I skipped benching yesterday, since I got to the gym late and didn't have time for my full workout. Meanwhile, I didn't want to skip delts since I missed shoulders last week.

I was kind of a bum last week and only got in one workout (not including a 2hr hike I did on Sunday). This week I'm back on track though.

I've been pretty sick lately with a bad soar throat/head cold. In fact, I even called off work yesterday. Meanwhile, I missed training legs on Friday and chest, delts and abs/obliques on Monday. Anyway, I'm finally starting to feel a little better, and I'm hoping to start lifting again later this week, depending on how I feel.
