I will have to change some things up.

My shoulders were fairly happy through this session and all things were running well… until the JM Presses.

Everything hated life.

Before I give up on them, I think instead of getting right into them I need to ease/warm into them. You’d think with so much preceding work things would be fine to just jump in, but no. So next week I’m going to try that: bar, very light weight, then work up to my working weight/sets. If that works, great. If that doesn’t, I’ll probably have to scrap JM Presses until my shoulders feel better.

I also tried doing the pressdowns as 100’s. Didn’t work well enough. I opted to use a bar instead of the ropes, but forgot to compensate for the weight, because that bar on that pulley mechanism basically ends up acting like a counter-weight, so the weight on the stack isn’t quite the same resistence. It’s hard to judge how much weight would be ideal for 100 reps, and I probably should have put an additional 10# on there. Oh well, live and learn. I will say my lats got really sore from having to hold my body rigid for 100 reps — just one long isometric hold. 🙂

Ah well. A reasonable session overall. Learned something; can’t complain.
