07-28-2014 Training Day

For the last couple weeks I brought my hands back in closer while squatting because I prefer them in that position, as I am sure the vast majority of us do. Hoping that the mobility work on my shoulder is paying off so I can continue to do so without my bench being affected by shoulder pain.

I am not so happy to say that isn’t the case, today I shut my bench down after 315 because I felt the aggravation creep into my elbow. Instead of fighting it off and ruining an entire session, I stopped pressing and did some pump work to get something in.

Looks like next week it will be back to hands wide on squat day. Its nothing I can’t work with, but I am accepting the fact that I have to keep them in that position or run the risk of injury down the line.
