Foam rolled t-spine, 3x10 shoulder dislocations (especially since I messed my shoulder up on squats), 7x10 shoulder band circuit, and 2x10 med ball slams
SPEED BENCH (+60lb bands)
Fast, but thoroughly exhausting. First 8 sets were on point, 9th set was pretty slow.
CLOSE GRIP BENCH PRESS
45 DEGREE SCAPATIONS
105-10 so easy and fast, lol. Felt like I was holding a 5lb dumbbell
140-40 PR, LOL
140-20 Just to get extra work in, right hand failing due to moving from left to right too fast when I'm so worn out
Fantastic session, I feel a lot of promise in the work I'll be doing the upcoming weeks. I think this next week is my last, and then I'll take a deload. I might test after, or I'll go another mesocycle then deload and test. I need to test very soon, it's been a while. I really need to see my true bench and squat PRs since I've never really tested those except the bench, which was now a long time ago.
I just remembered, I forgot to mention that my improvements on bench form are going real well. I've reinforced engaging my upper back for effective benching throughout these DE sessions, and I'm really feeling it. Also the way I keep my elbows in throughout is really helping me load the triceps, and I now know what it means to pull the bar apart. Three years ago I heard that expression, and now it makes sense.
