Had a really good late summer, fall bulking up season - was able to put on 12 lbs from 172 - and still only moved my body fat percentage up from 16 to 18. So those are solid gains.
Now however, I injured my right rib cage doing lying triceps dumbell extensions (its an intercostal tear).
Hurts like hell - and I have not been in the gym for three days -
I think I may take the week off - but I am going nuts thinking about how I could lose what I just put on -
I know it makes no sense to lose everything in one week - but I need some sort of assurance a break is the right thing for me right now.
This thing we do really does mess with our heads
