THERE were some great new personal records broken tonight. I'm actually really tempted to enter a Powerlifting comp sometime - after my campaign for ASM this year is over. If I can just get my hip back to normal and tweak my squat just right, I can probably get somewhere in the region of 220/150/285 Squat Bench Deadlift. Right now. Not bad.

My new wrist wraps from Gripped Fitness equipment really came in handy; my last pair are worn out, the thumb loops both broken. The Gripped wraps are longer, thicker and more hard-wearing than my last pair, with plenty of velcro, so they should last.

Finished with as many reps as I could manage on the right. That was an interesting pump. The session started with some apprehension, as my shoulder really feels like shit when it's cold, and takes a bit to warm up. Once I got there though, there was no real pain or weakness. Everything went well.
