Not feeling it in my upper body

I know I have to take it easy on my upper body because of ribs, and I have told myself that I am not allowed to bench yet (I decided to try it at the end of the workout anyways) but I am just not feeling any muscles waking up in my chest or arms.... Continue Reading →

Dead, dead, dead

I had high hopes for this deadlift day, I was feeling good, but on my last set of deadlifts my left lower ribs started hurting again. Maybe it's my belt, or I need more muscle over top of my ribs, or I need the layer of fat back... I'm not sure but 30 minutes after... Continue Reading →
