Sometimes the discouraging days are where you prompt the most response from your muscles!

On the multiple inputs, my coach recommends only one person giving you input. As you say, otherwise it's very distracting. Maybe you can find the most expert guy and ask him to corral the others.

Yoon
Squats go up. It's cool how that works. Thanks for all the beef.
I hope Smith gets the meet together, and I hope it's the 24th. It will be good to get a comp in before the Sablo, and it will be good if it gets us 3 weeks after to taper, and it will be good if we know ahead to we can plan around it.
Too much advice is trouble. Lately Savas has been around more, and I like his advice, but then, I haven't been getting bombarded (though I did a little at the end last night, when Jeff and Lenny double teamed me).

Elliot:
I agree. When I have a total flop of a workout (or any day for that matter), I tend to work extra hard to make something positive of it...either by getting a better feel for a movement, learning something new, or getting a PR.

I should also mention that a national level lifter showed up and was lifting on the platform behind me. That gave me a bit of extra motivation on the front squats

John:
Yeah, glad you liked the beef-in-a-cup. I'll see what meeting leftovers I can find for Wednesday and will hopefully remember to bring tupperware as opposed to using dixie cups! Man, we must have looked really attractive slurping down long strips of beef without utensils.

If Chris doesn't hold another meet, we should definitely have a simulated comp. Maybe devote one platform for warmup and one for the lifts.

Yeah, I'm not entirely sure about the 1800.

I do check in to refresh on my notes from any given day. Aside from me and my fellow PMers, my suspicions are:
-my friends to whom I've forwarded the log
-my enemies, who are hoping I fold into 2 pieces under a bad lift
-perhaps a bit of 'Vote for the Worst' action going on... http://www.votefortheworst.com/
