Decided to try on my singlet today for my workout for the first time......weird.

I think dropping down to pin 1 on the rack pulls is going to have better carryover to my regular pulls. It equates to a 7" lift and feels like it's right around where my sticking point is. The 495 reps were also feeling much tougher than they should've. Prior to the 3rd set I put some talc on my thighs and that made one helluva difference! The weight flew up.

I thought it was the talc but as I'm writing this maybe not; my thumb-pads are super smooth right now. It was making it difficult on my last two axle sets. I even went and washed my hands and reapplied chalk but it seems that I've just wore the texture right off.
