I HAD a balance issue when completing the 4th rep in that money set... I am pretty sure I had a fifth one in me, providing I could keep my back rigid... that really felt like the biggest obstacle, not my (clearly) weaker right side... the first set, Fatboy flew up. Flew up. I wasn't prepared for that... I took a long rest before the next set, after convincing myself that going heavier tonight wouldn't result in enough reps to really create a training response. Next week though, it's freaking on. 100 kilos, for reps. It will happen.

I forgot to warmup beforehand tonight, so did some bands stretches before the pressing got really heavy. Those four reps of the 50 kilo dumbbell were agonising, and as usual the dips were also painful. I'm positive it's nothing serious, just that particular movement is taking longer to get comfortable again. In any case, it's not holding me back in any way... it just means the weighted dips challenge I instigated last year will take a back seat for the foreseeable future.

Deadlifts tomorrow night; back to formula.
