    Up too late, already realizing that the workout today will therefore suck royal.

    BBB on deadlifts is tough, I did 4 x 12 at 135lbs and was absolutely spent by the end, was particularly weak off the floor. Hopefully, this somehow helps my working sets.

    I hate to break up this circle jerk but I got an actual question. Weird, I know:

    So last night I was doing overhand grip cable rows with a straight bar. After retracting my lats I felt a weird pulling/tightness at my collarbone. Never felt that before. It only happened when I'd retract and then pull back. Any amateur doctors know what that is?

    Happened to me before. Probably strained your acromion. Just take some ibuprofen and ice it on and off for a few days.

    Your pain was on the front part of the collarbone near where it connects to the sternum (right at the base of your neck)?

    Okay guys, question for ya'll. I've been plateaued on pullups for a while now. My goal has been to do 25 consecutive and I've been stuck at 20 consecutive for about 4 months now. I switched to weighted pullups in the hope that that would increase my bodyweight max reps, but it hasn't made much of a difference(though I am getting better at weighted pullups now). Here's my current pullup routine that I do twice per week:

    First set: Body weight x10
    Second set: 25 additional pounds x10
    Third set: 35 additional pounds x8
    Fourth set: 45 additional pounds x6
    Fifth set: 70 pounds as many times as possible(usually 2-3, most I've gotten is 4)
    And then I end it with a body weight max reps

    Again, I've been doing this for a while now. The other related exercises I do are T-bar rows and I usually end my back days with some basic barbell bicep curls.

    Any suggestions on how to improve my bodyweight max?

    If all you're trying to do is to do 25 in a row then what you should be doing is as many as you can do in a row. Each time you have to push yourself further than last time, whether it's a half-rep, full rep, or two reps more.

    Eugh just ate the most disgusting tuna melt. Consisted just of bread, cheese and 2 cans of tuna. Usual tuna melt had tonnes of olive oil, mayo, spices, tomatoes and peppers. This was just cold and dry and didn't taste of anything. May just buy a blender and blend everything.

    Also how to eat canned tuna in non tuna melt form that isn't cold? Cannot eat cold food.

    Well there's always this. You'll have to see if that's at the PX the next time you go. There's always tuna noodle casserole (another American classic from the era of throw shit in the pan and bake it).

    What about frozen tuna steaks? Even the crappy ones are pretty good when seared.

    Damn. Cold food is good. Easier to eat.

    tuna, mayo, bread (with cheddar if so inclined)
