OK good news, my dads cousins wife is a GP, I went round this morning and had her take a look, it is defo not Mersa, she thinks it is a reaction to the tribulus I am taking, said she has seen similar reactions from young men taking it, mine was a free sample tub and I never felt any good things from it so I will throw the rest.
As fir the Gym, I grinded it out, lifted the heaviest I have ever lifted bar the squats and am feeling pretty good right now, if a little fucked.
An old lady was Mirin me doing deadlifts and I am not ashamed to say, I was mirin back, she was a GILF and she inspired me to push those last reps out, just wish I could of pushed them all over her face.
I used straps for the last working deadlifts sets and finally did some weighted decline situps :), here are the numbers for today.
Smith machine 5x20kg per side
Smith machine 5x25kg per side
(nearly crushed myself under bar after 2 reps, embarassed but psyched up reverted to leg press machine)
5x90(?) leg press
5x90(?) leg press
5x100(?) leg press
5x60kg warm up (no straps)
5x80kg warm up (no straps)
5x100kg reversed grip with straps
5x110kg with straps and reversed grip
2x120kg/1x110kg//2x100kg reversed with straps
5x40kg warm up
5x50kg warm up
5x65kg stranger spotted and assisted reps, still feel good about it and count it as a PB
10x20kg straps to keep hold
10x33kg straps to keep hold
weighted decline sit ups
non weighted to failure(about 10)
Could barely walk down the gym stairs and had to hold the rail, the motorbike ride home was interesting, feeling good about the session, despite no spotter, I would of given up after nearly crushing myself awhile back, but I feel really determined to keep going with this and get to where I need to be!
If spotter is back by Friday will not be using the leg press or smith machine, I know its not as good and won’t get it in my head them numbers are my real squat numbers.
Love the straps, feel the dead lift more in my back than arms for once. Will alternate strap and no strap workouts so as not to never develop grip strength.
