i'm actually satisfied with today's work out. i managed to let the lat work more at the bench press but therefore the pull-ups were a bit weaker than last weak.

don't know exactly. my back started to hurt a bit a week ago or so but it got better after every training and was almost gone last thursday. on thursday i was already sick but decided to go to the gym anyway. afterwards my back started to hurt really bad and of course i got sicker, too. seems like it was a pretty stupid decision to go training while being sick. :augenroller:

Do some light discotraining and you feel more motivated and your back might get some time to recover.

sorry dude, didn't see that you posted here!

@bronco: thx!

short info on my current training:

can't do deads and squats at the moment so i switched to a push/pull workout again. doing most exercises PITT-Force style except for bench press. hurt my knee a little while ago and can't train legs at all since then. the little bit of training i can do at the moment is going pretty well actually. after a pause i worked up to a new rep-pb on the bench and other than that i'm doing weighted dips with 20kg now, which is pretty good for me i think.

Hey dude, sorry to hear you've had some knee problems but it's good to hear you're still doing some training. This could mean you'll turn into a bench press monster :P
