Might need a day off from the gym real soon. Just milking the last drops of my energy out.

Slept in, got to the gym late, no time to warm up.

notes: yup, 10 working sets. I really shit the bed on this one though. First off, I am not used to this deep of an incline (this was a fixed bench), so my shoulder was a little tweaked by the whole experience. Then my wrists kept pinning back, I couldn’t keep them straight. I also didn’t have my wrist wraps with me, so I just kept focusing on my form, stopping a set when I couldn’t keep my wrists straight any more. bullshit.

notes: I stopped a set here when I started leaning back too much. I got some good cues from the rest of the club, my glutes weren’t staying tight and it was resulting in the lean back, and then I wasn’t pushing my head through on the ascent, and was instead staring at the bar and only pushing my head through at the end. Still, better than last week.
