Entry #1084

Lifting with an injured back, so I donned my dad's old weightlifting belt for the first time ever.

370 x 5
415 x 3
465 x 5
> Felt so strong, but stopped early as back pain set in. Still a PR. Can't wait to see what I can do next cycle after I'm healed.

One-arm overhead press:
80 x 5, 5, 5/8
> 8 reps on right arm for the last set. Right arm is much stronger here, but on dumbbell bench press my prior-injured left is usually the easier side. Weird.

Face-pulls between press sets

Neutral-grip chins:
15, 8, 8, 6, 6

SSB box squats + monster mini bands:
240 x 5, 1
> Back twinged, so terminated the exercise.

Incline dumbbell skullcrushers:
50s x 4
40s x 10, 8


  1. Hey.How long did it take for you to go from 270 Bench to 3 plate?

  2. Couldn't tell you for sure, but I'd say about a year and a half.

  3. FuarrrrkkkkkkkkDiminishing gains ftl

  4. Haha, yup. What's the hurry, though? That's fine for me, as long as I get there.
