    Glad to hear you are good to go with the meet. That was massive squatting and benching (with plenty in the tank by the looks of it)

    I honestly don't remember any nagging injurys while I was training in gear. Not like I do now, lol. I didn't feel really beat up either.
    Thats what I thought you would say
    This is the true joy in life, the being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one; the being thoroughly worn out before you are thrown on the scrap heap; the being a force of Nature instead of a feverish selfish little clod of ailments and grievances complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy - George Bernard Shaw

    Thanks April...let's hope I have a good day As long as my right leg holds up good, I should be fine.

    I probably shouldn't have gone as heavy as I did since I benched heavy on Monday, but I felt good so I rolled with it and kept going up. I was worried about doing the pulldowns because of my arm, but they felt ok. I will skip doing the pullups untill after the meet, I want to avoid f'ing up my arm.

    A pretty good day. I've never done hip thrusts before and I like them better with the lighter weight. The leg presses bothered my leg a little when I got up to about 4pps. I'm not sure what's wrong with it, but this shit sucks.
