    Turns out I think it was a bad cramp in my hamstring. Squats felt good( besides some knee slide). Feels a lot better today, so thatís great news!

    Training makes one resilient! I have found since I began training that injuries/pains similar to your recent one never are as bad as they seem, or last as long as anticipated, based on my experiences pre-training.

    I agree 100%. Back four years ago if this wouldíve occurred ( when I was a scrawny 190 and pretty much just exercising) I probably wouldíve set around for a couple of weeks waiting on it to get better. I often surprise myself on what I can actually still do when Iím injured. Itís always worth trying anyway. Worst case, one will just have to rehab it for a couple of weeks. Fortunately, Iíve found that I could still train through my last couple of pulls/strains.

    Managed to get a Herculean set of 5 on that second set of press. You know, that last rep is a grinder and you are pretty much wrestling that last rep up. Didnít record it, and donít know how many seconds it took to complete, but I actually had time to take another breath through the sticking point. Decided to take a rain check on HDL for several reasons. I plan on starting back on schedule with rack pulls next week.

    Medium Squat
    390x5x3

    Press
    166.75x4

    My medium day squat load is starting to feel kind of heavy, as it should at this point of the program. Here in a couple or weeks Iím going to drop it down to just one set of five, as I have done previously when running this program. My press was freaking tired today. The warmups felt heavier than usual, and the first rep hung up in the air for way to long. That first rep felt like it shouldíve been the 3rd or 4th. I was also distracted by clavicle pain from where Iíve been smacking it with the bar when I reach my hips, going have to work on this. So, Iím going to eat and sleep and see what Sunday beholds. Here lately itís been hit and miss with my press, this is telling me that itís taking more than 48 hrs to recover from intense lifting at this point. I suspect that LP for it has about ran itís course.

    Press is moving along nicely now since I transitioned into a front rack. Iím finally getting a little rebound from my hips. Had a little too much knee on those last couple of reps, was trying hard to take a big breath and brace my abs but neglected to squeeze my quads and glutes very much. Need to clean this up some. Not bad though, definitely think I can get 200+ up for a single soon!
