RETURNING to the standard barbell for the next 3 weeks is causing some weakness while I adjust. The session tonight trailed off into more discussion with the group and I couldn't be bothered sticking around for pinwheelz. No big loss there.

I've been eating like a pig since the comp ended, with burgers and ice cream, and indian desserts (I've recently re-discovered a dish called gulaab jamun, which I now crave weekly and are definitely NOT Paleo) so I may well be closer to 130 kgs bodyweight now. I haven't checked since the morning of the comp. I weighed 126.5 kgs / 279 lbs then. So close to my desired weight now! And I'm not sacrificing anything in terms of my progression; things have been going well, on the whole. I need to step things up between now and late July, though, when the second round of qualifiers will be held.

Bring it on.
