Maximum Strength: Phase 3 Reloaded

For those of you wondering why I haven't posted my wrap up on phase 3 of Eric Cressey's Maximum Strength, here is the scoop.

About 4 weeks ago I managed to injure my forearm while bowling. I had to take it easy on my arm for a few weeks, so I decided to change up my programming entirely while giving myself the time to heal. Anyway my arm is about 80% at this point and I decided to restart phase 3 early last week. Hopefully I'll be able to wrap up with some more personal bests.

I've learned a lot as a result of this small injury and I'll try and share some of that with you in the coming weeks. Just know that I did not use my arm as an excuse to just slack off for a month. I got myself to the gym and did what I could to maintain my strength. Consistency trumps everything else. Being a slacker is never an option.
