I'try 66lb next time.

56min

*Got my cousin look at my form today. Although he doesn't lift but I told him how my form should look like. He told me that my back was slightly round in DL while I was puting down the barbell. I have to focus more on strict form (chest up, chest up). Also in Curl, my right arm curls up faster than my left, but I don't worry about it right now.

Workout B

Squat

132 x 5

Squat

132 x 5

220 x 3

264 x 1

302.5 x 4

302.5 x 4

This is exceedingly heavy. Dropped the barbell on the safety bars in the first set after I stuck at the bottom for about 5 seconds; that was scary.

Bench Press

132 x 3

154 x 1

165 x 5

No good.

Deadlift

132 x 5

220 x 3

242 x 4

I know I can't do 264lb today for sure. My might had been crushed down today. So I use 242lb and try to keep it in solid form.

必ず又の機会が来る。There's always a next time.

This saying could properly be said after someone has said "This sucks!".

Drank too much milk before workout and felt a little cramped.

Dropped the barbell again in the second set, this time I fell foward while I tried to squat up from bottom. Interestingly, this time the first set felt fine, but it was fine only in the first set though.

Press

44 x 5

88 x 3

110 x 1

132 x 5

I could probably see the tunnel of light in the last rep, but I am nihilistic so I saw nothing. Anyway, it's a progress. I'll try 308lb next time.

I can feel quite some stress in my lower back and around the area above my glutes, no pain though.

Post workout meal consists of some non-fat milk, 4 egg whites and a very big, sweet and juicy watermelon, special thanks to my mother. It's very close to the best fruit on earth, for the best is melon.

Got a fever yesterday. My temperature has dropped today but headache and throat soreness still make me feel like crap.

No Crunch today, tired.

Got left side lower back pain. It's neither ache all the time nor in specific posture. It's just unexpectedly ache for a few seconds then it's gone, intermittently. I don't know whether it comes from the fall in squat or not.

Feel much better. No headache and no weariness, there's just a bit sore throat left. It seems like those viruses are giving up.

74min

Squats took about half an hour. If I dropped the barbell, it took quite some time to take it back on the pin.

My weight plates sometimes spin if I have not lock it tight enough which have to be very very tight. And the bad thing is they are not round, they are handgrips-attached weight plates. Which make me feel very uncomfortable when I do those exercises that pull from the floor. I never know there is this kind of problem. Well, now I've learnt.

Terrific! It's a progress. Unexpectedly, I feel the barbell is lighter than before. Or maybe it is because I wore a belt? I usually don't wear a belt in bench press. Next's 170.5#
