goofed up on the squats....gonna have to increase it by 10 lbs next week...

bench was surprisingly much better than on most days...i think i could've done 8 reps with 160 easy.... odd, no?

rows were great i should put a PR next to it, but i'll be patient and wait till monday......

good workout....i need to get my pre-workout nutrition right....my last meal before workout was 4 hours before....damn....

but: me happy with almost everything....just wish i had taken 250 on squats...well, there's 245 next session

As usual you make this more mental then it is. You got all the weights and sets up. Why sweat it? You're body doesn't care if you're happy or not, it'll adapt anyway. But unwarranted stress is detrimental.

If you act sanctimonious I will just list out your logical fallacies until you get pissed off and spew blasphemous remarks.

Overall Impression:

i slept for only 6 hours last night...i was dehydrated.....and after losing 15 lbs of my body mass, i've lost a lot of strength as well...this is in fact magnified by the shittiest deads i have ever done....300x2?? yuck!

however the only 2 good things that happened in today's workout are:
1.) my shoulders have become stronger; military presses were really intense
2.) my weight has increased by 3 lbs to 169 lbs

i did the extra shoulder and back exercises to strengthen my shoulders...i give credit to All Pro - because of whose doccuments, i know which exercises to perform to strengthen my delts...

its gonna be quite some time before i set any new PRs ppl......i seriosuly HATE this....
