Rotator Cuff Exercise (on cable machine)
Face Pulls(cable machine, rope)
Overall Workout Grade:B+
Bench felt heavy today. Still hit my goal though. Was outside working all afternoon yesterday (in the now 100 degree heat)and the last day or 2 my diet has been kind of out of wack, both things that could have contributed to the weight feeling so heavy.
I've officially replaced the dips with DB bench. I really like dips. My shoulder on the other hand really doesn't like them. I will not be performing them again anytime in the foreseeable future.
Kept the weight the same on the Kroc Rows, wanted more reps. Squeezed out 1 more. Don't know if I'll keep on trying to grind out more reps or kick up the weight.
Cable pushdowns felt great. Really focused on feeling the triceps. Got a nice pump.
Same with the curls.
Did a few sets of rotator work on the cable machine. And threw in some face pulls. My shoulder is still having issues, and I'm hoping the addition of these movements along with the other 2 rotator exercises I'm doing on OHP day will help along the rehabilitation process.
