I think I'm going back to my ME/DE split for the lower body. It seemed to be working better for me.

Comments: Haven't been to the Capital area in a while. +2 hour drive to train is a bit annoying but Jerry had just done a contest the day before so I went to Barry's. He had been at the same contest and tore his bicep on the last event. Sucks. Started out with circus dumbbell work. CT is 200lbs for reps, I had to see where I was at now. The dumbbell Barry has is a monster; 14" diameter bells and a 3.5" thick handle. Incredibly awkward. I managed to get a little over the most I've done on a 14" bell. Tried 198lbs about 10 times each side. Had to change how I cleaned it up wasn't too close with my right, pretty close with my left. Got a lot of work ahead of me. Moved on to yoke/frame medleys. Warm-ups felt good, I think the roughly 200lbs jump in each implement was a bit of a shock though. Yoke was pretty horrid that first run, almost made the frame tough. Felt much better with how the second run went. Husafell took a bit of time since I had to scrounge around for stuff to put in it for more weight. Camera didn't catch my good run. Hopefully I can turn things around for May.
