Bench Press day. 3+ day, PR, Jokers, FSL.

And man, that was a lot of work.

Jokers are pretty cool. It’s not about killing yourself, just pushing a little harder, a little further, and challenging yourself. I’m liking it. I won’t use them often, but they do have their place at times.

But it was a LOT of work. By the time I got to my FSL sets, I was dead. It was bad tho, because I slacked off on tightness and crush-gripping the bar — not good for technique, nor my shoulders. I doubled-down on my mental cues and focus, but it’s something I just have to be mindful of — it’s exhausting.

All in all tho, a lot of work, and a good day. Benching went well. Back work was welcome. I did add in some hammer curls because I do think I need some direct biceps work for health of the tendons there — they felt better afterwards.
