Bit of a change-up today, adding.

I want to add a little more work, so today marks a good day for doing so. I felt really good and it manifested in a really good session.

First, added DB flies. I didn’t want the pec deck, nor the funky way Polquin suggests to do flies (always was weird on my shoulders). I wanted straight-up traditional flies. This proved more than I expected, because the bottom part gave me this awesomely painful stretch — I really need that. I do some stretching of the shoulder/pec area to help out with stuff, but this hit a stretch that I can’t otherwise hit and I was surprised to discover how tight I was. I found myself resting in the bottom position for a second or two with every rep to really let the stretch settle in. That alone makes the movement worth it.

Second, I’m starting to feel like the final delt work will be some sort of raise: front, lateral, or rear. Nothing crazy, just a bit of work. So today it was lateral raises, but there was some weird twinge in the top of my traps. I had to be mindful of how I moved to avoid triggering it.

But all in all, good. day.
