    yet again i got told not to "drop the weights"...might not be able to deadlift at that gym much longer, we'll see. the annoying part is the gym employee tapped on my shoulder at rep 3, who does that? anyway, finished the set for a PR, woot.

    haven't logged recently, on thursday i think it was i tried to bench and my left shoulder, more specifically front delt or maybe rotator cuff felt really bad and weak so i didnt want to **** it up, stopped at 185 warm up set. then didnt lift till today due to sore back/legs. (excuses)

    squat
    135/5
    185/4
    225/3
    265/2
    285/4 PR (was going for 3, got 4, going to get 5 next time)
    295/2 PR

    first time repping > 275, so felt good and i think i can do more.

    What's up man? Some pretty good work in here. I loled about the guy who was telling you to hurry up and bench a few sets back. If anyone told me to do that at my gym I would been like "chill the fuk out" haha.

    pissed off that i lifted like such a pussy, but i'm going to blame it on not sleeping enough and lifting at my school gym (which i despise). i usually go to 24 hr which allows for more pre-set raging and grunting.

    just stopped after the 2nd failure and left, no point in blasting my legs with reps when they wont even be good. going to rest up and try again but this time do a 305 first to build confidence.
