Did a bodybuilding-style workout for upper-body the day after mat pulls. Incline benching hurt my shoulder but flat benching was fine, surprisingly. I tried a tactic I've heard before of isolation exercises before compounds and it gave me a crazy pump. After 5 sets of skullcrushers super-set with curls I benched 185 lbs for 8-10 reps across 3 sets (super-set with slow bodyweight pull-ups) and some behind-the-neck pressing and lots of chest flyes. Fun.

Managed to do my entire squat workout before work after getting up an hour early. Sad note: I slightly strained my back doing yoga the night before.

SSB squats

Weight felt heavy today so I did the minimum easily. Will go all out next week. Quads have been perpetually sore the last few weeks, maybe go easier on the RE day.

290 x 10

Neck crunches
Forward with band: 25, 25
Backward with 35: 10, 8
