[Lifting Log] Uncle Josh Gets Back to Maintenance

I have lost count of the number of times I restarted my lifting program this year. It seems lately I just go out to the garage and do a set of presses just to get the blood pumping, but not to gain anything. It’s more like maintenance. And I’m okay with maintaining the strength I have as long as my weight keeps dropping.

Tonight I did a 215# squat, 120# press, 120# row, and a 165# deadlift. My left knee has been the bane of my squats all year, and it felt tweaky on my very last rep. Stretching is the only cure.

I may get a chance Thursday to lift again, and definitely on Saturday, but that’s a long time between lifts.
