I’ve been verging on tears two days in a row now. I hate putting up bad numbers and being the person whining about an injury but there’s nothing else I can do. I’m going to try buying some compression arm bands but I just need to keep stretching out after every work out. But I can still squat. So I will do exactly that. I think I am going to start squating every day, even if I just work on technique. There is always work to be done on getting correct form! Back squat. Front squat. Over head squat. Bring it on.

Every single bar! The best one I found was 6grams, but remember we are only ever meant to have 5grams of sugar in our system at one time!
