Nothing like a scorpion sting to start the day off.

Felt something on my stomach while I was sleeping – brush it, OUCH. Scorpion. Fun! Worst part was it was about 11:45 PM; I had gone to bed early, was looking forward to a big night of sleep, but it wasn’t to be. And while I lay in bed awake waiting for the pain to subside, all I could think was: “How is this going to affect my workout?” 🙂

Answer: not very much. At least, the session itself. I really do need some sleep tho.

Benching went well. Felt strong throughout. I really enjoy the “light” BBB sets because it’s a great opportunity to work on technique, which is part of why I chose to go this route.

Upped the weight on the lat raises and that felt just right. I’m really focusing here on moving by contracting the upper back muscles — the arms don’t feel like they get as much range of motion, but the upper back does feel fully contracted (and tired). This is good. This is what I need to counter a bunch of stuff. That said, I still don’t feel like there’s enough back work in this Forver-based approach; but I will stick with it and strive to make what work there is high-quality. I wanted to try this setup, and now that I’m getting feedback I can adust from there.

Lunges. Plain and simple, I think I need to go talk to a doctor. While some things are getting better, other things are not. I struggled with lunges today, and that’s not good. (Yes, I’ve made an appointment with an orthopedic specialist).

Otherwise, things were fine. Good session.
