  1. The Daily Grind

    That's my competitive year done I think. Pecs no good for max work, and felt a little funny on super light machine work. Went in and started warming up on the pec machine, straight away I knew there would be no benching today.. The worst thing about it is thst I've never had this injury before so have no idea how to manage it or how much I can work through it. Not real gutted but things were moving really well and 152.5 second attempt was likely. I completed 2 bench comps this year 147.5 and 150kg. I really wanted the third competition to close in closer to 160. Oh well. Time to get over it, find new goals and work towards that huge pump in the gym today push/pull super light weights

    I'm pretty confident that I can rep 150x2 on the bench next week in sleeves. But now I don't even think I'll make the competion on the 28th due to this pec strain. 100 on the bar now and it doesn't feel great. Really frustrating because last sesh I felt I could blast up 140 doubles for 5 sets. My best is 140x3 with sleeves In April. I think it's over.....nooooooo
