B3. Ring Dips: 3 x 25, rest 5 min (unbroken x 3)

Notes: Felt pretty good waking up this morning, but I knew in the back of my mind how bad today's workout would hurt.  Front squats felt good today, and my legs felt surprisingly good.  I was able to hold tempo for all sets without failures.  Hitting these weight while I am also doing tons of aerobic and muscular endurance volume is a good sign.  

Back squats continue to be painful.  I was able to get 25 in my first set, but from there, there was too much quad fatigue and the higher reps just wouldn't budge.  Pullups were brutal as they always are.  I brought my grip in slightly and it helped with keeping the shoulders in a good position and I didn't have much trouble with my grip until the last set.  On this one, I just held on for dear life and tried to block out the pain in my grip and biceps.  Afterward, I was in a heap screaming for the pain to stop.  I felt deathly nauseous for about 20 minutes afterward, and then just regular nauseous for another 30minutes after.  I am hoping this work that I am doing will pay off.  It is so painful.
