Today was… what it was.

The lifting actually went OK, but my brain was NOT there. Had a very long day at KR Training on Saturday, and Sunday was a weird thing trying to sleep/rest but my brain didn’t want to so tho I dozed I never got solid rest. So walking into the gym this morning was very much an “I don’t wanna!” moment. I even thought about making it a “jack shit” day after inclines, but just kept going. I felt good, had a good session. But damn I’m still tired. Must work to remedy that over the course of the week.

I am always amazed at how one more rep can affect the rest of the session. I did 155 for 12 last week, and got 14 this week. But the 14th did involve lifting my butt off the bench (didn’t plan that, but it wasn’t going back into the rack without it, given I have no spotter). But that grinding took a bunch out of me. Always find that interesting.

Tried upright rows with a wider grip, sort of thing where when my upper arms are parallel to the ground, my lower arms are 90º angle. I did have to have a very slight forward lean to make my shoulder happy, but it worked alright as long as I kept that groove. It felt like there was more muscle involved and I got more out of it than narrower grips (relative to this grip). I’ll probably go with it for a while.

Just was what it was… need sleep otherwise. 🙂
