  4. Just did some flossing with mine after the deep front squats aggravated it. Works like a charm. I'm going to be flossing everything I can from here on out.

  6. Super excited for you!!!!!!! Almost time!

  7. 7/26

    I tried to do my mock warm-up for the meet, but called it after 225. My head is elsewhere today and I was already drained going into the gym. Once I took 225 and it felt like 315, I knew that it would be best to call it as I have nothing to gain by pushing at this moment. What I did do, however, was spend about 45 minutes rolling out and doing band traction to at least make it worth the trip to the gym. Physically, I feel pretty good; my knee is still a tad tender, but good, shoulders are solid, minor lumbar tightness, and my hips feel good. I'll auto-regulate Sunday, but I'll at least put the gear on to see how it feels. My weight is floating between 222-225 and I won't have to cut much, if any, weight next Friday.

  8. 7/28

    I did my meet mock for squat today and switched suits back to my old Ace 52 w/ the hips pinched. I felt so much more stable and had great speed (I worked up to ~565) out of the hole and went straps up just to get a feel. I didn't quite hit depth at that weight, but it's ~50lbs lighter than my opener and that won't be an issue at the meet. My knee is feeling good, but not great and I made sure to have Alex wrap the **** out of it.

    I didn't think I went that heavy or too high of an intensity and then I noticed this:

    The knee is feeling better. I brought out the floss band to play around with it and it really helped to get some blood into the area. I felt some slight popping that was relieving as well. The training itself was pretty low of the intensity scale and I mainly wanted to get some blood flowing as I'm not going to get any stronger over the next two weeks. I'm supposed to pull tomorrow, but that is not happening. I might do some core work at home, but not going to touch a barbell.

    Gear note: this is extremely late in the training, but I might have to switch my suit. The one I have now is too big (needs to be pinched) in the hips and I'm not getting much support at the bottom. It'll still be an Ace suit, though. I'm going to try it on over the briefs to see if I can comfortably (relatively speaking) get the suit into position.

    Jim. are you all registered for the meet?
    Dunno how I missed this. Yeah, I sent it all in a few weeks back.

    My APF registration card should have already been mailed out, I just have to check the mailbox. If it doesn't make it before Saturday (which would be surprising) ill just have to pay when I get there.

    I spoke to his wife to make sure I was registered for the meet, so I atleast know that's done.

    What could he do for the whole APF registration thing?
