    For Dl, kept my word to myself and stayed light.
    Same weight as last week, but so much better.
    Was tempted to do a heavier single, but stood pat.
    Quads w/ 280 still felt heavy, but not like last week.

    AAANND, we're back.
    6 weeks post surgery was Monday of this week (24th) , but i started doing empty bar squats last week.


    Friday Feb 28th 2020
    ~ MM C1 W1 D3 - Strength day bench 3 times a week, so i'm going "all heavy".
    Toying with the idea of shifting over to a Hepburn singles approach much later, after these sets are weight/volume PRs for me.
    I'll see how it goes. i may like this way and just throw in more singles closer to meets.

    I've tried increased volume, 4 days a week, DUP, and have been stuck for a long time as regards 1RM.
    This is something i haven't tried.

    This is day three of my first full week back on MM.

    Thought i would pull 355 day before yesterday, and it slapped me down.
    Knocked 20lbs off and got 335 for my first heavy single in 3 1/2 months.
    The five sets of four with 280 were surprisingly heavy as well.

    Just really tired today.
    Short sleep, and heavy snow removal yesterday.
    Like, SGDL was not at all heavy, but still, yuck.

    Time to practice limitation and humility. I have my first doctor appt. tomorrow, and, providing my self diagnosis is correct, hope to have the inguinal hernia repair scheduled in the near future.
    I dialed back the third single to 205, (217.5 shown) and will take my percentages down to match the ground I've lost after taking 9 days off bench.
    I think I will also be more open to doing less, or at least giving myself the option to do less, and just maintain bench until my physical and emotional status improves.
    Gonna just binge watch something with my wife today.
