Entry #245
Put up 275 lbs on bench press with no spotter for singles. Initially there was pain in my right rotator cuff (fairly confident that's the problem area) on warm-ups, but it got better. It's funny. I felt pressure at 135 lbs in my shoulder, but 275 lbs felt great. I'm still unsure as to whether I should actually be working through this thing, though. Someone jacked the lifting belt and I was driving myself crazy figuring out how to hang on to a 90 lb dumbbell between my feet - the head was too small. Opted for normal bodyweight dips with higher reps. Who the hell keeps taking that thing, anyways? It's there for a few days and then it disappears, only to return the next week.

Flexibility is awesome. I'm striving for perfect splits by the end of the year. This has actually transferred over to deeper squat form. I also have an easier time with higher kicks.


  1. Damn dude, you're quickly approaching my bench press.  Scary =P

  2. Nub, call me when you're doing 330. Oh wait, you were talking about bench.
