    This can be misdiagnosed. My son went to an urgent care and they thought he had missed his meds based on the physical symptoms ( He suffers from anxiety and depression and he appeared impaired). Ended up in emergency and a week in the hospital.

    USE COLLARS! seriously, very dangerous w/out them. they make spring loaded ones for the olympic bar..............or take the time to screw them on if you have that set-up. attempting to recover your balance can cause injury. rant off.

    Glad that you seem to be uninjured from this mishap. Like varget said: collars! If the gym has inconvenient ones then bring your own spring loaded ones in your gym bag. They cost very little.

    I never use collars but...If there is a reason to use them, use them. Your dead lifts are getting to respectable. Good Job.

    Your bench is terrible, do you have shoulder injury?

    My elbow tendons are crap. They will become inflamed and useless if I increase weight too fast. Lifelong issue. Goal is a body weight bench. May take up to a year.

    Having cancer took a big toll on my walk around energy, and to a lesser extent, workout recovery time. I think I’m about 90% recovered but boy, I can certainly use that missing 10% !! :)

    Do you use collagen? If not do. Collagen is a very good friend. It will cost $20ish and will remove your pains.
