On Monday I thought I'd popped an eardrum from valsalvaing, but today only 2 reps in the last set felt super hard - I'm either getting stronger or my body just has no idea what to make of all this nonsense with sets of 5. Gross Medical Stuff: Reveal hidden contents Remember that I gave fair warning by putting this in spoiler tags... I've had this large subcutaneous cyst on the back of my shoulder for 2 weeks and it's getting super fucking annoying (and extremely painful- like a knife when any pressure is applied). It's right where the bar sits for squatting and ALSO right where my shoulder make contact with the bench when bench pressing. I had to be "one of those people" the other day and use a doubled up towel on the bench for padding. Anyway... long story made short... I'd had enough, so I performed home surgery and removed it - (very challenging when you have to do everything while using a mirror)... Injected local anaesthetic, made an incision, got the goo out and taped it all back together... fairly neat job considering. Now just waiting for the anaesthetic to wear off to see how painful it is... LIFTING: 11/24 (Need 20) + 3 PR's PROTEIN: 12/24 (Need 20) GOOD FOOD: 17/42 (Need 30) BRO SESH: 2/6 RUSSIAN: 3/6 HOME SURGERY COMPLETED: 1/1 I'm betting on getting stronger, although it could be both. I don't think my body being all "hey, wait, whattheheck are we doing here?" and strongering are mutually exclusive, they seem to go together in my life more than not. Spoiler dude, wow. I've done some crazypants med stuff to myself, but not over-the-shoulder-behind-the-back crazypants. Cool trick dude. Please update us on the healing process as it goes! 2 Quote “To see that your life is a story while you're in the middle of living it may be a help to living it well." -Ursula K.
