That felt more like it.

Last week I didn’t feel like the plan I set out was good enough. I just didn’t feel I got enough of… anything: enough shoulder work, enough triceps work. So I made some adjustments for today.

I lowered the weight on the BNP to try to get more reps.

I added 3×8-12 of Arnold Press.

Those two things there felt like the level of work I wanted.

On the upright rows, I dropped to just 3×8-12, as I then added in lateral raises 350-method. And all of that, felt right.

On the bench dips, I started out rather slow — everything was tight due to some things with Tuesday’s bench day (something got really tight in my left upper trap after dips). So I started out going really slow, working down into position, letting it stretch, and preferring to do less so I didn’t hurt anything. Last 2 sets tho I felt better for, so I just cranked through them. Still didn’t rep out, which is ultimately what I’d like to do with this movement, but until my shoulder feels right with it (which is part of the point of doing it), just taking it easy.
