    Good luck on the bench, getting that squared away shouldn't be too difficult.

    some kind of upright back row machine thingy?

    My left lat back area was spasming and I could barely get my breath when unracking the bar with that much band tension, that was the reason I tried the back thingy at the end to stretch it out maybe.

    Nice session. Not to disappointed cause the 315 felt manageable off the soft board but just lost my tightness at bottom. Need to focus on some heavy flat db work for awhile to bring that low board weakness back up.
