Thanks! I like too that I'm on a routine again. When I dropped out of marathon training I felt kind of aimless. But I'm back at it now!

I hate when that happens :x

Be careful, you don't need any broken or bruised ribs. Can no one spot you? When you start doing really heavy loads, you might need one to keep progressing. I did.

I have been in that situation before :oops:

Since I usually lift alone, I now use a cage w/ the low arms set to hold the weight in case I can't press it back up...here lately though I have had a spotter.

At any rate, that is a pretty impressive workout!

Thanks!

I work out at my office gym and its a ghost town when I'm there! There is supposed to be a staff member around but I rarely see her. I usually just avoid going to failure on bench - just wasn't paying enough attention!

I take it the office gym doesn't feature a smith machine or cage/power rack of any type? Or a bench machine w/ weight stack?

There are youtube vids of how to get out from under "stuck" lifts, but most of them are scary!

They have a Jones machine instead of a power rack. I use it for squatting, I suppose I could start using it for benching. Beats being trapped under a bar I guess. :)

My throat is really messed up today, I'm home from work. Haven't been eating much, just managed to choke down some soy milk with really soggy cereal in it. Bleh.

I'm starting to think so. Boo. :(

At home again today. We still don't have a couch so it's not like I can even enjoy bad daytime television. (couch should finally get here next week)

Oh, no, the dreaded "roll of shame!" I've done that quite a bit too. Since I'm still working with somewhat light weights, it doesn't usually seem like that big of a deal to me. I came up with some sort of quick-butt-scoot maneuver while sort of launching the bar forward, so it lands in front of my pelvis on the bench instead of directly on top of it. It's probably not too good for the bench, though. :lol:
