You will need new pants when you are done.
Heck yeah! I'm lovin' it already in a very sick way. I hope to need new pants

Gym temp: 46 F (I really focus on WARM ups)

musical motivation:

Today was a little tough on the legs, as it was the 3rd day in a row of squating, plus I had lots of sets in between squats which effect how much air I'm sucking when I start squating. The DB Bench and Chins both felt real good. I averaged about 2.5 to 3 minutes between squat sets.

I should mention that I got a belt for Christmas. But I don't plan on using it unless I am going over 90%. I will try to remember to mark beside my lifts if I use a belt. I didn't use a belt on yesterday's Deadlift or today's Squat because they were at 90% and not above it.

For anyone just logging in, I am trying to do Smolov Jr. for my Bench and Chin-ups. It is a grueling thing to add into Smolov for Squats, but I am feeling crazy right now.

Well, I am off to Princeton NJ for three days. I have no squats scheduled for the next three days. Smolov calls for lunges with bodyweight, easy enough to do in a hotel room. See you guys Tuesday.
