Haha! That's pretty much exasctly what I'dsay to someone else if the same thing happened to them. I should listen to my own advice.

Thanks fellas! Shoulder isn't really that bad, doesn't stop me from pressing or anything like that. I just need to figure out why it gives out from time to time. We'll see.

As for today, I don't know what happened, but I was having a bad day with bench. I'm flabbergasted as I almost never have a bad day with bench. Just didn't feel right and I bailed on the bench and press work.

Week 4
warmups: rowing, band shoulder stuff, pullups 6x 2
Dynamic: P. Snatch to 120, missed 135, wasn't happening today

Bench:
1x 255 pause (almost didn't get it!)
8x 210 (barely got these and said enough)

Giant set, light and high rep 4 rounds, 2-3 min in between rounds:
DB Rows:4x 20x 55 (cardio!)
Lying Extensions: 4x 20x 50
Kirk Rows: 4x 20x 95
Hammers: 4x 20x 23

Did Donnie's shoulder stabilizer exercise with 30DB 4x 45 sec per arm. Pretty cool. I like these. Messed around with band stuff for upper back too. Dislocations, face pulls, etc.

Stretched chest and triceps.

255 pause:
8x 210:

Still shaking my head about having a tough day on bench. That hasn't happened in a long time! I guess I was just due for one. The bodybuilding stuff was fun though! Sweating like a beast, but fun.

Squats tomorrow! Onward and upward.

Good pause and it must have felt tougher than it looked. Nice single.

Nicely done man. Some days are just off and it happens. You still got some good work in.

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.

Glad you're ok Mike! Sounds like a scare that turned out to be a blessing! Goals will still be smashed, I have no doubt!!!

That would have thrown anybody for a loop Mike. Big relief it is somewhat minor. I imagine some drastic-ish diet changes will relieve the acid reflux? I know if that isn't taken care of it can lead to more serious issues.

You definitely are what you eat. I even had to give up potatoes and tomatoes recently to help get my inflammation under control and I'll be damned it worked! The way I look at it is that I'd rather be able to see and be relieved of low back pain than eat spuds and pasta sauce. I think if you find a good perspective you can do it.

The diet changes and the supps Lisa prescribed for me worked so there is no reason to think changes will not work for you as well. Were also always here for support when you need it.

Anything that works for your health will help with your lifting.

Glad you have a new expert in your corner!

Now, back to the gym!

Many people ignore the warning signs better to error on the side of caution like you did.
You may see some big gains headed your way when you get your diet ironed out.
