I don't know how you squat with a cold.  That's the one thing I need air on.

The sweating must be good for me I think.

Lazy days are perfect for busting out a new fun movement like those flips.

Probably a dangerous thing for my shoulders, too.

Didn’t really feel anything in my shoulders. Elbows a bit but they were already a tad niggly. Good for sweating while I’m so in proficient with the movement yet.

It does seem to be the most resistant aspect of grip to improvement. Certainly for me.

Ditto.  Especially axle.  Doesn't seem to matter what I do, my max tops out around 360 and laughs at me.

I think it may be a wrist strength issue for me. I look at the armwrestlers and guys that can do a lot on plate curls, and most seem to swing above their weight on thick bar.

Afternoon 
 
Week 2 of the bench assistance and a deload deads day mash-up. On a side note, going through my online journals I see a direct correlation between being at a lighter BW and having better thick bar and pinch numbers. Apparently my chubby mitts don’t help. 
 
Kept the weight down on the dumbbell presses to drill form. I’ve been doing a lot of dislocate work daily since last Saturday. I’ll hit some more now too as my shoulders are warmed up. 
 
Front Squat WU to 120k x 2 x 5r
Plate W 2.5k x 3 x 20r
 
Spoto Bench wu to 112.5k x 6 x 4r
DO Axle Dead wu to 288 x 3 x 1/2/2r
 
Seated DB Press w/o Support 50e x 3 x 10r
 
NG Chin Cluster 276.4 x 5-3-2-2=12r
