Tests and Measures practical exam went relatively well this morning.  Now it's time to make sure I'm ready for my Differential Diagnosis practical tomorrow afternoon.  Training today went well and I wasn't trying to hit any big rep number on deads, but I would have kept going if I had been aware of how many reps I had actually done on my final work set.  I thought I was around 6 reps or so, but I actually ended up doing 9, which I only discovered because I took video of it to see how I am progressing.  I attribute my poor counting skills to filling my brain to the brim with PT info the last several days.








9x500 - I felt good for at least 12 here.

2x10x430 - I was planning on a minimum of 3 sets here, but had some slight stupidity going on in the area of my left trap (leftover from benching on Monday) and decided to stop after 2 sets.  I should note it was very minor and the only reason I let it change my plan for the day was because I have a competition in a week and a half, which historically magnifies my chances of doing something stupid exponentially.
