my back cramped up every set pretty much and felt pretty tweaked by the end. must be dehydrated still from the weekend. was planning on doing squats today too but i figured nothing good would come from it with the way my back felt.

here's a video of todays bench. my pauses were almost non existent on some reps then the others it was non existent. but i'm alright with it, 330x4 is a pr for me and i tried to pretend i was in college again this weekend.
