A little is too much, 21

seated-single-dumbbell-extension-2[1]My bench press buddy was at the gym today.  He was doing some benching and asked if I wanted to see how 185 felt.  I could move the weight ok but immediately had that unsettled feeling in my left shoulder.   I racked the weight after 5 reps, unwilling to further aggravate the shoulder. The odd thing with the injury is immediately after benching is I went over to the nearest wall and did a set of belly to wall handstand push ups without a big issue.

I also crossed the 20 pull up plateau for the first time in months, grinding out a 21st rep to start the workout.  Consistency pays off.
