand. Shoulders were tired, but not angry. Single was slow, but not in doubt.

    Gym was closed yesterday due to the snowmaggedon, so this week will be condensed Tu/W//Th/Sa. Shoveled a goodly bit of the white stuff yesterday #gpp

    Nice single at 145kg. Tempo Goblet Squats were, once again, cardio...

    At least John LaFlamme went into the Raw Masters 4 in the 83's

    Glacial improvement with this shoulder. Still feels off, but not painful.

    Signed up for a local USAPL meet that my gym is holding first week of April. This will be the longest I've gone without stepping on the platform since I started competing. Of course, the last time I did, things didn't go so well...I'm looking to change that!

    Obviously it all depends on if I'm able to maintain my current weight, if not get to 95kg. I'm cautiously optimistic, about this. Based on how my clothes are fitting, it seems like the extra lbs are hitting the Chest / Shoulders / Arms, and Thighs...can't say a little hasn't gone to the waist, but not enough to change a hole in the belt.

    Played some Doubles last night for the first time in weeks, the shoulder held up nicely.

    Tired coming into the gym, but managed to get through everything without too much trouble, though the Tempo work is brutal.
