Squat 5x5x66, 3x5x96, 3x5x116, 3x5x136 (70 Reps for 6870). Today did not go well. My weak point are the abductors; during warm-ups I could feel them straining even after 70 Reps with light weights. Thought I could work through it and loaded the bar with 146 pounds. I lifted the bar off the pins, stepped back, set my body and started to descend – WHOA! I got the feeling that if I completed the descent, getting up would tear one of my abductors. So I promptly put the bar back onto the pins. Such is life – I’ll be back on Friday. emoticon

Overhead Press 2x5x45, 1x5x55, 1x5x85 (20-Reps for 1,150). My right shoulder (replaced) was aching and again not want to push it did not advance the weights. emoticon

Deadlift 1x5x135 (5 Reps for 635). Lifting with proper form I could feel the right shoulder starting to strain. emoticon It was not my body’s day to push on.

Total Volume for Wednesday: 95 Repetitions for 8,695 Pounds. Have a good lift, Earl emoticon

    Sensible caution. It takes a lot longer to heal up than to mess up.

    I agree. Very wise that you listened to our body.
    You could have done some real harm there.
    Have a great Day and look after yourself. You have
    accomplished so much already. I went to my circuit
    class this morning before work and I could hardly
    move the rest of the day as I could feel calf muscles.

    You are wise indeed to listen to your body! It pays off big dividends in injuries avoided (as you obviously know!)

    Here's to another successful day.
