The Tommy Kono sleeves are nice. I use the 2m Valeo redline wraps loose for training as well.

Thanks for the suggestion.  I will look those up.  Yeah, I'm thinking I might use them on the last weight in a workout, just to help make sure things are straight and secure.  I think back in the day the leg extension machine must have did some damage or something.

Today:

 

DBPress: 83# 10 x 7   < time to start condensing these down to 7 x 10

2HP:  119# x 10; 179# 4, 4, 5, 4, 5  < had a hard time with the surface with the weather, etc.  I think I need to clean & let it re-season.  Still, not a bad session.

Oh, I'm just going to do a quick rinse with some water to get the chalk build up & dirt off.  Then a spritz with some saline solution to sharpen the seasoning.  Daniel Reinard is a big fan of the saline solution for seasoning.  Aaron likes to do a straight water spray to revitalize the chalk, but I think I may have some build up.

I found with mine that doing reps on it ruins the seasoning quicker than just about anything. The more reps per set the quicker it is destroyed. Since I figured that out I stopped using the good area for reps and save that for the singles. That way I don't care so much if the the chalk buildup gets crummy from the reps. Just a tip.

Thanks for the insight Aaron!
