  • 385lbs: 2,2,2

Bench Press

  • 295lbs: X


  • X


  • Sharp shoulder pain in both shoulders. Began feeling it ever since I woke up. Couldn't even drive the bar up for the bench press. Next time take ibuprofen before training.
  • Felt some strange sensation on my lower right abdomen during squats, which was amplified during the bench press attempt. Skipped deadlifts just in case it was a hernia or something serious.

Ever since I started taking strength training seriously, I was bitten by the Iron Bug. Then it burrowed under my skin and laid eggs in my heart. Now those eggs are hatching and I... the feeling is indescribable.
