Press After - 130 X 9
Deadlift Before - 310 X 15
Deadlift After - 370 X 14
Bench Before - 195 X 10
Bench After - 215 X 8

Thanks, Jim.

Very impressive progress - now get your ass healthy. Although technically it was a shitty thing, fucking up my back helped me learn more about training than if I hadn’t. I wish things had been different but not only did I learn about rehab and how to program training but I have new goals, and a totally different take on training.

In other words, find something good about being hurt or it’ll be a waste of time.

Thanks, Jim! Wise words. I believe I tore an intercostal on the last rep here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u6k2SzAkb4U. Felt a pop and hurt like hell.

As you can see my form went bad. I love pushing the AMRAP sets but I think I’m pushing them too far. I literally hit a PR every workout on squats for the entire 9 months!

Remember - it’s not an ANRAP set. It’s a PR set!
