Training - Chest and Shoulders

Weight - 243

Incline Press - 135 x 15, 185 x 4, 225 x 3, 275 x 2, 325 x 1, 275 x 13

Db Bench - 100's x 18

Side Lateral Machine - 144 x 11, 120 x 12

Boxing - 5 - 2 minute rounds

Sprints - 5 total with walking between

Notes - Felt great.  Wrapped the elbow good on the top sets but it felt ok today after hurting since that close grip session.  For whatever reason the incline press doesn't bother my elbow as much so, no more heavy close grips from here on out.


  1. Is the elbow the reason you're not flat benching, or is that something else?

  2. Flat benching does seem to bother it now more than it used to, but I think I can still do flat benching if I stay light (225-275 range) for high reps for a while as it heals.

  3. Hi Paul,
    Just a thought, do you think the boxing could be partly responsible for the elbow pain?


  4. Good call Dan, but it's shadow boxing. When I am fighting my elbows do get beat up because of hitting the pads and bags, but it's a different kind of ache. I'm pretty sure this is golfers elbow.


    you can stop and start the goat at any point and it still matches. LMAO.

  6. Content terminated! Was Sarah Connor in this video?

  7. Hey Paul, I just stumbled on your blog, I enjoy your philosophy. Also, your music tastes. Are you a meshuggah fan per chance?

  8. Hmmm hard to say. I am a fan of certain songs usually but I find it hard to be a fan of bands a lot now because so much filler music is made, even by good bands, simply to fill up a CD.

    I like Bleed a lot by them.
