What do you think of the new Metallica? I like their new song-don't know the name and saw a clip of their new movie which looks odd and as hard as usual.

I was never much of a punk, but I love Bad Religion and Henry Rollins. they both come to Salt Lake every year, and I never fail to miss their shows. someday!

I'm glad you're with group of folks that share your idea of good times, and know you from back when.

Today

time to start adding some real lifting in. joints are feeling better, my stress level is to the point with my life changes the more time in the gym the better. I still plan to focus on adding some quality size before I really start dieting, so to do that I need to train a variety of rep ranges but also start adding in some of the hard stuff again. tonight was my first time pulling from the floor in about 6 months. actually pretty much my only time doing any pulling

raw conv deadlift 145 x 5, 235/325/415/505/555 x 3. good starting point, still had some in the tank but don't want to start this shift in cycle pursuing prs and then tearing something, lol, I honestly thing 605 x 3 would have been possible but why? best I think I hit was 655 x 3, for pr triples

lever pulldown 3 warms ups then 5 x 8-10 w/ 380

db rows 4 x 10 w/130s

csr 4 x 10 w 3 plates, put long stretch, held contraction, long negative

db shrugs 3 x 15
ghr 3 x 15

yes, I was back in a pl gym, doing bb crap for the most part lol
