    If ypu want to see some REAL inspirational lifting, head over to Eddy Coan's Instagram. If his latest post DOESN'T leave you speechless and watching it over again in disbelief, then you need to have your head examined....
    Eddy, the GOAT, posted a vid of him doing deficit deads. With 500 lbs. Raw. No belt. For a triple. He's in his 50s and has had BOTH hips replaced! Arguably one of the most inspiring training vids I've ever seen!

    Update. On the way out of the gym today I stopped and talked to management about yesterday's situation. I told them that we were not happy about being drawn into it, as we were not involved. It was all on him. The manager told me that they no problem with us but can hear him at the front desk.

    The problem was not so much the staff but they were get a number of complaints from members that they considered lifters. Also, they have seen him do "gravity check" and felt the he was abusing the equipment. Lastly, he was acting like a child that was warned not to do some but dose it out of spite.

    He is on the edge and some of the staff want him gone.

    Ugh. After everything that happened yesterday I was surprised to see that kid again today, as he told us all yesterday he was gone for good. WELL...today his story is he won't give them the satisfaction of leaving, that he's here to stay and if they want him gone they'll have to revoke his membership. Much as I'd miss the savage atmosphere without him, he's an accident waiting to happen, he's giving the other lifters in our gym a bad name, and I'm glad the staff is on alert with him. I suspect he'll try to push the envelope once more because he just can't resist, and they'll ask him to leave for good.

    I don't think he will last. They are looking for an excuse.

    75 x 5
    95 x 5
    115 x 5
    135 x 3
    145 x 3

    Next weekend I have to miss both Saturday AND Sunday due to swim championships on both days. Toying with the idea of skipping my light lower body day on Thursday and doing heavy squats/deads. Just gonna see how the early part of the week goes.

    Bar left a nifty mark on my back after squats LOL. Looks pretty gnarly up close and personal. Pic is probably a little grainy by the time you zoom in on the right rear delt. Left rear delt is pretty much healed up.

    Tuesday 7/18 just some squats n deads

    All THREE kids in tow today, with the big kid pacing the floor for me to get done. Ugh.

    dynamic warmup

    Squats:
    bar x 5
    75 x 5
    95 x 5
    115 x 5
    135 x 4
    145 x 4
    4 x 150 x 4 - up 6# from the last few weeks. Moved sssssllllllooooowww but that might be because I rushed my warmup

    Sumo deads:
    135 x 1
    155 x 1
    175 x 1
    195 x 1
    8 x 202 x 1 - with 45 sec between pulls. Can't say this felt easy. Had a hard time sitting back. Still got it done but again, I believe it was due to rushing my warmup

    Unilateral standing calves:
    5 x BW x 5/leg with 5-sec hold at top and 3-sec hold at bottom, no rest between sides/sets

    30 min walk
