This was good. Nice rep PRs. Arm pain is minimal. Slight adjustment to continue to see what I can do towards my arms.

So inclines I think continue to be a fair substitute while I deal with the arm pain. Yes intensities are still quite light, given the rep PRs I’m setting, but start light is the way to go. I am switching back to proper 5/3/1 rep schemes now (from the prior Paul Carter-esque 5/4/3/2/1 scheme), all to see how small changes affect things. I didn’t wear elbow sleeves today, but still had a bit of arm irritation. So it’s really tough to call if the sleeves are in fact a help or a hindrance. Will just have to keep experimenting. That said, it’s not like knee sleeves. That is, when I don’t wear knee sleeves I do feel a difference — my knees are much happier with the sleeves on. But without the elbow sleeves? I’m not noticing much of a difference either way, but then, the ache issue gets involved so it’s hard to tell.

I continue to enjoy flies, not so much for the fly itself but the stretch it gives. That’s what I’m trying to really emphasize here more than anything.

To that, I’m also trying to really emphasize the stretch and as full a range of motion as possible on the French Press. Quite enjoying it.

And I called an audible today. Instead of doing 4×15 reverse curls, I opted to just do 100’s of wide-grip EZ bar curls. Doing 100’s right really puts a lot of blood in the area, and if that might help with making things feel better in that area well, I’ll give 100’s a shot for a little while.

Decent day. Happy with it.
