At my gym they have a 1000 lb Club if you can combine two lifts for over a 1000 lbs you get a shirt. Exercise choices are dead lift, squat, leg press, and bench. Leg press is the obvious choice to take a big bite out of the 1k. They have some 125lb dumbbells so I'm going to see if they let me bench those for a total of 250 and then leg press 750 to get a shirt. Not impressive but something to do, why not...

I plan on updating my log today, but just some quick notes. Since my shoulder had been giving me problems my pressing strength has gone way down. I believe my reasons are that I backed off severely on heavy pressing and changed my form a bit. I also eliminated certain exercises that may be prone to cause problems later in life. Its hard to tell though, I do pushups before my pressing exercises and that usually takes some energy out of me. 5 sets of 5 with the 80s on a slight incline isn't where I use to be. I also revisited dips and was barely able to rep out 5 sets of 10-12 reps... but I got an amazing pump in my chest, best I've had in a long time.

I've been pretty stressed lately, getting the waterpark ready for summer has been keeping at work for long hours so my sleep has suffered some.

My low back has been giving me consistent minor pain throughout the week that doesn't seem to heal and my knees are the same ever since I started squatting. I'm not sure if I will continue to do load bearing squats or not... we'll see. Other than that, my workouts have been shorter but intense and I hope to get my schedule straightened out soon enough so I can focus more on training and get some longer workouts in.

It's great that you're aware of stresses on your mind and body. People ignore those things at their own peril.

I also have trouble sleeping sometimes. But I found a good tip in <i>The Thrive Diet</i> that I've been using the last few nights, to good effect. It's pretty simple: spend the last half hour or so before bed in dim light or darkness, to give the brain time to start producing melatonin. Do some deep breathing, listen to calming music, just chill. I find it's a lot easier to sleep after that than when I go right from the computer to bed.

Hey Troy,

Do you ever incorporate dynamic warm-ups?

They can help to prevent injuries.

Just a thought...

Hey my man,

How are you? I hope to see you this summer in WI! I'm working on making a trip out there....not "for sure" but working on it for sometime in early August.

All the best!
