Entry #273

Squatted 355 lbs for a single. Spotter remarked how deep I went. I had a good conversation with him after that. Turns out he goes to the Kickboxing Academy, and takes judo, muay thai, and jiu-jitsu. I didn't even know they had judo. Also introduced lunges in my routine in place of the lat exercise. Used the 100 lb dumbbells for 10 reps, but they were stationary ones. I would have used the basketball court or something for walking lunges, but it was taken. A couple was using it for ballroom dancing.

Went swimming at night, followed by shadow boxing at the poolside. My ride for the Academy bailed out on me. I'm going to check to see what bus stop locations are around here tomorrow so I can just go at my own leisure.

I definitely felt stress in my rotator cuff while I was swimming. I did some research and found out how essential it is to keep the shoulder blades pulled back as much as possible during bench press. Never really payed much attention to it before. I'm also going to start doing the 5 minute jog prior to lifting tomorrow for a warm-up, just to experiment. If I feel any joint-pain from benching I'll be quick to cut the session off.
