Wanted to hit a nice, heavy double of something I haven't done before, so pretty pleased with that.

One of the problems I had when pulling sumo a couple of weeks ago was balance and physical confidence in standing in that stance when the weight got heavy. It felt daunting not having the stability of the closer stance, so I thought I'd try these out to get some more heavy lifting in. The bar was set just below knee height in conventional stance, so obviously higher in sumo. Felt pretty strong.

Lat. High Row
40x15
80x12
110x10
110x10

Had my MRI today on my shoulder, which was all in all a pretty interesting experience. Prior to that I had a dye injected into my shoulder and x-rays taken so it would allow the muscles, tendons, ligaments, etc. to appear more vibrantly in the MRI scan.

Also, my shoulders barely fit in the tube. DENCH.

Called up when I got home to book the follow-up appointment, which after a lot of fannying around on their end is now booked for the 3rd September... _ Unless they get a cancellation nearer, I'll call them again in a couple of weeks. Think I might just become a squat and pull specialist!
