    Get this bugger updated. Push day Thursday. Not feeling it and under ate a bit the day before. Things have felt a bit off this week. On a lot of exercises I haven't felt right on set up and got a bit of doubt or discomfort before starting them. Usually when you set up you feel ready for the movement but I've just felt off. This culminated in be kicking up the 50's for db press and just getting it wrong. Should of dropped them but managed to get them up in the right spot in the end and after a few attempts to start pressed them for a slow 7. But I twisted something in my neck and traps which meant I took it easier the rest of the session. Lots of massage on it Thursday night and felt less achy Friday but I took it easier just in case.

    Neck loosened up as I went through the session and is all but better today. Glad I went in as after the massage the night before I think getting the blood around the body helped it a lot.

    Another day off today. Neck was still a tiny bit niggly, back still had doms and most of all I had the runs lol. Could’ve been slightly awkward when forcing a rep out. So decided to just chill and all feels better now. Even got to sample my first bowl of grits just now so a very productive recovery day was had.
    Will give back a break and go in to push day tomorrow

    I’m a man of the Ronnie Coleman era so trying grits is a must lol could imagine they’re pretty nice with egg whites and cheese mixed in as he did.

    Now the fruit loops with marshmallows and especially the cinnamon toasted squares we got brought back for us also truly were awesome. They’re also probably why I had the squits lol Always make the family fill a case full of treats for me when they’re in the states

    Yeah, grits are something that need flavour adding from what I gather. Fruit loops rock.

    Pretty much everything was up in some way except machine press as I had a sickening pump after LR. It was bloody agony lol and the same happened on single pd but the back offs were both better

    Better than a leg session on not much food that's for sure
