Nice PR. You're definitely stronger at the lighter weight, which is definitely way cool.

Thanks -- weighed in this morning at 187 exactly, which is 20# off the weight I was last time I hit anything near that max.

Two funny stories.

1) To visualize the squatting position I wanted, I started each single saying "Pisarenko"



2) When I re-racked the bar, I tore off my belt and threw it to the ground in triumph, but aimed a bit too high, and the metal buckle swung 'round and knocked out one of my windowpanes.

Monday.
sn: up to 140#, had 145# overhead a couple of times but lost it forward and back with soft elbows.
c&j: up to 165#
bs: up to 245#, 255#(f), 220#x3, x2
press: up to 120#, down to 95#x3x2
The 120# is embarrassingly a PR.

Getting chunky again. October will be a LG weight loss month.

Or not -- seems to have corrected itself. I have some travel coming up end of October, so perhaps I'll do a few weeks of LG around then.
Saturday:
sn pull + sn from block: up to 115x2, sn pull from block: 125#x4x2
sn: 130#, 135#, 140#, 145# nearly took my head off
bkn j: up to 165#x2x5
