Almost two weeks ago I got a personal high on the flat bench. While that's cool and all I was a complete moron and lifted my back off the bench and strained a muscle in my neck. Every time I got to about 6 or so reps my head felt like it was exploding. Took a week off from the gym and everything seems fine now. I was so depressed last week I gained a little over 5 lbs from stuffing my face and watching TV.

Doesn't care (/◕ヮ◕)/
Annoyed. Goal has been to run a mile in 9:00. Decided to start my timer and not look at it until I crossed the line on the 5th lap (5 lap mile on a track I run on). Didn't want to look at the timer due to ending up running faster at the end to gain a few more seconds and break my pace.
Crossed the line, looked at my phone.....9:05.......Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu.
Got mad and tried again right after walking one lap to calm down, 20 seconds slower..
Although I do not know what happened. I went to the gym HARD for one month straight (5 days a week, 2-3 hours a day with an hour of that cardio) Every time I ran, my shins would burn and hurt bad. Took a 2 week break due to things happening (gtaV and bf4 beta ) On monday I went back, ran a mile with no leg pain whatsoever, even ran a second mile because I didn't feel tired.
Figured it was a fluke, but I've been to the gym 2 more times since then and ran 2 miles each time, with only about 30 seconds of walking between miles to strech my legs a bit again. It's like someone flipped a light switch and made my shins stop hurting.
I don't always play pump, but when I do, I prefer a rotor.....stay agg my friends.

I finally found a gym with bumpers and platforms that's frequented by experienced oly lifters. It's amazing how technique-based those lifts really are, I can't even explain what hanging around those dudes has done for my lifts in less than a week.
Plus dropping the weight is really really fun.
I started a 4-week cycle from Everett that focuses on squats/c&j/snatch evenly and I PR'd like a madman throughout the week. Started to use bench as an accessory. I have trouble sleeping the night before a training session, it feels so good to have real platforms and plates.

I've gotten back into lifting in the past few months but more recently I've gotten into cross fit training. Twice a week a high intense strength and cardio workout plus power workouts 3/4 times a week. Deadlift, flat bench, military press,
Feels good to be throwing weight around

Back in November of 2006 I was stretching and heard both of my knees POP loudly followed by immediate pain, nothing crazy but it hurt. Took it really easy during leg days for 5 months. Then in April of 2007 I broke my foot at work and it never healed right due to the company Doctors I had to go to which led me to have my foot re-broke and a screw inserted in February of 2010.
For the past 3 weeks I finally haven't had any pain when doing leg workouts!
I couldn't even do 2 plates (each side) on the leg press machine without my knees or foot killing me. Anything calf related was a total no go.
Today I did 8 plates (each side) on the leg press machine and 225 lbs. squats and dead-lifts. I'm almost half way to where I was 8 years ago which makes me even more determined to get back lifting heavy-*** weight again.

Good to hear, can't imagine how hard that would be to watch years of hard work and progress get taken away by an injury.
Sweet avatar, btw.
Today completely sucked for me, I'm only one week into a new routine and I'm already stalling.
