I just did upper body tonight, and also did some body weight squats. It hurt quite a bit though, so I didn't even bother putting the bar on my shoulders.
I was in a lot of pain earlier today though, people kept asking me what happened because I was walking like an old man haha.
Oh well, I'll see how I feel on Thursday. It already feels better tonight.
