I'm back! Neck still has some pain but I have mobility again. Still need to be careful and I've learned my lesson about overhead pressing until I'm completely better.

No noticeable upper-body strength loss in my week off. May have gained some fat weight from increased carbs and liberal eating, though I'm always solid on protein intake. Will weigh myself tomorrow.

Bench press:
255 x 3
290 x 3
325 x 3

Close-grip bench:
245 x 10, 10, 10, 10, 9

Weighted chins:
70 x 5 x 12
No weight: 25

6.5 minutes of curls, rear delts, external rotations


  1. Glad to have you back. In a show of solidarity, I also injured my neck overhead pressing the other day, haha. Mine was not as tragic as yours, but I realized that I've been neglecting my neck harness work as well.

  2. Thanks much. How often does it happen to you?

    1. If I am diligent with my neck harness work, hardly ever anymore. As soon as I start slacking on it though, it's pretty frequent. About every 2 months or so.
