    Loaded my Hobie kayak for Colorado. Lots of work on and loading of the van. Leaving tomorrow after work.
    Lake Granby CO. 8200' above sea level.
    Hopefully my walking will make a difference in the hike with kids half my age.
    Not a lot of gyms to choose from out in the sticks, looks like I'll miss my lighter workout.
    But if I "represent" on the hikes I'll be happy. I have my trusty custom trekking poles.
    Kayak is for son in law. He'll get to fish, lake trout are supposed to get pretty big.
    Also, my daughter just got a 6 QT Instant Pot, which is a pressure cooker and three way can opener.
    After reading about it, I may need one. Also, at 8200' cooking times are horrible without pressure.
    I have two round roasts worth of jerky from my new dehydrator.
    And there are rumors of whiskey....

    Not Sunday, just standard bench press. When I went to rack the last rep, I though I was taking it to the posts, but I hit the hook on one side.

    I'll probably call that a miss and repeat the weight.

    Press with Arc is part of my Wednesday workout. My shoulders seem reasonably happy, which is a big improvement. LOL.

    In this video.
    Shoulder Rehab | Mark Rippetoe

    The bar is suspended from the ceiling via gymnastic rings. The bar is at shoulder level and is pushed forward by the lifter to work range of motion.
    (Trust me Rip explains it better). Then the press is done from the top, only coming down a little at first to work range of motion.

    The "arc" part of the above is pushing the bar overhead to the modified start position for the press.

    I've had such bad luck with shoulder injuries and such good luck with this rehab, I've included some arc before I press.

    My thinking is that forcing the shoulders to stabilize this load through this range of motion "might" be preventative. It doesn't seem to hurt anything. And really gets my shoulders warmed up before the presses.

    I suspend motorcycle straps from my chin up bar on my rack. They are adjustable, but I found I need to duct tape the hooks together.

    This rehab video should be required viewing for everyone doing any kind of therapy work on shoulders. Having a history of shoulder rehab situations... and being a pretty diligent searcher... I have NEVER SEEN ANYTHING EVEN CLOSE TO AS GOOD.

    It makes me feel like my shoulders are more reliable. That may sound like a small thing, but I can assure you it is not.

    I do the arc for the number of reps I plan to press, then starting from the top, do my reps.
