In the meantime, I will be looking up zottman curls.
Thanks Vinnie!! Zottman's are kinda cool.

I would also not be afraid to make instinctive calls to adjust the last set if the next to last set had a grinder in it. Sometimes the body just doesn't want to go according to plan, but if we work with it we are still making progress. I think that is the biggest flaw in programs with prescribed numbers, like 531, in that most of us forget to consider making audible changes on the fly. Heck, I don't think I ever once did that while on 531, and I should have.
Who knows, maybe next week your body will give you that 195 and it might even feel easy-ish!
Thanks Jim! Yeah I'm normally not afraid to call an audible if I'm not feeling it, but I was hell bent on getting that BW press last night. The thought even crossed my mind during the day of just going for a 200 press lol.
My right shoulder has now progessed in severity to where my left one was over a year ago. The pain goes from under my shoulder blade to across the rear delt, trap, clavicle, and upper pec. Basically the whole right side lol. Just breathing deep hurts! I was able to heal up the left shoulder by alternating, on a monthly basis, bench and BTNP as my main press move with the other being the accessory. I may need to switch to an upper/lower A/B type of program for a couple of months.
