ONE REP less, but 20 kilos heavier than last week. Pretty happy with this effort, and very, very glad nothing hurt... apart from my ears. Very strange music selection tonight. I felt like I should be pilling, waving glow sticks about and wearing oversized clothes with most of my underwear showing. Not lifting heavy shit. But anyway, this means I can keep deadlifting, which (pardon the pun) is a major weight off my shoulders. Too few things are going right, right now, but at least I have the deadlift back.

My right arm is just pissweak. Pissweak - like it was when I started curling with it in 2010. Only then I was a little stronger... and quite a bit more flexible. I will have to get a referral for an angiogram on my right hip, at some point in the near future. And I really don't know if I should continue squatting heavy while I'm in this condition.

In fact I've been advised that my problem is developmental. My connective tissue et cetera is weak because I didn't do enough resistance training or similar when I was younger, and this is the truth. The way to remedy this is (FML) 20-30 reps sets of a weight I can do only 20-30 reps of. Monday nights are gonna be anguishing. But hopefully, with this approach, it won't make my hip any worse in the meantime.
