Biceps Cramp

14 March 2016

An hour or so before the workout, I got the weirdest cramp in my lower biceps/forearm, more like a muscle spasm. My arm hurt for hours afterwards and later on I could barely straighten it out. Didn't feel very good while pressing, so the triple with 320 felt a lot heavier than it had any right to be.

Bench press 320 lbs. x 3, 305 lbs. 2s x 3

Paused bench press 275 lbs. x 4, 260 lbs. x 4

There's this groove with paused bench presses which, if I hit it correctly, the weight pops up like the bar's empty. Almost feels easier than my usual touch-n-go. If I miss it, however, even lights weights start to wobble and drift precariously over my face. Guess which happens more often.

Pulldowns 5x5

Standing BTN press 155x5, 165x5, 165x5

DB curl 4 sets x AMAP

Pushdowns 3s x AMAP

Sounds like one of those weird "old guy" things. Do you take any potassium supplements?

I take magnesium daily, but no potassium. The spasm was like a Charley horse, only in my arm instead of my leg. But yeah, old guy things.
