275 with leg scissors, Still sick

maxresdefault1I think I talked before about the guy at the gym who combines leg lifts/scissors with bench pressing.  The last time I saw him do it was with 225 pounds on the bar.  Today he upped his game, doing leg scissors while pressing 275 pounds.  Unfortunately he counteracts the impressive feat of strength with being one of those lunks that throws the barbell onto the hooks at the end of each set.

Despite being mildly sick for close to a week I had a decent pushing session at the gym, doing dumbbell chest press for the first time in a while.  When I burned up my elbow last week I was worried I wouldn’t be able to do any pressing stuff for awhile.  The elbow wasn’t much of a problem today but I won’t be doing any tricep work that hinges the elbow this week for sure.
