Not at our regular place as Brian was selfish and did something with his family. How dare he? Erik Eggers was really cool as usual and opened up his facility Beast Training in Trumbull, CT for us. If I ever owned a place myself it would be very much like Beast.
I gotta say, I was not feeling it. My nutrition and hydration has been off all week. Anyway, got work in. Thumbs from the smooth is a close grip for me. Definitely out of my comfort zone, but good for lockout strength. So 495 did not feel easy. I wanted to make sure to get 2 more lifts in so I just added 5 each set. Pretty whimpy, but effective.
Got the rest of assistance in and felt pretty beat. The tri ext were kind of an extension JM hybrid, whatever. Used the tempo thing on the ol' guns. Nice!
