This was a boatload of work and it felt great. I love training! It was good jumping back in with heavy weight. My conditioning and recovery must be pretty good considering I competely less than a week ago. The 800 in the 62 Jack was coming in perfectly, but then it got a little squirrelly in the bottom so I just told them to take it.

I am really getting tired of tight shirts f'ing with my groove. That's why I jumped into my 64 Ace. I just wanted to move weights (Plus I need to have a loose shirt for the Last Man Standing Bench Contest in Lancaster, PA in July). All of the sets felt awesome. I hovered a hair from touching on the 700 and 750. I just don't need to snug the shirt down at all in the future for those weights. I was pleasantly surprised how well I benched in a shirt I have not worn in years. Plus I have not been in a shirt in almost 6 months.

I have watched guys put shirts on for years that take a team of lifters to help them get on. So I always feel like the fact I can get a shirt on with just a little tug, the shirt must be fine. Man, last night was liberating. The 64 slid on and off without any help. I was really able to groove in the shirt. I was much more technically proficient when I wore bigger shirts. Hence why I am getting a 64 Metal Jack. That's also the reason I did not fight with the 800 in the 62. I alredy knew what the next step would be.

My plan early in the evening was to just play in the shirts and then call it quits. However, I was feeling too good to do that. So I went along for the whole ride.

I really like the new program that we have worked up. I can't wait to run it through its course. I feel confident it will yield the results I am looking for.
