> Damnation! Very close to lockout. While I was struggling under the bar I twinged my back slightly. I have to remember to think about pressing myself down into the bench rather than the weight up and out, to prevent lifting my glutes whenever I'm in a bind.

> Extremely short rests in the interest of time.

Muscle Milk came a couple of days ago. I used the first one today when I woke up (not intentionally) after three hours of sleep. I chugged the carton and went back to bed.
