Deload ME Upper: I don't "got muscle" but I sure "got deload."

Background: I work at OSU as a graduate teaching associate and lift at Ludus Magnus. I am a raw lifter who competes in the 105lb weight classes, and am currently prepping for my next meet (when grad school finally gives me a weekend off) . Currently, I am in the process of trying to accomplish my lofty lifting goals,survive graduate school, and teach undergraduates about what I really love, TRAINING..

I'm currently in massive work-aholic mode. It must be starting to show.  On Saturday my mom called me and said it looked like I had been benching (LOL) but not squatting after a picture of me surfaced on facebook.  Then, yesterday we got this massive snow dump, and the wind nearly knocked me out.  So, moral of the story, apparently I "don't got muscle." In fact, I  just "got deload". Grrrr.
