I meant to train this weekend but my hip and back had other plans. Spent my weekend going for some long walks in the heat to sweat and think. Something needs to change.
Incline Barbell Bench Presses
Standing Dumbbell Presses
Dumbbell Bench Presses
30 Minutes of Stretching
Comments: Pressing day comes again, second week of short-sheeting the week. Again, incline was not feeling so hot. Weight felt okay in my hands but my right triceps was trying to slow me down. Asked for a spotter to watch me on 270lbs just in case with how bad these felt. Still managed another ugly PR on these but I didn't have to re-rack mid set this time. I was debating going for a top set of 8 or just volume work for the dumbbell presses. I went with volume work and it felt good. Still getting my butt handed to me on dumbbell bench presses. Key here seems to be shoulder stability as I always seem to have an issue with my right shoulder getting loose. Happened real bad with the 120's dumbbells when I got stopped at five. I knew I had more so I had to reclean them to get two more reps. Hopefully I can continue to improve here.
