Monday
Mis-loads and stupidity = pain

SSB Hatfield Squats
So Dom, training with us today, is a miscounting dick. I worked to what was supposed to be 300kg x 4 reps. Only it was 10kg out on one side and with the SSB it moves around and was compressing the left trap. I racked it after 1 rep, yelled a bit, and took 300kg off for 3 but hot damn, hit the j-hooks twice and I was in agony. It feels like I've been pounded on the neck with a hammer. Like bad whiplash

Leg Press
to 461 x 20 reps (actually ok sitting on the pad)

Leg Extension and Lying leg Curls
just to 6p x 20 reps and blew the last set off due to the pain

Bwt: a it under 309lbs

Cheers Peter. It's a little better

Thursday
The pain from the injury is becoming more localized. I'd got under the bar yesterday to see if I could move well enough but did some limbering and stretching. Today:

Seated Press
Using the Cerebus triple ply elbow sleeves I worked to 107kg x 6 easily.

Hammer DB Curls
to 90lbs x 8 reps (could feel these pulling on my injury)

TPD
to 12p x 8 reps (as above - so stopped)

Bwt: 308lbs

Friday
Still on pain meds. Nothing pushed to the max but equally I wasn't resting and I didn't wanna hold back too much either
Lat Pulldown using a stirrup handle
to the stack x 8 reps. This felt the most ok

Close Grip Bench Press
to 157-kilos x 1 rep. More there for sure

DOH Deadlift
to 207kg x 1 rep - again more there

No grip today (anything I'd do Friday would pull me forward)

Bwt: a fraction under 308lbs

Steve, glad you are on the mend. I agree it is best if you can to do what ever exercises do not irritate the injury. Keep the blood flowing into the area.Hope it is better soon.
Regards,Peter.
