    Warm up - 500M row

    Well, I thought I'd give lighter weights and higher volume a run, but same as previous times all that volume got me was soreness in my joints. Notably my R shoulder and R hip. I've got old joints and shouldn't wear them out more than necessary.

    I'm cutting volume and increasing intensity for now. I'll see how 1 heavy set and a couple of back off sets go. I get some volume with just warm ups Plus I'll do a couple of accessory exercises as well.

    Added bench shirt - set safeties just above a 2 board press - Tried the smaller of the two shirts at my friend's recommendations. It really dug into my triceps. Don't know if I could ever get the bar to my chest. I haven't tried pulling though, just letting the weight come down. It really feels tight on the chest. Weird feeling and I don't really know what I'm doing.

    I haven't done much pressing since for me it doesn't really carry over to my benching. Since I'm in an "off season" i'll continue to drive this upward. I'm a ways off from where my press was previously, although my bench is near its all time highs.

    Alright...this has nothing to do with strength training, but I get a kick out of your thread title "Skid (Marc's) Log". Over Thanksgiving I ran across the 80"s tv show Hardcastle and McCormick. One of the title characters is Mark "Skid" McCormick. Is that by any chance the inspiration for your thread title?

    Back in the late 80's early 90's I worked on pipeline field crews and we all had "affectionate" names for each other. Knowing the guys I worked with it was likely a more derogatory reference. Nobody calls me that anymore thankfully. I just thought it was a funny anonymous way of labelling my log.
    Cheers
