I knew going in to last night’s workout (delts/traps/calves) that it was going to be great! I was feeling exceptionally good in the hour leading up to my workout, and I thoroughly enjoyed every second that I was in the gym. I broke my all-time personal record for dumbbell presses, adding 10 pounds (5 per dumbbell) over last week’s weight; I even did more reps than I did last week! Then I broke my all-time personal best lateral dumbbell raises record by performing more reps than I’ve ever done with the heaviest weight I’ve ever used. Next week I’ll move up to a weight I’ve never been able to do for at least 10 reps. I also went up 10 pounds (5 per dumbbell) on my bent over lateral raises, breaking yet another personal best record. I added 50 pounds to my shrugs, because I didn’t feel like unloading the bar from my deadlifts that I did on Tuesday. I did a few less reps than last week, but the extra heavy weight was very satisfying. By the time I got to my calves, I couldn’t really lift my arms, so I’m glad I had preloaded the vertical press with the weight I needed. That was easily my most satisfying shoulder workout ever. This is probably the strongest I’ve ever been in my life. I’m feeling very happy right now because there is still a lot of time left in this year’s bulk.

There is a new update to the forum software that I’m going to install this morning. This is a fairly minor release, just a few minor bug fixes and tweaks. It should be a very fast upgrade, so I’m going to go ahead and do it this morning. If you are reading this after 9:00 AM EDT, then the upgrade is already done. You early birds can expect about 20 minutes of downtime starting sometime before 8:00 AM.

For those of you following the datacenter flooding drama, we hope to have permanent power restored today. For more information and updates please check this thread.
