Re: What do you do when you are tired?

Suck it up.

I've just finished a week with extremely poor sleep each night, bad food and some stress, and I hit 3 PR's yesterday.

It's all in the mind!

Re: Scale or continue as is???

Re: Need help with My Brother.

Don't give up on him, just gear down on him. He's a free individual (and a free individual that's 15!). He won't respond well to pressure, probable will even become in opposition.

I recommend that...

Re: Dumbells?

I'd say stick with the dumbells for a while. They actually aren't too silly when it comes to things like cleans, clean & presses/jerks and are ok for front squats aswell. You can deadlift with them...
