Trained biceps, chest, and rear-delts tonight and got a good pump. I've been making use of the Ironmind loading pin I ordered and it's so much better for weighted pull-ups than having to lap the plates while sitting down and fiddle with running the chain through the holes.

Weighed 224 today. I've gained a lot of weight and don't look too sharp, haha. I'll make sure to stay within range to cut to 220 for my powerlifting meet. Optimally my normal competing weight is 200 but that time is definitely not now.
Did mat pulls off 7 mats for only 5 a couple days ago. I'd forgotten to take breaks at work and my back was feeling very stiff. Also, while doing kettlebell goblet squats I discovered that that's what's been bugging my shoulder. The fix for that is easy, just do high rep bar squats.

Bench press:
Up to 355 x 1
Shoulder hurt but singles were manageable.

Close-grip bench
250 x 10, 9, 8, 8
Pain here too but I'm stupid so I kept going.

15, 20
90 x 8, 8, 8

Might do more after work, depending on if I get called in early for tomorrow.
