Good question...since you loaned out your book, Pity...it is originally intended to be bench pin press with the starting point a few inches above your chest.

No. No blocks. They don't allow me to deadlift off the floor completely in my gym because I "lift too heavy" so I folded two Yoga mats and used them as cushions between the plates and the floor. The yoga mat completely folds in. I was worried that I would be doing these off a block like rack deadlifts but even with the Yoga mats the bar is barely 1 inch off the floor. Add to that the 45 lbs plates in my gym here are smaller than the bumper plates I use at Trinity.

Exactly, Eric. It was supposed to be a few inches off the chest. But since I am doing Military Presses instead of the Bench, I used the same principle and set the bar a few inches off my clavicle. It's at this weird point where the bar is just at my nose (or rather my lower forehead).

Beginning Thoughts:
Been eating good food today. 4 meals down so far. 2 more to go. Each meal has approximately 150 grams of protein. I dunno the carbs and fats...However, I am eating roughly 8 slices of bread total and 3 t-spoons of peanut butter.
Workout:
Did some Floor Presses with 185 and worked up from 185 to 205x2. It was pretty hard stuff. I did some rows and Push-ups, facepulls, etc...Nothing exciting today.
Overall Impression:
Once I am done with Maximum Strength I am going to make changes to the way in which I approach upper body training. I am gonna dedicate one of my two upper body days into more volume work. I plan on using Dips, Push-ups and Dumbbell Press variations in future cycles.

Cheers, y'all!
