That went quite well!

I was a little nervous because my shoulders were feeling weird – the same sort of weird that is precursor to the arm pain issues. I know what was causing it — too much “sitting up in bed” and reading. Being propped up, shoulders get rounded forward, arms not in the best position, and it contributes to the problem. So I was a little nervous things would flare up.

Fortunately no flare up. I warmed up my shoulders well, and made sure to have that crush-grip on the bar the entire time. That makes a big difference at keeping everything tight, which then helps everything tremendously.

The 220 set flew up like it was nothing, which told me I was going to smash the 245 easily. And I did. I was quite happy about that.

BTW, Kroc Rows, when you get into such high reps? They are a bitch. 🙂

All in all, a very good session.
