    squat: 45: 1x5, 95: 1x5, 155: 3x5
    bench press: 45: 1x5, 96.2: 3x5
    deadlift: 45: 1x5, 95: 1x5, 155: 1x5

    I got the washers today; thats pretty fast shipping.

    I did something weird and painful to my neck on the last rep of the set of the squat. Pain shot up into the back of my head. I guess I was keeping the area way too tense? I took some ibuprofin, with luck it will be better tomorrow.

    Nope, still hurts! Feels like someone punched me in the base of my skull. So I decided to temporarily back down on the squat a bit until my neck feels better.

    2010-05-20 - 156.5lbs
    squat: 45: 1x5, 95: 1x5
    press: 25: 1x5, 72.4: 1x5
    chin: 12.5: 1x5

    Unfortunately, I re-aggravated my neck on the last rep of the first non-warmup set on the press, so I decided to cut that short, and the chin-up as well.

    Because the near-continual neck/head pain wasn't like the DOMS I'm used to, in onset or duration, I cut back entirely and saw a doctor Thursday. She couldn't find anything specifically wrong, so she advised me to resume my routine, but cut back the intensity, for a bit, and to take ibuprofin as needed. Which I had hit on myself beforehand... ibuprofin seems to work much better than aspirin for whatever it is that ails me.

    I'm cutting back the most on the squat since that is what did me in.

    squat: 45: 1x5, 95: 1x5, 125: 3x5
    bench: 45: 1x5, 90: 3x5
    deadlift: 45: 1x5, 95: 1x5, 145: 1x5

    Thankfully, I didn't experience any major recurrence of the pain today.

    Squat: 45: 1x5, 95: 1x5, 130: 3x5
    Press: 25: 1x5, 65: 3x5
    Chin-up: 0: 3x5

    Mostly neck-pain free... but I do feel like I'm a bit weaker than I was just a week or two ago, before getting injured. :-\

    squat: 45: 1x5, 95: 1x5, 135: 3x5
    bench: 45: 1x5, 92.4: 3x5
    deadlift: 45: 1x5: 85: 1x5, 150: 1x5

    99% neck pain free; focusing on keeping my head looking slightly down, with a loose neck, seems to do the trick.

    Bench: 45: 1x5, 95: 3x5
    Deadlift: 45: 1x5, 95: 1x5, 165: 1x5

    I lost my form on the last rep of the deadlift, I'll try to avoid that next time.

    squat: 45: 1x5, 95: 1x5, 150: 3x5
    bench: 45: 1x5, 96.2: 3x5
    deadlift: 45: 1x5, 95: 1x5, 165: 1x5

    I repeated the deadlift at this weight to fix my back form, and it was fine this time.

    In the middle of the first set of bench presses I started to wonder if I'd make it... I did it though, albeit a little shaky at the very end.
