Close Grip Bench Press

I called an end to it here, as just moving around the plates was causing my elbows a lot of distress. The log work was sub-par, but I hit some Personal Records with the rows and CGBP (my numbers are shit coz I only started close grip benching very, very recently).

Today I experienced what it feels like to overtrain. I haven't done this for many years, and it took me by surprise because I didn't think I was doing all that much. I forgot to factor in that, as the weight goes up, the stress goes up too. I was push-pressing at least 90% of my maximum on Wednesday, and I hit a new PR with the log (105 kgs / 231 lbs) the day before. It was my one and only clean-press, just to see if I could... probably might have benefitted from a warmup set or two, in retrospect.

My elbows were painful and weak for hours after I cut training short tonight. I rubbed in some voltaren and took some nurofen plus, and it's not nearly so bad right now, but I am hoping I can focus on lower body work at SM training tomorrow. Maybe some power stairs, if the weather holds.
