    I got it with the base. It makes it easier for someone else to use on you.

  3. Well, I did find my Beastie this morning in one of my bags, but someone in San Angelo has themselves a bitchin' extra firm RR.

  4. 12/9

    Floor Press
    230x5x3

    HS Row (neutral)
    190x8x4

    Incline DB Press
    60x12x2

    BB Curls/Pullapart Series
    85x10x3/10x3

    Tate Press
    30x15x2

    Irritated my right AC further on my last set of FP. I've iced it and took Aleve as soon as I got home. Hopefully, this will mitigate some of the inflammation tomorrow. However, I was noticing extra speed in my sets at 230, which is encouraging for the future.

  5. 12/11

    OHP
    135x8
    150x7
    150x8

    Pull-ups (neutral)
    BWx8
    BWx6x2

    Prone Incline DB Shrugs/Band Facepulls (light)
    70x15x3/15x3

    Getting back some mobility in my upper back after some good massage and shoulder dislocations. OHP felt good and I was able to go slightly heavier. I tried to do some dips, but it didn't feel right and I scrapped them. I was a tad too aggressive with the MFR around my biceps tendon and bruised the fascia. It didn't hold me back on OHP, but it was quite uncomfortable on dips.

  6. 12/13

    Incline BP

    185x5x2
    195x5
    205x8 (Ram)

    Prone Incline DB Shrugs
    75x15x3

    DB Preacher Curl
    30x8x4

    Band Ex Rotations (mini)
    15x3

    Nothing too special here. Just getting some work done and playing it safe. Some of the guys shirted up and it made me a little sad inside.

  7. 12/16

    Seated DB Press
    50x10
    60x10x2

    Inverted Rows
    BWx15x4

    BB Curls/Pullaparts (mini)
    85x10x3/15x3

    Rolling DB Ex/DB Shrugs
    40x10/70x15
    40x10/80x15

    I wanted to do some DE FP, but my AC is rather inflamed right now and it was a no go. I'm slowly working out a gnarly adhesion in the upper trap that is exacerbating the situation and causing extra tightness in the area.

  8. How did the AC joint handle the presses?

    I'm going to a sports masseuse tomorrow to have her work all the crap out in my back. Maybe that'll help mine.

    Overhead and DB presses are fine. There's no irritation as long as I remain tight in my upper back.

    This is very reminiscent of what happened to me in '10. At that time, the AC was inflamed due to internal rotation of the humerus. This is about the same thing, but its's more retraction of the humerus and less of the internal rotation. I can palpate the area and it temporarily alleviates the pain when I gently massage the area.

  11. 12/18

    WYT
    15x6x3

    Cambered Curls
    75x10
    95x8x2
    75x12-pause-6

    Seated DB Preacher Curls
    30x8x2

    DB Shrugs
    80x15x3

    Rope Pressdowns/Incline Rear Fly
    70x12x3/40x12x3

    I'm more or less hitting weak points and focusing on increasing both the ROM and strength of the RC concurrently. I did a ton of band traction prior to doing any lifting and I could feel my humerus being driven back into socket along with more upper back mobility. While it's frustrating that I can barely do any pressing outside of OHP and maybe incline, this will give me time to recharge my head and move forward in the new year.

  12. 12/22 Lower

    Box Squat
    135x3x10

    GM
    95x10x4

    Band Pallof Press (light)
    8x4

    I've never been so happy to box squat with 135 as I was today. Zero pain in the QL during the sets and I was really able to feel the psoas stretching and working during the Pallof. I did the hip mobility that was recently posted by EFS and it is a fücking godsend for anyone with hip mobility or stiffness. I usually have some clicking in my right hip, but this almost immediately cleared it up and also helped to open up the glutes to dig out some adhesions.

  13. Was that the band article that Napalm posted?

    And it's nice to see a lower day in here again!

  15. Subbed. Nice work in here Rodja.

    I'm looking into this hip article right now.

  16. Got a link for it?

    Is it the mini band one?

  20. 12/24

    OHP
    140x8
    150x8
    160x8
    140x8

    Meadows Row
    90x12x3

    Incline DB Press
    65x10x3

    Inverted Rows/Pullaparts (monster mini)
    BWx10x3/10x3

    Rope Pressdowns
    70x12x2

    Outside of OHP, I dropped the weight and focused on TUT. The EQ is making for some painful pumps and muscle contractions even on the warm up and feel sets. There was some slight discomfort in the AC during the day, but nothing significant.

  21. You've motivated me to do some real overhead work and not my baby weight. Thank you.

    Good lookin work

    No, it's a different anabolic altogether. I am concurrently using it with test, though.

    Oh, I should mention that I'm in full mass-gain mode. The goal is 240 and then trim up to ~230.

  24. Stuff my face. I really didn't stop following IF until this week. Too much hunger from the EQ to ignore in the mornings.
