Feeling solid today as I come off the Deload week, but the wrists are feeling all the axle work. Hit a solid 10 @ 125#, then did a round of speed work with the log 10@ 90#. But, my wrists were fried from the axle and I didn’t have the stabilization to press the CDB. I was all over the place with it on my top set so I bailed. It was easy at the same weight on Saturday, so I’m not too worried. Going forward, I’ll do the CDB first.
I did some bodyweight skulls which felt pretty good, but the elbows were a bit sore. I may put in some other triceps movement for volume instead of these.
The scap retractions felt great. I want to keep my shoulders nice and healthy, so I put those and the 3 way shoulder raise back into the program this cycle. I finished up with some barbell rollouts. Feeling good that I can do these unassisted now.
For my finisher, I did a rope jack & rope conditioner. It was easier than I remember.
