And the first day of pressing is in the books.

Man, I really missed pressing. And I’m hoping it’s going to be good for my shoulders too, given the work and what’s involved in doing a proper press.

I do think I need to up the bent-over raises a bit. And man, I feel like I need more back work. I am not ready to adjust the program yet, but it’s on my mind.

Lying triceps extensions — these are the kind where your head is off the bench and the bar goes up over your head towards the floor. It’s not a skullcrusher to your forehead, it’s a larger range of motion. Still finding the right weight for it.

Anyways, not a bad start for a first week on the new program.
