Thanks Arian, I appreciate the kind words and that you took the time to find my manifesto and repost it!
Rereading the manifesto lets me know that I've been mostly on track. Not hitting occlusion much lately, but on the flip side, leg volume has been up drastically with daily squatting/deadlifting and I walk my dog 5 to 6 days a week now instead of only 2-3 (my wife's foot is hurt and she can't walk him).
Weight gain is slightly behind where I'd like to be, but quality over quantity at this point, not going to get sloppy 5 weeks before my contest diet.
Great job hitting your goals early! Time to smash new ones.
Knees hurting a bit, I guess they are taking a slight beating from squatting 17 times in the last 17 days.
DB Bench 75 (last set did 8 reps)
OH Press 127.5
BWx10, 5 sets
