    I'll start doing curls between squat sets. I wouldnt have been able to curl after squats today so maybe the curls between sets can be a pre-emptive strike, Thanks

    315 x 1,1,1,1 was planning on 10 singles today but didnt have the power.

    Gonna take a couple days off. My left bicep started hurting during the bench presses and the elbows felt weak on the eccentric part of the movement. Im thinking maybe my joints and connective tissues aren't strengthening as fast as the muscles. Im hoping a couple days off plus light days to start off next week should let me heal up.

    On a positive note my CGBP pr was great and my wrists are feelin great and I did the first 3 sets without the wrist wraps with no pain. 3rd set was an attempt at 4 so I wrapped up for another shot.

    Just a lil conditioning for my fat ass

    walk 2 miles 28 min
    jog 2 miles 17 min

    I was going to just walk but after 2 miles I was a bit impatient so I jogged home. I took super easy pace with a very short stride. Everything felt great. Was done fasted on 10g BCAAs
