RECKON I might have not warmed up sufficiently, or maybe needed another workup set (or both). The first rep of my money set, my left lat seized top to bottom. I lost my rigidity and the dumbbell landed heavy on my shoulder. I pressed it again, but I couldn't lower it steadily while fighting the constriction across my back. Once I'd stretched it out and waited a few minutes I tried again. A slow and agonised single was all I got.

I'm gonna need to make sure everything's warm next week.

Made some solid progress rebuilding the right side tonight. As of now I am fairly confidant I have a strict 100 kilo overhead single in me, whether it be swiss bar, log or even axle (and I'm keen to get using the axle again too!) but I don't want to be overconfident and screw things up again. This is why all my pressing has been strict.

I will be adding more sets of things like dips and pull-ups as soon as I'm able to do more... those few dips this evening were slow and delicate. Stabilisers are still very weak.

*Forgot to do my third set of pushdowns... you were right Rory. I was slacking.
Also: your sister.
