    Its good to see a bench workout from you. Why are you tiring yourself before your heavy sets with all that other nonsense? Get warm and ****ing giver.

    185x4
    225x2
    275x5
    275x4
    275x4

    Felt decent since I haven't done squats for around 2 weeks.

    Sumo Deads:

    135x5
    225x4
    315x3
    365x3
    405x3

    Didn't like them at all, but felt my glutes and hips being worked which is what I wanted.

    Chins:

    +45x6
    +35x5
    +35x4

    Pull-throughs:

    100x6
    110x6
    110x6

    Did these with the bottom pulley. First time doing them so I wanted to get the form down. Really felt it in my glutes so hopefully I will see an improvement in my deadlift lockout if I continue with these.

    How come you are working sumo deads now? I thought you wanted to work your lockout.

    I hate sumos, i feel like my hips are getting ripped apart and theres no power off the floor.

    Thought I would do better on this but probably still recovering from the weekend binge drinking.

    CG Bench:

    Tri-Pushdown:

    85x10
    85x8

    At the end of the last set, felt my lower abs bulge out as if something burst inside. Very painful. Had to sit for a bit until the pain stopped and then i decided not to do another set just in case. Did some close grip pushups when I got home.

    Yea I have a feeling it might be a hernia. I think I might get it checked out. Did you have the same symptoms as me when yours happened?

    I wasn't lifting weights, i was moving floating dock with friends. I remember feelign like i hurt something, then i had some minor swelling and pain for a few weeks. It went down and i forgot about it.

    Doctor found it over a year ago now and said i need surgery. I don't feel it at all anymore so **** it.

    Pullups:

    BWx14
    BWx7
    BWx6
    BWx5 (terrible endurance haha)

    Went to the doctors yesterday and he said I had a protrusion at the time which led to a little tear in between the lower abs (he didn't use the word hernia) and that it should heal in 3-4 weeks if I'm careful.

    135x5
    155x3
    190x4
