2 weeks ago i pulled my left quad doing bb lunges. i tried doing no weight lunges and still feel very light pain in left quad. hence the reason why i wont be doing lunges till then.
chest: felt like complete crap. i ate one meal that day so that could've been a factor.
flat bench: worked up to 1rm and finished with 225lbx5
decline bench: 3x8
incline bench: 2x6
chest press machine: 2x15

after my last deadlift set, my lowerback went in pain. specifically the left hand area nearby my left love handle. i think it might be due to overtraining my back, needing 1-2 week rest, and/or something is wrong. ill be visiting a doc if it doesnt feel better within 48hrs. ill be taking a 7 day vacation from lifting since i havent had one in couple months. so i wont be posting in my log cause talking about cardio and ab work is lame. plus, finals is comming up so i got more time to study =D
ok i lied and couldnt wait the last 2 days of the break. i read an article by lee priest where he said he wasnt a firm believer in taking long periods of time off from lifting but took days off when his body felt like it. which makes sense to some exempt.
