Good day for the most part…. especially how I came home, ate breakfast, then napped for an hour. 🙂

That’s the biggest thing I’m having trouble with right now is getting enough rest. Things are getting better, I’m sleeping better, but it’s just going to take time to get back on track. Day by day.

Anyways, Pressing went well… tho I had a weird groove on the top set and almost lost the bar coming down from rep 1. It’s still with my setup. I thought I had things going in a good direction, but all day today things felt off. Press is the hardest lift for me to make progress on, but I’ll keep working at it.

Pull-ups are certainly happier on my joints than chin-ups. I’m still not going to 100% extension AND I’m letting my feet touch a little right at the bottom to relieve a little weight/stress. It’s not ideal pull-ups, but if it’s better for my joints and longevity, I’ll take the slight modification.
