Havn't posted in a while because I have been busy with school. Did bench Stuff worked up to 405 off a 3 board for 3 sets.
Deads: did the same band and chain set up as last week, but went with 4 plates and 5 chains for the last set. Pulled it for a single (it was probably a stingy 750 at the very top)

Spud and I went down to Florida to help Mike, Karl, and Berry out at the worlds.
Karl and Mike did well. Berry had issues on the squat, but was a good sport and helped me and Spud handle Karl and Mike. The highlight of the trip was when I got to smack the hell out of mike before his second bench. He didn't see it coming.......and like a shotgun blast I tattooed him right in the upper back. If he wasn't already psyched up to lift it would have knocked him out. From there on out he said no more slapping.....imagine that. I got to meet a lot of nice people that I have only seen in pictures and heard stories about. It was a humbling and fun experience. It is easy to get comfortable with your nitch in your own gym and be satisfied with a little progress you make. Then you venture out into the land of the big people and realize you need to train a little harder until you feel satisfied with mediocre progress. It was a great experience.
