Session Grade: 80%
Kind of a mediocre session. Shoulder wasn't feeling tip top, but otherwise not just awful. Benching against the chains was cool, made me stay tighter and felt pretty good. I suck REALLY bad at dumbbell chest work and I have no idea why. Oh well. I am also thinking I need to stop using so many row variations; go back to the big 4 that have always felt good and delivered for me (Cable, chest supported, dumbbell, cambered bar).
