Double over hand thick bar deadlift
to 170-kilos x 3 x 3 r/p reps. Slower off the floor I'd like. Usual lack of lower back oomph holding me back.

One of my favorite sandwiches is with cheese, a medium boiled egg that's sliced and spread over the sandwich, and with mayo on top.

Hi Martin, not 100%. Locally and indeed regionally a lot of have had the same infection and many are the same - not quite back to normal. I've STILL got a feeling of a block left ear (inner ear or sinus issue). My part time day job has me outside in the cold wet and windy weather we currently have. Which doesn't help full recovery.
I'm easing back into the harder weights for my body parts and killing it on the grip ha ha.
That sandwich sounds good but with what we call 'brown sauce' (slightly spicy) to add a little zest.

Have I trained... damn right I have. HUGE MAJOR STRESSES right now. My youngest brother, with a history of health issues from systemic abuse (drug and alcohol related in the past) has been unwell one way or another for sometime. However, this past week saw him critically ill. I wont list it all right now suffice to say we had two 'get down here now' (last chance etc) calls from his hospital. I live 4 plus hours away so the rest of the gang has been doing their best. Monday saw me training the Vulcan as I was driven from Wales to London - in the car, chalk and paper across my lap. Training has often proven to be a great distraction and thus it was so.
A bonus was the JB grippers arriving. Beasts!! I can barely chest close the F in a way that enables me to get my hand on the extensions to do grip work - I'll need to work on that.
L/H: 5/6 x 6 x VVN and then 5/5 x 4 x 1 reps
R/H: 6/7 x 6 x VVN and then 6/6 x 4 x 1 reps
Considering it was all done in a car not too bad.
to 340-kilos x 4 reps
to 480-kilos x 8 easy reps
to 170-kilos x 3 x 5 reps (4 x 5 next time)

I'd added a large hose clamp to the F (JBF = 126 lbs. & 266 lbs. Ratings by Joe M) but removed it - it felt in the way. Much faffing, sapping energy wise, found a workable setting method. Pics on FB. So...
Iso Press (Dale in rack)
to 60-kilos a side x 4 and x 5 reps. DS 20-kilos a side x 15 rep
Hammer DC Curls
to 50-kilos @ x 7 reps
to 13+1 stacker plate x 8 reps
JB Gripper work
Best effort was 6 reps r/h and a couple of brutal negatives.
