Last week Wednesday was one of those days. I had some awesome "picks" on the college basketball games and wanted to watch them in style, beer and cigarette in hand. I had finished the wide grip chin ups, underhand chin ups and overhand chin ups. I could already feel my back muscles were getting tight with fatigue. I usually do my rowing exercises with a hand and a knee on the bench while pulling a 90 lb dumbbell up and down (see diagram #1). In this case three sets starts to feel like six doing each arm individually. I wanted to get done sooner so I threw two 45 lb plates on the bar to do bent over rows (see diagram #2). Everything seemed to go ok and I was done in a jiffy.
Two days later I could hardly raise my arm above my shoulder. Four days later, instead of doing shoulder presses with 60 lb dumbbells I was struggling with 20 pounders. Nine days later and it still pains me to hold a phone to my head when I need two hands on the computer. I don't know what I pulled but I'm starting to think I should get it checked out, and I absolutely hate going to see a doctor or chiropractor.
Lesson learned, though: don't try to cheat on your workout or you will pay for it later.

Should change the blog name to "The Best Guide to Losing in Every Aspect of Life" or "Stick IT (Any Object) in My Ass, I Might Like it."
I consider any other suggestions you might have.
