Every Muscle Is CryingThere is not a single muscle in my whole back that is not crying from this lift. I need two or three days rest before I lift 40 pounds 40 times in the military press style. All my muscles are shattered.
With 40 pounds I started and with 40 pounds I will end. I will do the military press 40 times.
