Today was good. Set a nice rep PR, tho I did have some irritation of my arm pain.

The thing is, I don’t think the inclines necessarily were the source of the pain. For whatever reason, squats have started to cause the pain to flare up again. And then today, I wore elbow sleeves. What I think the issue may be? Acute angles. That is, having my arms really “in” during squats, that elbow angle? pressure. The sleeves? It adds thickness. Angle. Pressure. It’s just a hunch right now, but given what I’m expericing it feels like a good hunch.

I also went ahead and followed the 5/3/1 rep scheme. It wasn’t intentional – it’s just habit. It started down that road, so I just went with it. I was going to start that next cycle anyways so NBD.

All in all, things are feeling good with this modification. Just going to keep on truckin’.
