Push day

Wed, 10 May 17

Bench: 135x2x5, 185x2x5, 205x5x5
CGBP: 95x12, 115x2x12
Military Shoulder Press: 95x10, 115x8, 95x5, 65x12, 85x8
Delt machine press: 10x15, 20x15, 30x15

Bench press was a little hard at first - right shoulder was having trouble at the bottom of the movement, over the course of the sets it loosened up enough to be able to do the work sets.  Close grip work was lighter then I had hoped - I had to drop the weight considerably to get the high reps.  Military shoulder press was quite hard - I had to mess around with the weight a lot.  Finished up with some deltoid machine press work - once again, it's humbling how light this needs to be to actually get your elbows up to shoulder height without engaging a bunch of other muscles.  I'm sure I could move more if I engaged my traps and threw the weight up - but the goal is to get boulder shoulders.  My traps are "fairly" developed already due to all the powerlifting stuff.

Went back to the doctor last night and was given a different puffer - he said I have bronchitis and ventolin puffer I was taking really wasn't doing me any good.  He put me on Symbicort, which definitely provided an improvement.  I was still coughing a bit while working out, and was definitely weaker and short of breath, but overall I see an improvement in the rest of my day.
