Overall, it was a good day. I remembered to bring a second device with me so I could video myself, then proceeded to forget to video anything. 🙂 But I did remember to bench in the squat “rack” instead of on the proper bench because I want to get used to that positioning. Mainly, get used to it, so when I try some Joker Sets and push towards 1RM’s, I can better handle fail if it comes to that point. But when I did my inclines, I used the proper incline bench. I’m going to see doing that in the squat “rack” will be more beneficial because as it is now trying to unrack really comes from an awkward position and my shoulders….
Which for all their feeling good and stronger recently, just didn’t feel it today. Maybe it was all the pull-ups, because they certainly made everything feel like crap today. Just felt really irritated at my elbow, at my shoulder. Don’t know why, but the pull-ups seemed to be involved. *shrug*
Anyways, overall I felt good. If I can crank out 7 @ 205, I feel good about striving for an all-time PR during Joker Sets next session.
