Notes: Trying out Martin Berkhan's take on reverse pyramid training. I hate it. Sets with rep counts past 5 give me terrible soreness a couple of days later. My back is still sore from Friday's workout, to the point that I'm not sure I should even lift today. I'm sure this works for some people, but I'm not on that list.

Time to consider new programs, so here are my candidates:
The Texas Method
Reverse Pyramid with the Big 3
If I go with the Big 3, I may just drop bench press and do the standing press exclusively for awhile. Benching at any kind of real volume seems to tweak my golfer's elbow, and re-injury would utterly suck.
