I am now on my fifth day of steroids for my ear issue which have not helped so far.  I was hoping they could at least help my bench press numbers.  They seemed to fall short of that goal as well.  My bench press buddy wasn’t there today so I went at it alone.  I struggled to get 225lbs for one rep which is fine.  Technically I’m not supposed to be doing any strenuous activity anyway.
