Took 3 Super Cissus Rx last night, 2 ibuprofin, two fish oil, and did a warm epsom salts soak. 3 Cissus, 2 fish oil, and 2 ibu this morning. Feels a ton better already. We'll see how it does with squats tonight.

Thanks guys. Still some form issues to work out, but I'm getting there.

Elbow isn't feeling much better. Shoveling all the snow today didn't help it much. I may just have to play through the pain. Resting it isn't helping.

Decided to put the knee sleeves on my elbows to keep them warm and do some benching. No spotter, so i didn't push it.

barX20

95X10

135X5

225X9 (might have had 1 more in me, but wasn't going to risk it)

135X25 (same here. Left a couple in the tank)

As long as I didn't squeeze the bar too hard, the elbow didn't kill me.

Did a killer back workout today followed by squats:

Back:

60 minutes of shoveling the car out from under the 3' of snow the blizzard dumped on it.

Then Squats (didn't push weight as my back was already tired from the shoveling. Just worked on getting back & getting deep. These felt much better as i wore my orthotics with the oly shoes. I had gotten used to wearing the orthotics when I was squatting in my boots. Really seemed to help my balance.):

barX10

135X8

165X8

225X3

225X3

225X3

Snowed in by the blizzard so I did some ME and DE benching at home.

Bench:

barX15

135X8

185X5

235X1

275X1 (This felt really light. Much easier than last time. Definitely getting stronger.)

280Xmiss (Had I done this instead of the 275 it would have went easy. Didn't wait long enough either.)

DE (Used Chris Dutton's bands - 90lbs at bottom/180lbs at top):

65+bandsX3

95+bandsX3

135+bandsX3

Nice work Mike! Gaining the confidence will get you to 3 plates easily!! Those speed workouts will help a ton also! Give it a couple more weeks on those, and next week don't do any flat bench. Switch it up to 3 board presses or floor presses to mix it up!

Great job!

Thanks Chris and Manthos! Squats are definitely helping me feel stronger overall and Chris has helped a lot with my bench. Maybe someday i won't be the weakest person on the board. :laugh:help
