    Weighed in at 325 this morning. So that's 20 lbs down and counting. My belly is starting to get wrinkly. Didn't feel sick at all the last 2 days.

    Squat:
    45x5
    80x5
    120x3
    160x2
    205x5x3

    Bench:
    45x5
    95x5
    135x3
    175x2
    192.5x5 192.5x5 192.5x4

    Barely missed my last rep, but couldn't lock it out.

    Deadlift
    135x5
    155x3
    225x2
    265x5

    I was gassed after the 3rd rep, had to grind the last 2 out. I think I'm just not eating enough to get through a full session now that the squats have gotten heavy for me. I'm exactly 1/3rd of the way toward the arbitrary weight goal I set for reassessing my macros, so there's a light at the end of the tunnel.

    I have managed to injure myself. My biceps and calves were sore after Tuesday's session and on Weds. I had to replace my washing machine and I really messed up my right biceps doing it. I couldn't sleep without taking ibuprofen for the last 3 days and it felt tender to the touch, but the pain was in the muscle belly, so I figured I'd skip Thursday's session and pick back up today.

    Squats:
    45x5
    85x5
    135x3
    175x2
    215x5x3

    Squats now demand total concentration.

    Press:
    45x5
    70x5
    100x3
    120x2

    Last warmup rep I reinjured my biceps. It felt like I got stabbed right in the middle of the muscle belly and I'm in a lot of pain right now. If anyone has any recovery or rehab pointers, I'm all ears. Well the parts that aren't blubber are all ears, at any rate.

    I injured my right bicep arm wrestling a couple of years ago. It interfered with my bench during a workout, and if I was pressing that day I doubt I could have done that either.

    Injuries suck. At least you can still squat. If your bicep permits you to deadlift, I definitely would not supinate the grip- I think straps would be a good idea. Maybe check out what others have done with similar injuries here? I wish you the best.

    Do you see anything like a black and blue in the bicep area? You may have a tear. Do a search for the Bill Starr rehab method.

    Thanks. No discoloration, but I've got a lot of subcutaneous fat on my upper arms. There's a a moderate amount of swelling, it's tender to the touch and the pain is in a very specific place in the long head a little below the middle of the muscle. I guess I'm going to wait for the pain to blur and start rehabbing with curls every day.

    Bill Starr method is light sets of 25 reps.

    This is what I found by searching and I listened to the Ask Rip episode on the topic. So I'm going give it a try starting tomorrow. Whatever I did to it last night doesn't seem to have been that serious, it's already less painful than it was on Friday, so I think tomorrow will be good.

    Well forget tomorrow, I just did 25 x 50 lb barbell curls and it feels good, now the whole area is sore instead of really painful just in one small spot.
