Chest day
Paid for yesterday back fuckery today, lats wre not liking flat bench at all and kept locking up
After a tip from a buddy up north that saw my 385 vid I decided to adjust my form, specifically my feet.  For some reason when I'm on my toes my feet and legs are moving all over instead of driving the bar.  So I forced my feet flat and spread them out wider in attempts of getting my ass not to rise, it still did a bit, but my feet and legs did much better, I also started playing with sinking the bar to get some extra explosion and momentum to move the bar out of the hole. When the timing was right it's great, I think I'll keep practicing it

Flat BB:
barx2x10
135x2x10
225x2x5

I somehow strained my left trap on shoulder day, probably getting the Viking press bars into position because I have to pull them off the floor and into place. It was very irritated doing presses today.


Monday is squat day, however.......one of my partners order the Rogue DL bar and it should be in today so we will be pulling Monday,  can't wait to use that thing!!! Pulling with the cheap stiff bars sucks.

For some reason it's very specific movements that are irritating the tendons.  Someone wanted to see my bench form so I did a quick set at 225 and that irritated them.  Keeping my elbows tight to my body doesn't hurt whatever tendon is inflamed.

Thanks!
It was a good time, fun...and exhausting.

6 teams showed up representing 6 gyms.  We did pretty good considering we had the biggest guys there and they cut out 3 of the strength competitions we were looking forward to.  We started with a quarter mile sprint carrying a 30lb sandbag.  I did decent on my relay portion and passed up several people.  Took forever to recover, but that may have been my fault since I drank a shit ton of preworkout, lol.  There was a tire flip event, 100lb DB carry sprint, another couple events and ended with another all out quarter mile relay sprint.  My gym finished top 2 in each event and took a couple wins.  There wasn't a prize, just bragging rights.  The gym that won was anytime fitness, which I call BS and if this was a real competition for a prize would want to see membership proof.  The 400lb sled pull and tug of war were cancelled bc the gym bringing that equipment bailed.  Anyways, it was a good time, my legs were sore AF so squats should be interesting today.

So I may have to give up sinking the bar, although I like it and it helps get some extra momentum to the bar out of the hole, it's really fucking up my elbows.   :-\

Bummer you found something you liked form wise but joints don't want to cooperate.

Gym wars sounded fun but exhausting.

Helluva chesticle day!  ;D

I would wager that 3 months of heavy dumbells and only a few sporadic sets of medium barbells will fix them right up. DB's are better chesticle builders IMO anyway, I know, not as sexy but much easier on the elbows & shoulders.
