Agile 8 + DeFranco’s Legs were sore as hell all day today. Squats really killed ’em good. Foam rolling was definitely painful today. Glute tennis rolling really kneaded the muscles good.
Bench Press: 5×105, 5×120, 5×135
Felt wobbly. CNS probably hasn’t “woken” up. Used powerlifter arch on the last set. I focused on flaring the elbows on the right side instead of tucking to ensure balanced work between each side.
Boring But Big 60%
Press: 5x10x60 + DB Row: 5x10x30
Presses went really well. I think I’ve finally nailed the proper technique on it to optimally press. I think naturally, my shoulders want to rotate out at the top of the lift as if I wanted to make my palms face outwards if they were open. When I did this, I felt my traps engage and help me drive the weight upwards. Not sure if this is the right way to do it, but the lift felt much easier.
Curls: 3x10x30 + Tricep pushdown: 3x10x30 + Face pull: 3x10x20
Easy work still. I’m improving form on the face pull I think. Hopefully, I can remember the feeling of the technique next time.
