DOMS is real. 🙂

I continue to be fascinated by how the day after a new/intense workout I’m sore, but then 2 days after I’m REALLY sore. Going into today was just painful. Note: these sessions are basically full-body workouts, so everything was sore.

But you go through it, because doing the work will make things better overall.

Really, these press days are like a rest day, compared to the squat days (and I’m pretty sure deadlift days too). It’s work, but worlds apart.

Inclines were OK. None of my usual arm pain. I did notice on the heaviest sets that I had a weird pain in my left hand around my thumb — the sort of thing where thumbless grip would have alleviated the pain, but like hell I’ll bench thumbless. Using wrist wraps helped. Interesting.

But otherwise, it was just another day on the program. I expect tomorrow to suck. 😉
