Back is almost back to normal and only gives a little twinge at odd times.

When I was done there was this guy who looked like a semi-serious lifter hanging around. He was wearing those barefoot shoes, but also spandex pants. Which are okay for straight men to wear in a number of instances. For example: speedskating, and um… well there’s…hmm. Anyhow, I told him that I was done with the rack and he said: “Oh, I can’t do front squats with free weights yet.” This puzzled me, and I considered asking if he was injured. But I thought better of it, nodded gravely, put my headphones back on, and carried on. I noticed that he went up to 185 lbs on the Smith Machine.
Push Press: 45×8, 95×3, 135×2, 185×1, 205×1, 225×1, CM 232.5×1; 185×2, 190×2, 4x195x2, 2x185x3 (18)
Deadlift: I reminded myself before each super-light set that I am not a specially different robot. Then did 30 reps of singles, doubles & triples with up to 235 lbs. This is what happens when you don’t follow good advice from smarter people. You have to regress to a baby weight. Afterwards, my back felt awesome. And tomorrow I will do it again, a little heavier.
