    Being awoken by a blow job...

    err, umm

    I did 160 for 6 reps on my last set after doing heavy squats (well, heavy for me). Not sure how much I could do if I were just doing GMs fresh.

    That would then make it a bad morning, but a bj would possibly still overcome that.

    165 for 5-6 is about where I'm at for working out. I'm sure the numbers could go up, but the form/volume would suffer.

    I've got a general question about good mornings. I tried them for the first time a week ago and put just a 25 on each side, so a total of 95 pounds and did the two sets of 8 quite easily. My question is do you guys just do it with a normal barbell, and do you use a sting/manta ray pad? Maybe it's just because I'm not used to them, but it seems really awkward to do with a lot of weight. I'm just worried about the bar rolling too far down my neck or something.
