I was hoping for a 385 squat this week and I nailed it. Then I hit a nice triple deadlift at 450. To top it all off, I had an epic 'Glute Off' battle with Bret Contreras. It was a good week.
I saw the surgeon this week about my bicep. In the gym, I did a lot of experimenting, trying to see how far I could push my limits in spite of the injury. Turns out I can still do quite a bit!
I started out 2013 with what could be a major setback, but I am also achieving a major breakthrough with my grip, and my rehab work is still going strong.
I finished my third week of rehab this week, and things are still going great. I've leaned out quite a bit and noted pretty big improvements from my lifts last week.
I'm in my second week of rehab and it's going better than it ever has in the past. Although I may not be squatting heavy yet, I'm slowly getting back to normal after my injury on December 1st.
This was a productive training week. My squat is getting deeper and I'm feeling fresh as a daisy thanks to some dietary changes I've made.
After my meet I couldn't even sit down on the couch without feeling extreme pain. After a week of rehab, I'm not quite back to my normal self, but I'm getting there.

I got in some training early in the week, and then flew out to Las Vegas to watch some of my team members compete. One of them had the highest total at the event!
