    Thanks man. Getting there. Was looking for 160kg or so at the end of this program, but we'll see how we go.

    Yeah, can't remember when I didn't have shoulder problems now tbh haha.

    ME Lower

    Deadlift:
    bar
    8x70kg
    4x70kg
    2x4 120kg
    4x150kg
    4x180kg
    4x200kg
    4x210kg
    4x222.5kg PR maybe?

    GHR - 4x10 BW
    Reverse Hyper - 3x15 40kg

    Sinuses still a bit blocked up. Went fairly well. I wasn't overly happy on form. Lower back had some DOMS from bench yesterday which I never usually get. Must have been something to do with the bench height. I wasn't really timing off the floor with my hip position very well. Still, decent numbers. I should be at around 225 or 230 for a double from a deficit next ME day.

    Deload Upper

    Incline Bench Press - 4x8 60kg
    JM Press - 3x10 40kg
    Lots of rotator cuff work

    Just fucked around a bit seeing where my shoulder is at. I don't think doing incline for the rest of the program is a good idea unless there's a significant improvement before Monday. If it's feeling somewhat better I'll do a super low incline (like barely above flat), or maybe even just flat. If THAT doesn't pan out, I'll do some heavier tricep work on JM Press or something.

    Cold is hanging around. Throat feels like it has gotten worse again, but my sinuses are clearing up.

    Deload Lower

    SSB GM - 5x10 60kg
    GHR - 4x10 BW
    Reverse Hyper - 4x15 20kg

    Good mornings felt good. Nice and easy. Bit of a nothing day. Just taking it easy.

    Hypertrophy Upper

    Bench Press - 5x8 85kg
    OHP - 3x10 40kg
    BB Row - 4x10 72.5kg
    Tris push downs (different grip widths) – 4×15 20kg

    Shoulder has improved somewhat. Far from 100% though. Warmups were fine, but the first couple working sets were iffy on half the reps. Found a bit of my scap to get with a ball and the rest of the sets were no problem. The pain seems mostly isolated in my delt now instead of everywhere in the shoulder, and the referred pain down my triceps is gone. Still not sure where it's originating from though. I have a feeling it's a couple different issues though. Definitely long head of biceps and my neck. Possibly something else. Total mess haha.

    First couple sets of OHP were fine too, but the third started hitting my delt again. I think the goal for ME work this week will be just to hit something reasonably heavy and no PRs. It'd be nice if the injury clears up more so I can, but I'm not holding my breath.

    DE Lower

    DE SSB Box Squats (50s rest/med-wide stance) – 10×2 110kg + orange bands
    DE Deadlift (Texas bar/50s rest) – 8x2 140kg
    45 degree hyper - 3x12 10kg on chest, 12 x 10kg behind head
    Seated neutral grip row - 3x15 90lb
    Standing abs - 2x15

    Pretty decent day. Had to change things up for this last wave to keep me interested til the end of the program. Been feeling a bit rubbish so doing something different was good.

    Forgot to update yesterday, whoops.

    ME Upper

    Bench Press (+ 13kg bands):
    bar
    10x40kg
    5x60kg
    3x80kg
    2x90kg
    2x100kg
    2x110kg
    2x120kg
    2x125kg
    2x127.5kg
    12×107.5kg (2 board)

    Dips - 5x15 BW
    Lat Pulldown – 2×10 40kg pronated, 2×10 40kg supinated
    Band tris and bis

    Went alright. Shoulder wasn't too bad while training. 130kg would have been nice to hit, but not too surprising I didn't hit that given the injury. Still, not too far off. OHP still out, so subbed in dips.
