I had felt better going into this week, at least I did in the morning
before I found out I had to cover someone else at work. So unexpected
stress ahoy haha. Despite that, I did feel “not-destroyed” starting
things off. Not sure why so many people are in the gym now but I had to
wait even longer for the power rack but I didn’t want to be there until
closing so I did more warm-ups and took my time. Warm-ups were done on
tiered squat rack so essentially half squat and then pressing. The
weight went up ok on the first rep for the push press triple but I got
off balance locking out the weight so the second rep suffered. I let
things settle for the third and threw that one up better than the other
two reps. Speed sets stayed strong the whole session but I was sweating
profusely. Circus dumbbell after these. Warm-ups again for this was the
empty bell but I added a little weight to it. Less mistakes for this
session though I did have a misfire on the first set with my right and
the last set with my left. Warm-ups felt heavy on dips but I kept going.
Getting hard again. Pull aparts are almost back to a comfortably level
of difficulty. Again, first set of standing tate presses felt like the
odd man out. I lost count on the last set so good thing I film these
haha. Could feel the heat radiating off of my triceps by the end.
Adjusted the bands for scap work and it was still easy other than my
hands slipping due to sweaty palms. I finally just went and put a metal
pole through the band loops and pulled that. May use that in the future
though it did seem to “tug” my right biceps. Stretching and burritos.
Puts this week’s total of burritos at six.
