Well I didn't have any high hopes for my shoulder pressing today. Either I slept wrong or had the bar off a tad doing front squats yesterday. I woke up at about 4:30am with my right rotator cuff just killing me. Pounded some ibu and it seemed to help but was still pretty stiff throughout the morning. Did a bunch of band work and it seems that it helped me a lot today.

Bench is still progressing well both on the medium days and the heavy so that's making me happy. Deadlift is another story. I think I just do to much work on these pressing days to have the real energy required to pull. I think on Saturdays I'll deadlift or do a variation and Wednesdays get some assistance work in.

I also recieved my package of steel and wraps from David Horne for his TORQUE!! bending list. Steel is calibrated and sold by David, thin suede (also from David) that's harder than IM pads, wraps touching, reverse in 30 seconds. I've got some 10mm bars in the batch and Christ they're big lol! I started with just one of the gr5's and I'll go for an 8mm next week.
