Press Wednesday: a Quarter Pain a Third of a Brain & Half Asleep

THE BATTERIES are running down and it’s starting to show. I’m needing more caffeine in the afternoon to stay awake and focussed. I was contemplating skipping tonight, but I’ve done way too much of that lately. As exhausted as I felt (and evidently was, based on my efforts under the bar), I made it in and did some work.

Something I have to probably drop is the dumbbell side raises. They aggravate my injured shoulder significantly. The pain is similar to what I used to experience when I attempted dips again, some time after the surgery. I will either have to stick to very light weights (which, after a certain point, will become pointless), or scrap it for something else.

My knees were still a little angry from my unintentionally heavy squats on Monday, so I stuck to strict pressing only with the log. My forearms have also been bugging me, but nothing serious. I couldn’t tell at first if it was tendon strain or just some timely DOMS. I also experienced a gym brain moment, and loaded a 10 on one side of the bar for skull-crushers, and a 15 on the other. I swear I held it above my head and stared it, uncomprehendingly, for way too long.

Based on how I’m feeling now, it’s 50/50 whether or not I pull tomorrow night, or leave it for events training on the weekend, and use the axle. I’m contemplating pulling from the floor with it, too. Avoid screwing around, wasting time and resources building shit out of bumper plates.
