    Did dumbell pullovers today.
    Hoping to stretch out my shoulders, lats, and triceps.
    Getting a serious tricep pump after performing these, that was a bit unexpected.

    Week 25
    Wednesday's workout
    Squats: 225.5 lbs (102.5kg), 3 sets of 5
    OHP: 136.4 lbs (62kg), 5 reps, 132 (60kg), 5, 5 (Deloaded)
    Deadlift: 275 lbs (125kg), 5 (Deloaded)
    Lat pulldowns: 200 lbs, 5 reps
    Seated rows: 200 lbs, 8 reps

    Injured shoulder is really getting me down. It might even be a fractured rib, or torn trapezius muscle, no idea. It's been 10 days with no improvement.

    Bloody bench press has gone backwards from last workout, so added some additional sets at 100kg for punishment.

    No improvement with shoulder.

    Going to do another deload on a bench again, but this time do something very different.

    Looking forward to seeing what you do for bench. It looks like you are still pushing for 5s. Have you thought about switching to triples?

    The plan was to reach my goal of 3 sets of 5 at 100kg, then run sets of 5 with back offs to record a true 5 rep max, then go to triples.

    This next deload and ramp up will go for 3 weeks, starting tomorrow.
    I don't think I've seen anyone try this around here, it will be much more frequency and volume. I'm curious to see how my body responds to it.
