On Tuesday I was BB bench pressing and did it.
More to the point, the program I am journalizing here:
had me doing an explosive strength day (day 4), with which I was to find an 18 rep max at the beginning and I presume speed rep it for 6 sets of 3, 60 seconds between sets. For week 1 I just guessed 165lbs, but found it ridiculously easy. Up to 185lbs last week and it seemed not bad, but I thought to get more speed for week 3, the workout just passed on Tuesday. I actually did it at 190lbs and after the first or second sets I noticed a slight strain and didn't have the presence of reason to stop altogether until after set 5.
It hurt a tiny bit in the interim. Today is the maximal strength day and last I left off with a pair of 92.5lbs dumbbells for working sets, no presumption of speed. I planned an extra warm up set in addition to skipping rope, beginning with a pair of 55lbs for 10, slowly and felt optimistic until I stretched back to control landing them on the floor after.
It hurt then and has shocks of pain these last few hours with simple towel drying of my hands. I have Meloxicam 15mg daily on an as needed basis for an old hamstring strain that is improving of late. I took it a few hours ago to no difference.
I have stretched a bit. I wonder if anyone has any ideas to nip this one early and get back on track, please and thanks.
