Training Log: Entry 920
SSB Squats of 395
Notes: Used a mouth guard for the first time. Helps incredibly, can't believe I waited this long to try. Really able to generate tension and regulate my breathing. First set was touchy, but buried the last 2 sets. My stance is really getting narrow compared to how it used to be, but whatever helps me move more weight.
Reverse band pin presses off chest of 225 w/minis
Pause bench of 195
Notes: Settle on the reverse band pin press. Starting off the pins from the chest removes unracking from the equation, which will take strain off my shoulder. Pin presses have no eccentric, which will help with soreness. The reverse bands give a slight pop off the chest, which also work to save my shoulders. Additionally, this really helped me nail keeping my elbows in line with my wrists, something I've been neglecting in my benching. Took my grip in a hair, and used a suicide grip. Took a ton of pressure of the shoulder, and still hard as hell. I really wish I could work on overloading my pressing, but for now, correcting mistake is my best bet.
