    It was 'only' 4 days as I lifted on the Monday, just didn't update as I was being lazy.

    Had an ice hockey game Saturday night, it's INCREDIBLY draining/leaves me dead the day after, so I didn't lift at the weekend All those wasted gains!

    Just incline barbell benching is my new chest workout, I've decided I hate flat bench as it's such a pain in the arse having to get a lift off during warm up sets, let alone during working sets.

    Plus, it's much easier on my triceps, shoulders, biceps, wrists and elbows.
    I know that feel I've been off since Saturday but hopefully upper session tonight. No time for legs

    Strong DB shoulder press my friend. How quickly did you progress using dumbbells for shoulder presses when you were using 15kg?

    I can't remember not having a decent press, it's always been a strong point.

    I can lift more with dumbbells because you can turn it in to an incline and you're seated. Besides the Viking press , which I love but not sure if it's doing much for my shoulders , I haven't found a shoulder exercise that works for me.

    Love benching hate pressing

    Had some RC/shoulder pain so I took some time off, and then the last few days I've been knackered from a couple of ice hockey games and ice hockey training. Back in the gym tonight for a cheeky chest workout... Hoping I haven't lost all my gains

    No OJ + 2weeks off = A weak Scoobs.

    Took yesterday off, lifted today instead. Much better than expected. Not lost too much strength at all really. Previous chest day I hit 100kg X 6 on incline, today was 90kg X 8, so no real loss. I am feeling weaker and smaller due to not lifting for so long and doses of stuff being much, much lower, but I think a lot of it is mental. I reckon in a week or so when I'm back into full swing I'll feel 100% again.

    Including warming up and stuff, just under and hour, I think.

    I'm dropping my volume down and focusing on weight and progression a little more. Plus, I don't have the same recovery rate I once did, nomsayin.
