EVEN though all that green means good things generally, I have to bemoan the fact that barbell overhead press still wrecks my shoulder. I couldn't make any progress, and in fact (if it weren't for the brand new location), I would have had to pinch myself. My max press - and the pain - made me feel like it was 2012 again.

I should factor in doing M.E. bench press beforehand, of course, and it's really a good thing that the bench doesn't aggravate the injury. But I gotta find out if PTC has a swiss bar, if I'm going to continue doing overhead press there. The hand position is a lot easier to deal with.

Kinda glad I didn't waste my waning energy on more work before the money set of DB overhead... again, the bench was the focus; I can't expect to break new ground in OHP afterwards. But I did anyway, this time. I am still not sure if I repped it for eight or nine... so I'm going with nine.

Deadlifts Friday night. Let's see how many of 275 I can pull.
