Entry #761

ME upper

Overhead pin press:
135 x 5
165 x 5
185 x 5
205 x 4.5
215 x 2.5
> Abysmal, but that's okay. They're new, and much harder than I anticipated - harder than the standard overhead press, to me. There isn't the drive off the shoulders I can get when starting deep.
> Sticking point is high up.

Afterward, I did a set of Bradford press with 135, since I'd fallen short on sets and couldn't get up to 225 on pin press. I like them a lot. There's constant tension. I made sure not to lower too low, but I may have overdone it and gone too shallow behind the head. Set right on the ears.

Close-grip bench press:
205 x 8
205 x 8
205 x 8
> Right shoulder hurt, initially. Need a better warm-up, next time.

Weighted pull-ups:
45 x 6
45 x 6
45 x 5

Cable curls

I'm learning to balance exercises more proficiently. From now on, pulling will be on the same plane as pushing in a given session. Pull-ups today completely healed my shoulder.
