Hmm I know what u mean. Uncertainty and doubt shouldn’t really be in your head when you’re going for lifts ideally. Not missing it at least. Maybe unsure of how well a weight will move. Personally I need to know the weights to judge how they move compared to previously or on average as part of the training process but I have seen some people play around with disguising the weight on the bar with garbage bags and shit. Something to be said for that.
I mean, I kinda know, but intentionally don’t do the math. I usually know “This many wheels plus X last time”, so the same number of wheels plus Y this time. Having 100’s throws me off a little, I was shocked to realize I had gone for over 600 twice. In the back of my mind it was 585, which is a totally different animal. But if I had got it, fireworks when I do the math.

Got interrupted by a surprise phone call that I had to take, took way too long. It was dark and my shoulders were cold by the time it ended.
135 x 3 in front 3 BTN
That was it. Shoulders were not going to cooperate so I called it.

Was not feeling it today, hamstrings were cranky before I even started. Chickened out on the full extra wheel because I was feeling old and weak. So I settle for this this week.
Nice progression on the deads HA. Love the “off the floor” raw lifting.
Y r we hypnotizing chickens
It’s a line stolen directly from “Lust For Life”
is that an old person thing lool?
Ouch. Probably. I think it is meant to represent doing something totally pointless, like hypnotizing chickens say.
Meh life is pointless so may as well do some funny shit.
Flyes, on the deck cause still have no bench
40 x 10 x 4 sets
DB Floor Press
76 x 12 x 3 sets
I could reallt do with something heavier for both of these. I’m going to have to figure something out.
What do you have now?
Get a few 2x4’s and easy to slap to together a strong bench. What I used when I was 12.
I have 40’s and 75’s. and a single 55. So, either I make a huge jump on the flyes, or I look for more DB’s. I am losing appetite for equipment aquisition, because I am hopeful that one of these days I can actually fly back to Central America and life in my own apartment. Living on the road gets old.
@hel320 knows what I’m talking about I’m pretty sure.

Could you find a couple of chains and add them to your dumbell flys ??
I’m thinking of giving it a go with plates instead of DB’s. I’m wondering how hard 45lb bumpers would be?
