Visiting family in California for a week, possibly two (hopefully the former). Continuing 5/3/1 but on regular equipment. Shouldn't mess with the progression I have going too much since I'm deloading next week anyways. Lifting at my old gym.

Bench press:
220 x 3
250 x 3
280 x 8

Cool PR. First time benching with a barbell in almost a year. Great carryover from the unwieldy Swiss bar. I almost felt like I was using a machine. I can definitely tell how much better the Swiss is for shoulder health, though.

I was stoked about this.

Pause bench + Fat Gripz:
195 x 4 x 10
185 x 9
> Conversely, this seemed harder with the FG than a Swiss bar. Wrists just felt more wobbly. Really weird.

Seated cable rows:
200 x 5 x 10
> Since I'm in a fancier facility I can actually use cable machines that aren't garbage. Still doesn't make up for lacking my SSB, though.

Cable pressdowns and dumbbell curls

No powders here, so post-workout I ate steak, pizza, orange juice, V8, and milk. Need to go shopping.
