This was good.

Everything going up. Which is interesting, because usually around this point in a cut cycle is where things start to plateau and/or I go down. So I’m pretty happy right now… well, with progress. My weight continues to be strange; been talking with Nick @ Renaissance Periodization about it. TBD

Inclines continue to be strong. The AMRAP+50% sets just keep going up each week. Good sign.

DB Bench. Went up in weight, but also in form. I really let myself sink into it at the bottom, get a stretch, then explosive up. Still keeping tempo so that the eccentric is a 2-3 count, sink in, explode up. As much as I hate DB work, I cannot deny the pump.

Machine flies were funny. I find that on this machine it’s very easy to lose posture, so today I really exaggerated and that was good. It kept my torso, head, neck, etc. all where they should be, which really increased the properness of the movement. I dug it.

DB presses, went up in weight, and that too I also made sure I sunk down at the bottom and wasn’t cutting it off too soon.

Lat raises, I continue to improve posture for that — the more I keep truly straight spine (from top of my head all the way down), keep my chin tucked in, it sure makes my shoulders happier (and the movement tougher). And as soon as I finished the 3rd set, immediately to the 10# plate for as many front raises as I could muster. Lost count, but whatever as that’s not really important.

But really, good day. Good day.
