Today I did decline bench press again with my bench press buddy.  I had some mild irritation but not outright pain.  However that all changed when we tried the Cybex plate loaded incline press.  I tapped out after only two reps with only one plate on each side.  It’s frustrating to not be able to do whatever movement I want at the gym but if you don’t listen to the feedback your body gives you at this age your penalty is going to be more severe than those a couple decades your junior.
