I finished the workout with a 30 rep set of dips.
I have several observations. First of all I almost had 11 reps at 315 on flat bench. Yes I know almost does not count. However, I have not even come close in over a year. Additionally I was on about five hours of sleep due to the little ones. And my back is only about 80% due to stupid lifting on Friday. I feel confident I will get it next week. If nothing else, saying I will get it will shame me into pushing harder. My last set of 315 on flat bench improved from seven to eight reps. One rep is very significant when you are as close to your limit as I am.
I also improved by one rep on two of my sets of incline dumbells. Once again this is significant given that I am an experienced lifter. Progress is hard to come by at this point.
I'm still hungry as hell!!!!!!!!
Day 11 report. I trained quads and hamstrings yesterday. My workout essentially looked identical to last weeks training session. My back is still not completely recovered.
Anyway, I really don't plan on using my leg day as a means of charting my progress. I have bad knees to go along with back issues. This really prevents me from increasing weight to any significant degree. tomorrow is back and tri's. I will report back then. Oh I woke up in the middle of the night so hungry it was almos intolerable. My appetite continues to . I have to resorted to chips and ice cream to address the issue.
If i missed it above.... sorry: Have you had recurring back problems?

Have you heard about N.O. Uptake? ;-)
Caution is always good. I have the same philosophy..I could be bigger but I like being able to walk.

My strength is up!! My biggest indicator is my impovement on dumbell presses. See the comparison I made above between this week and last week on dumbell presses. It may not seem like a huge improvement. But given my level of experience, even subtle improvements are tough to come by. Great workout, great pump
