Barbell Push Presses
Close Grip Barbell Bench Presses
Neutral Grip Pull-ups
28 Minutes of Stretching
Knees were super achy going into this workout. It was to be expected
with the bump up in weights for hatfield squats and yoke on Wednesday.
Took a while for the blood to get flowing in the joints. No weird calf
muscle tightness so that was good. My right pec tightened up something
fierce unracking my last warm-up. Kind of the opposite of how it felt
last week on push presses as the weight felt fine on my chest and
shoulders but was a bit slow on the lockout. I didn’t feel like the
weight was going out in front of me either. Like last time, the last
single was the best. Probably because I know the sets are done. Had to
go to the upstairs section for the rest of the workout as the only bench
I can use downstairs was in use. I mean, it is the same bench setup
upstairs but it feels different. Possibly just a mental thing. My right
shoulder and pec were tight doing warm-ups and my last one felt
unreasonably heavy. Lots of slop on the benching but I got the reps.
Triceps felt like pistons as I was able to keep grinding out the lifts.
Definitely harder than last week. JM presses after that. Elbows ached
but the weight was good and I still like how these feel. Added another
rep each set for the pull-ups. About the same until the last rep of the
last set where I started to feel a little fatigue in my arms. Stretched
and called it a night.
