So, today was pretty awkward for me since it was a Press day. I really wanted to do some squats so I did 5 reps of 135, 3 reps of 185, 3 reps of 225 and a 315 squat lockout. It’s definitely a nice change not having to squat every workout, but I’m starting to miss them already.
Press: 5×65, 5×75, 5×80
Still pretty easy. My right rotator cuff felt it was about to pop out my shoulder at anytime.
Bench Press: 5x10x75 Right shoulder was working harder than usual. Squeezing the shoulder blades together makes the lift awkward. Elbows naturally get tucked near lats instead of flaring out.
Chin-ups: 6/4/3/2/3 – Wendler mentions that if I can’t perform at least 10 that I should be performing lat pull downs instead. I’ll go ahead and do that for bench press day.
Curls: 10×50, 7×50, 5×50 – Going to lower the weight on this. I was struggling on the second set already. Assistance should be fairly light and not hinder core lifts.
Tricep pushdown: 10×30, 10×40, 8×40: Going to stay at 30 lbs for the next pressing day.
