  • 405lbs: 3,3
    • I noticed the bar had a noticeable bend after my first set. After the second set, I checked the other bars in the gym that I regularly use, and they were all slightly bent. I don't recall seeing this when I first started training at this gym...


  • 215lbs: 2,2,X
  • 205lbs: 1
    • My presses were lopsided for some reason. Left arm was higher than my right arm, and my body was leaning in one direction. This made my back feel strange. I didn't hurt, just felt weird.


  • Skipped - I didn't want to aggravate this strange feeling I was having in my back from doing overhead presses.

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.
