Entry #1174

Stayed up all night to reset my sleep schedule. Thanks to my discovery of Diet Coke this didn't seem to affect my training performance, including joint pain.

Swiss bar bench press:
230 x 3
250 x 3
280 x 5
> Some aching on preliminary sets that got better the heavier I went. Didn't want to push past 5, although I was probably good for 7. As the weights increase week-by-week I'll be especially vigilant in monitoring my condition, which seems to be improving at least. Despite being tired and taking 4 days off the barbell felt like air. Caffeine or am I just stronger?

Swiss bar incline bench:
150 x 5 x 10 

Pendlay rows:
225 x 5 x 10
> Taking a break from unilateral rowing so I'm not supporting myself up with either arm, thereby stressing my pec-delt tie-ins even more. But wow, this felt great with a sumo stance. 

45s x 8
40s x 8

Swiss bar preacher curls:
87 x 10, 8, 8
> The best bicep exercise I've ever done. Emphasized the eccentric for hypertrophy, something I did with skullcrushers too. 

Rear delt flyes:
20s x 20 

External rotations:
10s x 12 

Goddamn does it feel good to be in the sun again.
