I skipped deadlifts last week because I was hurrying through my workout so I woudn't be late to work. Figured it would be no big deal to miss one week and I'd get back on em the next. Boy was I wrong. I did them today and not an hour later my back was locked up tight as a nuns cunt. I can barely walk, and bending over is torture. How can missing one week, after months of steady lifting, make me feel like I've just started doing deads for the first time ever? Plus that extra week allowed my blisters to heal up and I tore them open all over again today. I had to use straps to get through the rest of my sets, left that shit all bloody when I returned them. From now on, if I'm late to the gym or have to hurry for whatever reason, I'm dropping bench or something. Never again deads or squats.
