My gym buddy wasn’t there this week for bench press day. It was just as well since it feels like I am in the weak portion of my monthly strength fluctuation. Just getting 225lbs off my chest felt borderline dangerous to do without a spotter. It’s part monthly cycle, part not having my training partner there and part trick left shoulder that stills feels touchy. It may also be part doing a 30 mile bike ride yesterday.
I did mix in some dumbbell flys at the end which had my pecs shaking by the time I was finished.
