Pretty exciting workout – I decided to do deadlifts for the first time since 6/4 and they felt pretty good. Everything was pretty easy and fast, but I feel my forearm aching after the 585 and 655 doubles so I shut it down. No sense in overdoing it right from the start. Pleased that I could hit 655 without much trouble after the extended ‘time off’ from deads. Did some rack pulls afterwards to finish things off. Moved on to bench and things went fine until my first double @ 345. After racking the bar I had a sharp pain in my right elbow (where its been hurting the last month) and could barely extend or bend my arm. I pulled off my elbow sleeves and rested a bit and started doing some light chest presses (which were excruciating) and then I felt a ‘pop’ in my elbow and the pain instantly went away and I had no troubles finishing some light pressing after that. I must have pinched a nerve on that set. Feeling OK now but will probably skip bench on Friday to let it rest. Just to be safe.
