Thanks fellas! I had a bit of a health scare that is maybe more embarrasing than serious and it has thrown me for a loop this past week. I had some chest pains while squatting last friday, so I quit the session. Next thing I know, chest pains got so bad and I couldn't breathe so I went to hospital thinking I'm having a heart attack.

Well 14 hours of tests later, I'm fine, but maybe have acid reflux and am overweight. I have young kids and while I am getting stronger, my health has to take precedence.

I met with a nutritionist who is a weightlifter so she has no problem with that, but I need to get my diet under control. I eat too much crap and maybe stress myself too much. She said no more "big" meals, eat 6 times a day and keep it reasonable, no crap. I think she's right.

I still have my same goals. I will squat 405, bench 315, and deadlift 425 + but I need to get my health sorted out a little first.

Back on my plan next week. This was just a crazy week mentally which is why I have stayed away. I'll be back tomorrow.

Hack away at anything which isn't essential. Do what you love, and do it often. Fazc.

Everything competes for recovery so more assistance is not always the best idea. miked96
