JB'S OLD SCHOOL SEMESTER 6 DAY 1 BENCH ME

Right eye was better Friday but is now even worse today. Ugh

This marks the first time I missed prescribed reps. I know why - I couldn't get tight enough. I woke up with a bad lower back ache and my upper back was not recovered from Thursday. I know for a fact that under better "conditions" 265 X4 would have been owned.

I'm not disappointed at all tho. I gave it my all and I worked hard and I know it will be mine next time. I think I'm just getting to the point where I will need a little extra recovery time. Not sure how to proceed now as I will have to wait for JB to get back. Not pressing the panic button. It's his program so I am sure he has provisions in the event I miss reps.

Despite the issues, I did manage to set a PR. I have never repped 265 before. I have repped it 2 board, but never full ROM. I also decided to run the rack on the Incline DB's. Something different for sure.

The day started off the best ever tho. I had a dream that I was at my high school reunion and a guy asked me about my tattoos. I showed him my Zack Kahn one and then my Franco one deadlifting. Next thing I know I am pulling 500 and I locked it out and refused to let it go. Then I woke up at 7:53AM. Next thing I know my lower back is killing me. I have never had a lifting dream before.

Not sure how squats are going to pan out Sunday. It all depends on whether or not my back will co-operate.
