    Who do you see for your shoulder/pec? I just went to a chiro that's ART and Graston certified. It made a huge difference. I'm an idiot for not doing it sooner.

    If I don't see my friend at New Dimensions (link in my sig), then I'll go see a chiro that's certified. I had my left side done and it was amazing.

    Today I trained at Gold's Gym and it was a good change. I haven't been in so long, and that bitch was packed, lol. This week was the last of all my heavy training for the meet. Next week i'll be on cruise control. I went yesterday and had some work done on my pec, and right now it's pretty sore. I'm still not sure what i'm going to do, but before the meet, I will be attempting a planned opener so I have an idea.

    Nice easy accessory day, Bri. You look after that chest!

    Also, since seeing them in your log, I've been doing JM Presses quite regularly.

    They hurt!

    Brian, I have a feeling you might still get a PR bench come meet time.

    Good to hear the pec may not hold you back too much! Here's hoping it feels sweet by then. Enjoy the deload B!

    I hope not, it's more a mind game. But I need to stop thinking about it and just roll with it. Thanks!

    It felt so good to not have to deadlift, lol. But, it was also difficult for me to go and train, because I knew I wasn't deadlifting...make sense? Not much more to say, I got a couple more training sessions before this cycle is complete. My planned opener for the deadlift is going to be 672.2lbs/305kg. I feel confident with this opener because I was able to double 675 in two different training sessions, and it was after alot of volume. My bodyweight this morning was 249 and that was with sweat pants on and after a weekend of eating ribs

    BP-DELOAD-sort of

    Last bench session before RUM6

    Bench press
    Barx20
    95x10
    135x10
    185x5
    225x3
    275x1
    315x1
    365x1
    385x1...Possible opener
    225/2x10

    Pressdowns
    70/3x15

    JM presses
    135/3x10

    Facepulls
    70/3x10

    ****************************************
    OK, I decided to bench and see how my pec was going to hold up. Everything felt pretty good, but I know it's not 100% yet. To play it safe, I moved my grip in just a hair. I was actually able to get tighter then when I bench POR.

    Anyways, my plan was to open around 405-410 before my injury. But now i'm planning on 385, which isn't that far off. I'll just see how it feels and aim for a PR on my 3rd.

    I ended up dropping down to 225 and got some work in to put more blood in the muscle.

    Maybe I can still end up with total PR, we'll see!!!!!
