It must be summer once again, because Relationship of Command started playing in my head once again.

One thing I've noticed is I tend to thread a lot of my posts. Partially to fit more content, and partially to organize posts by related topic. Is that what most others do? I get the sense it isn't as common but I'm not sure.

Workout 

Worked up to 2x10 @ RPE 8 on these.

Squats: 225lbs (felt right on target RPE wise)
OHO: 115lbs (was push more like RPE 9.5 at the end, but got it!)

These higher volume sets are killer! Could never be a body builder lol.

@everlifting Ha, he loves running, but prefers to *watch* lifting LOL

Parenting, Food 

I used to worry too, but then I read something on one of the major medical websites that, paraphrased, said "your child will eat when they're hungry and not when they aren't. Save for some extreme medical condition, they will never let themselves starve."

This makes so much sense to me it feels absurd to have thought anything else otherwise.

So, offer them lots of food options and often! Also, trust them to know what they want. Don't beat yourself up over amount of food eaten.

Parenting, Food 

People are strongly opinionated about parenting in general, but in my experience get especially weird about food. As in, they see an amount a child eats and decides it's right or wrong. I think it's from a good place. They want the kids to be well fed and healthy. It just seems to be hard to judge though.

Networking Tech Question 

I've got a Netgear Nighthawk router. It's been good for a while but recently has started to have connectivity issues where the entire router sometimes stops responding until a physical reboot or will sometimes eventually recovers on its own.

Any suggestions for a better setup?

Fitness 

Welp, powered through the main lifts but called it on the accessories tonight. Was getting way too sloppy and exhausted at the end.

Overall not great but better than I thought given my state. Deadlifts 2x6 @ 265lbs, and Push Press 2x6 @ 155lbs.

A terrible night of sleep and a full belly for this session are not adding up well! Hanging in there though.

Deadlifts, Push Press up to 2x6 @ RPE 8 each, then some accessories.

Fitness content creators hate this! 

If you're just starting to try deliberate physical activity, are mostly casual about it, or enjoy doing more than one activity suboptimally, good news - that's fine!

That's right, you heard it here first. You can just do whatever you want!

Bored of cycling? Go lift weights for a week!
Like strongman and long distance running? Great! Do both, gains be damned.
Not focused enough to be the best at one team spot? Congrats on understanding yourself!

Weight lifting 

I can tell on #deadlifts and rack pulls when I didn't emphasize the lock out properly because my knee hurts (very mildly) afterward. Been good for a while now but got careless today.

Seems like I lock my knees naturally, whereas if I focus on lock out using my hips and glutes my knees don't hurt at all.

Handy little guide on #stretching mainly focused on #powerlifting here. everlifting.com/books/minimal-. I'm already doing some of the dynamic stretches, but could use more, and really need to add in static ones after workouts.

Thanks to @everlifting for the write up!

Planning on eventually working in Zercher squats into my workout. They look fun but also like you're out of control while doing so. Can't wait!

For self hosted blogging platforms, what options are there? I know of WriteFreely, WordPress, and Ghost. I like WriteFreely and use it now, but I find the interface on Firefox mobile isn't very good, and I'd like image handling out of the box.
