Bench Press: My shoulder started hurting again once I got up to 45kg. I think I'm going to skip BP for the next couple workouts and just do some weighted dips.
Elevated Rows: PR by +1. Could be cause I didn't BP as before.
Dips: Didn't add any weight cause I didn't wanna further aggravate my shoulder, but I'm happy to see I haven't lost any strength since I last went for BW dips. Gained a bit actually.
Reverse Crunches: I think I'm going to drop to 5lb next time even if I can't get 3x12.
I'm actually doing the exact same weight on Squats as you just now (obviously both deloaded), but doing 3x8 instead. I'm aiming for the same as you - I think I was pausing too much in the down position and that was putting too much pressure on my joints. Trying my best to try to keep everything tight throughout the whole exercise. I would say I need to try and control my speed (doing them real quick just now) - but that will sort itself out as we get heavy again
Sucks about your shoulder man. It's been a couple of workouts, rest it up so you can get to benching heavy again as soon as possible.
I swear we're a couple of rehab patients on squats. Feels good just to be doing them again though. Hopefully only heavy weight slows us down this time around On the shoulder, yeah I know, I wasn't expecting it to take this long to heal. But then at first I'd felt it on BP, dips, OHPs, pullups, and deadlifts so it's kind of hard to rest fully. I'm hoping cutting out BP will do it cause that's the only time it really starts to hurt again now. If not, I'll try cutting out dips too. Sucks cause my A days already feel pretty weak.
