Chest/Shoulders - Wednesday, February 2nd, 2022

Location: HT Fitness
Workout Time: Approximately 650am

This morning I was up at 3:25am to prepare for online training @5am. From there it was complete some work tasks, eat my pre-workout meal, and off to the gym.

Warm-Up:
Hook Lying w/ Alternating Leg Extensions (i.e. to set core and breathing) - 4 reps ea.
External Shoulder rotations w/ floor slides - 5 and 5 reps
Quadruped T-Spine Rotations - 6 reps ea.

Flat Dumbbell Press
1x12x35s
1x8x50s
1x8x65s
1x8x80s
1x8x90s

These felt very good given the fact that I had irritated my left shoulder and had to back off of pressing the last couple months.

Incline Barbell Press
1x8x135
1x8x155
1x6x165

*2-second pause @ bottom of ea. rep

Incline Pronated Flys
3x12x22.5s

'Stretch' Pushups
3x12/10/8

Rear Deltoid 'Swings'
3x30x30s

Dumbbell Lateral Raises w/ tube band
3x12x5s + 1x12x5s (drop set)

This is the best that my (left) shoulder has felt following a true push workout in some time. Backing off of the intensity and getting my body correct has helped immensely. Lesson learned-you should be waving the intensity up and down periodically within the training program.
