    Db row
    120lb dbs for 8x3 (30+ sec ri; strapped)

    Seated, pronated row
    165lbs for 5x5 (30 sec ri)

    Chin ups
    Bw for 4x8 (30 sec ri; rps on last set)

    Face pulls
    135lbs for 3x12 (30 sec ri)

    Stretched piriformis


    Ok today during the last 2 sets of db rows, i felt pain on my left side, near my arm pit, closer to my chest. Heartrate was 180 and when i stopped, i got it down to 160. 20 bpm reduction in 1 min of rest is typical, but this pain wasnt. Searched for these symptoms in men for heart attack and it doesnt show.

    Hard to determine when its a high intensity workout, while on caffeine, while on an empty stomach. Checked my blood pressure now and its fine. So is heart rate. What gives?

    I was also dizzy but not then, i was dizzy at the end. Again, no calories, on nitraflex. But, ive done this countless times! Almost...every time.

    That said, awesome awesome workout. Even saw and wanted the very very ugly girl that has the very very perfect ass n legs. What a paradox.

    Ok today was 100% better but i didnt go in with a plan. I did want to do an upper push again, but, get this, my piriformis is back again. It was cuz of the theracane i used yesterday! Massaging a trigger point can trigger a trigger point!

    Not wise to do this while the piriformis is pissed but any weight was the same pain and it only hurt when i set up every 1st rep. Other than that, i was fine. Full recovery om the 1st 2 exercises.

    God dammit. I have to pick up the t bar to start and THAT was enough to hurt my ass. Man, this is really debilitating!

    So, I opted for a floor press. Never done these and wow, theyre not easy! Once I got to the HS rows, which were taken up at first, I thought I might as well go heavy since the floor presses were a challenge.

    Both of those heavy movements really winded me. Lots of valsalva going on to solidify the lifts. Got dizzy.
