A little more bench today.  Just worked up to 225.  Still babying the shoulders.  One set.  Was going to rep out, but felt a tiny twinge in my right shoulder on rep 4 and a little bit worse on rep 5.  The way the weight felt, I knew I wasn't getting more than a couple more reps anyway, so I shut it down after the 5th.  Bar was moving slow.  It was nasty hot and humid in the shed and I just didn't have any pop.  Of course, it's only my 3rd bench workout in a long time so not sure what I was expecting.  Lol

Nice to know the shoulders can still press 2 wheels for reps.  I may never bench over 300 again, but I can live with that.  Going to dial the weight down to 205 next session and see if I can get 10.

I don't think mine are much better. Remember I took a year away from standard benching due to my shoulder as well lol

Fun day.  Jedd and I met halfway at Paul Linn's gym in Harrisburg PA.

Since I hadn't touched a 2 3/8 axle in over 10 years and had never touched a saxon bar or an fbbc anvil, it was nice to play with them and get some experience.   I think I got 310 on the axle (300 thumbless), 245 on 2.5" saxon (stopped there because my thumb skin started to tear slightly)(Jedd got 285), and 231 on fbbc anvil.  Then we had a lift off with the shallow dubhub and tied with 70.7.

Pretty beat up from yesterday's marathon training session with Jedd, but I had to try the new Inch trainer he lent me.  Put some tape on the loading pins to keep the plates from spinning freely.  Still doesn't have quite the rotation of a real Inch.  

I got 3 lifts all about 2/3 of the way up with 172.  As sore as my forearms were, I'll take it.  With a couple days rest, I think I'm good for this and maybe a few lbs more.

Benched 205 X 10 with 0 pain.  That was nice.

Then hit the Inch trainer.  Lots of Gorilla tape on loading pins keeps the plates from spinning.  Took me 30 minutes to get the plates on the damn bar.  Lol

Anyway got my first full lifts with 172.3. 

Then did some rows with it.  127.5 x 8 rt and 4 lft.

Back day.  Was disappointed with the rows, but I was pretty torched from the axle deads.

Haven't done anything for several days.  Wife had a bit of a medical emergency so was at hospital most of the time since Saturday.  She's back home now, so will get back at it in the next day or two.  Guess I wasn't eating much.  Lost about 8 lbs.  Whatcha gonna do....

My gym (or the rest if my life) is certainly no example of tidyness but looks like your shed could use a recycling bin😉

Finally got a chance to get out in the gym.  Horrible grip workout.  But 80% humidity and 8 or 9 days off probably don't help.

Did test my max strict curl afterwards.  Pretty happy with a new PR.  My goal has always been 150 on these.  I suck at curls so I will take this as a huge victory.

Shoulders felt decent so I benched a little.   I haven't done any heavy singles in ages (and still haven't 😂) but I did work up to a single with 275.  I wasn't thrilled with the speed, but it did go up fairly smooth without any stalls.  That's the first time I've tried anything over 225 in ages, so I'll take it.  Not a ton of pain but feeling it this evening a bit.

Shoulder prehab.

Bench: Bar X 20, 95 X 10, 135 X 8, 185 X 3, 225 X 3, 250 X 1, 275 X 1, 185 X 12

2.5" Titan Handle up to 186 righty PR and 161 lefty.

Dumbzilla holds.

That’s really impressive benching for never getting to really train it!

Thanks buddy, but let's keep this in perspective.  That's my bodyweight and you could do it for a set of 15!  😂
