Yep. Plus, my muscle gain is total crap when I'm fat, so I'm hoping getting thin will help.

I'm going to take it easy this week, and see how it goes.

Shoulder has been stable but not better for a while. Co-incidentally, I've not be hitting it as hard.

OHS: 105#x8, 85x8, 65x20, 75x20

Hopefully that got the blood flowing.

You been doing any sort of shoulder packing stuff? Like TGU or half TGU's?

Is there still pain or is it just weak and unstable?

Sore, although snatches definitely are a no no. I'll mix in some TGUs and overhead walks for sure. Feels much better after the OHS; just needs some blood flow.

dropped to 181# today.

One # in a day, so some pretty severe glycogen depletion. I either need to carb up bigger every 4 days, or go back to every 3 days. Weight dropping off my thighs before my lower abs. Frustrating male patterning.

Took another lighter day:

cl: up to 180#
bs: triples up to 225x3, 235x1
chins

What is your lean mass / weight / BF% goal?

10% BF. Would like to be at 85kg at 10%; that would involve lean mass gain of about 8 lbs. Ideally, I'd like to be back at 94kg but at 10%; that would involve some serious lean mass. It's the right weight for my height, but perhaps not for my age.

I am going to be in Vacaville and San Jose next Wednesday for meetings. I don't know how far you are from either place. Let me know if you want to get together.
