Upper body day. I did a little pushing, but my shoulder didn't feel great so I fell back on some machines and a little upper back and triceps work to keep me strong.

Bench press-
45 x a bunch
95 x a bunch
135x a bunch

Switch to EFS multi-grip swiss log bar-
125 x 8
215 with slingshot x 10
175 to a 2 board x 8
175 to a 2 board x 8

My shoulder wasn't feeling too hot at this point, so I decided to call it a day with the free weights.

Chest press machine-
Can't remember what weight I used. Who cares, it's just a machine anyways, but I did 2 sets with it.

Row machine-
I used the one where your hands go slightly up as you extend your arms. Again, 2 sets.

I finished up with 3 supersets of rope extensions and face pulls.

It was a frustrating day. I was REALLY looking forwards to doing some equipped benching while I had access to a real gym, but it looks like that's not going to happen. It's for the best, I guess, because having access to a full gym allows me to work around my injuries much better than I could at home. I hate machines, but you can't argue their worth when it comes to injuries and continuing to train.

Monday will be the big day. I'll be squatting in a power rack for the first time with my full gear. I'm REALLY hoping I can get a new PR on squat, but It'll be fun just to squat without having to worry about killing myself.

Whatever happens, it's going to be fun.
