Feeling quite toasted from "Michael" on Thursday. Perhaps I should have listened to myself and kept to the whole half volume thing for the first month. In any event, I have decided to alternate speed DL w/ heavy DL efforts for my LOD as I have already found it hard to really grind them out heavy at least once every 5-6 days.

Very happy with the PR in BS. I actually met someone at my gym who noticed me doing FS and we started talking. Turns out he used to be a powerlifter and does some strong man stuff now. I mentioned how I was having problems w/ my BS and he offerred to help me out. He understands that I am not going for a PL style BS. It turns out that my problem was (1) I was too afraid to really lean forward which I need to due my particular aglopamofics(SP?) and (2) I was slightly favoring my right side coming out of the hole which is something I just couldn't see when teaching myself. The result, no pain in my right hip (although I could really feel the proper hip drive this time) and a new PR.
