Overhead press
172 x 3
197 x 3
222 x 3
Didn't get this last time, but today it felt easy. Lost balance a few times which seems to happens either when I'm sick or haven't slept much.

10, 10
70 x 10, 10, 10, 10, 10

Incline bench press
210 x 10, 10, 10, 10, 10
Pecs hurt at the end of a couple of sets, but not too badly. Hope I can heal while still doing horizontal pressing.

115 x 3 x 10

Band pull-aparts and face pulls

This cough and congestion will not quit, damn.


  1. Is it the full extension that hurts the pec tendon? You might consider making a ghetto shoulder saver pad to help cut down on the ROM.

  2. This has been an on-and-off issue for two and a half years now from doing one-arm dumbbell presses consistently over many months (due to dislocating my shoulder way back in 2011). I've tried everything including 3-board presses and they'll still hurt. I've been able to get to periods of being pain-free from backing off, though, which works out for strongman training at least.
