    Outstanding endurance, XFM. Out of curiosity, where do you usually run?

    I usually run on the streets with very little traffic. It's often uphills as I live in a mountainous areaa.

    My cardio workouts need a little adjusting so as to give growth a chance. There will be quite a reduction. Otherwise I won't be able to eat all the food it takes to add some mass.

    Yup. It's not easy to gain weight when doing heavy cardio.

    Looked like there was some maintenance going on yesterday, and I always got an error message from the database. That's why yesterday's workout comes today.

    My shoulder hurt during the bench press on Monday, and I got a stiff neck, too. I was pretty afraid to bench again, even more so with a weight with which I am going to hit my post-surgery best next week. I suppose the stiff neck comes from the lack of range of motion in my left scapula. I have started some rear deltoid exercises and it seems to be getting better.

    Let me say a few words about today’s workout. It was simply COOL! The bench press was surprising. I loaded the weight for three reps, and the reps came out so easy that I started laughing. Next week is the week for my post-surgery bests. The bench press will be a piece of cake. I never thought I would one day look forward to doing the bench press as it has always been my least favorite exercise.
