Take 2 days off, get a new PB for squats. You should do that more often!

So much women bullshit that I'm thinking about going to the gym today in the early afternoon before work. I had 4.5 hours of sleep last night and didn't eat well all day yesterday. I don't know if its a good idea but I need to get my mind right somehow.

I have taken a few days off to give my elbows and shoulders a break since they have been very sore when I lift or play golf. Thats the reason for no updates. I'll be back in it on Monday.

I went and did chest yesterday with my elbow wrapped and sleeved up to help with the pain and it felt like it did until the end where it just started throbbing. I mainly stuck to high rep/low weight just to help keep less pressure on my elbow.

Incline bench
4x15@135

Flat Bench
1x15@135
1x15@155
1x15@135 (155 kinda hurt so I went down)

Cable flys/crossover
3x15@50/side

I tried to do the low ones but that really put tension on my elbow.
Decline Hammer strength
3x20@90

Tricep extensions
5x15@100

By this time my elbow was uncomfortable so I quit and did abs.

Weight: 200

Fuck I can tell a lot that my physique is suffering from not going to the gym. I'm softer, flatter and I jiggle a little more :(

First day back after a break. Elbow feels a little better, just haven't really been pushing it. Maybe the pain will come back on any press exercise :(

Back/biceps

Wide grip pulldowns
2x15@105
1x10@165
2x9@195

t-bar rows
1x15@90
2x12@135

Cable low rows
1x12@180
2x10@225

Dumbbell rows
1x12@55
2x10@90

Alternating dumbbell curls (these are what worried me the most since any type of curl in the previous week would hurt like a motherfucker but I was cautious today).
1x10@25s
2x10@35s

Preacher curls
1x10@45
2x10@65

Reverse grip curls
3x12@45

20 minutes of cardio.

Weight: 197

For the most part it was a relaxed session just testing my elbow. I have rested, wrapped and taken lots of glucosamine and anti-inflammatory pills just to keep the pain down and it has helped.
