135x5
185x12x1

205x1
215x2x3


Second set of 3 with 215 was way easier than the first, but I still stopped there. Just greasing the groove.

DB Row
105x5
95x5


Tweaked my back.

Got some blood work done, blood glucose is still only a few mg lower than when I was consuming 3-400g of carbs a day.

Friday April 20th

Press
45x8
65x5
95x3
105x10x1
115x3x1
125x5x1


Maybe it was the beers, maybe it was the fact that my lower back still hurts and I can't lean back, but 125 felt heavy.

Dips
7 singles


On the minute, except for the 7th which was after two minutes. The great part is, my sternum barely hurt and that was a huge limiting factor in my ability to do dips in the past. Going to do these after every pressing workout, going for PR's in total singles.

Weighed 210 today. Only lost two pounds this week.

Lower back hurts too much to deadlift, so I did some chins. Hit a serious and sudden wall on the last rep.

Felt like I had max 5 reps, squat seems to be not holding up as well as my upper body stuff. Looking forward to having carbs back in my diet.

Felt pretty strong with my right arm, grip didn't hold for some reason with my left so the set was crappy.

Left proximal bicep tendon felt sore and fragile, weights felt heavy.
