Woke up on Monday with an unholy spasm in my lower back.  It's mostly gone now, but i haven't done much since because I don't want to mess my deadlift routine up too much. Did, however, bench last night:

 

Bench:

 

WU

365x4 - PR, I guess

365x3.5 - spotter helped me finish the 4th

315x3 CG, paused

315x3 CG

315x3 CG

 

365 x 4 is a PR, but my 4x4 went to hell so I'm not too enthused.Progress seems to be slowing down a bit so I'm going to drop back to 345x5x5 and start over from there.

 

V-bar pressdowns:

 

140x20

197.5x15

197.5x10

197.5x7 lol

 

dumbbell hammer curls:

 

Haven't done these in months so I was happy with how easy they felt. Probably the weighted pullups doing their thing.

 

70x10

70x10

Back to the grind:

Bench:

Worked up to 375x3. Wasn't going to do this but some kid I hate with a righteous passion was squatting singles at the platform next to mine with 355 so I just did this to be a douche.

Deads:

435x5x4

First time pulling since my PR. Felt pretty easy.

DB rows:

120x3x12

Cable pullovers:

120x3x10

Starting the Russian bench routine again. Today was my "light" day. Russians have a funny concept of what light means. This did feel a little on the heavy side though since my shoulders still felt beat up from Monday.

 

Bench:

 

345x6x2

Just basing it off of my max this time. Not cutting this time around so I'm hoping that makes up the difference.

Also, I've been having a rough bout of golf elbow in my left arm for the past few months. I started taking orange triad about 3 weeks ago and it's completely cleared up. Could have just cleared up on its own, but my joints and tendons in general have felt awesome despite going pretty heavy and doing a lot of things that should have aggravated it lately. Just based on that I'd give it a thumbs up.
