Yes, I’m going to see someone about the pain.

The more and more I do things, the more support for the hypothesis that it is shoulder issues — not arm/biceps/triceps/forearms/elbows issues. Again, I’m not trying to hurt myself: I’m trying to continue progressing while investigating and collecting data. I mean, any doctor I’d see would want as much information as possible and would rely on whatever I could relay to them. They’d also run tests to find out more, and that’s pretty much what I’m doing.

And yes, it’s to a point where I’m going to go see someone. It’ll take a little time due to scheduling, but it will happen.

So while benching this morning the same pain slowly increased. I do not think that supersetting the pulling work is a problem, per se, but I do think that it makes the pain kick in sooner.

I am happy with how things went tho. Getting 8 @ 235 was good, despite the issues. I felt slower, more controlled, better bar path, all those good things.

But here I swapped things around. Instead of incline barbell I did incline DB work. I wanted to see how that would fare. I started very light and worked up, and it actually felt pretty good and seemed like a good alternative. I shall continue to explore this route.

Everything else was about standard, tho 1-fewer sets. Some stuff was lighter than usual because again the pain and wanting to manage it.

But all in all, things were alright today. Feeling generally on-track.
