    friday was fucked up....it went very well just when i did the 150 for 45 i got to 43 and it felt like somebody hit me in the head with a baseball bat....i toughed the last 2 reps out and had the worst headache in my life. i did some research and it seems its called an exertion headache.... apparently i was holding my breath the last few reps. anyway it sucked and it still sucks. bodyweight today was 255 till monday.

    week 7 day 1 (10-16-12)

    deadlift for reps

    deadlift
    135x10
    225x5
    315x3 (added briefs)
    365x5x3

    deadlift with snatch grip
    315x10 (had to stop fucking head started splitting wide open)

    leg press
    3x12

    GHR
    4x10

    back raises
    30 reps

    body weight 253....because of my damn headache problem i had to cut the reps in half on the deadlift and just did away with the squats and substituted leg press instead. my reasoning was i thought it better to at least finish the workout instead of just blowing my head up on the second exercise. unfortunately i may have to do this until it gets better but, you gotta do what you gotta do right?
