Somehow even though the gym was quite busy I managed to find an open Smith machine.  I actually got on the new one that has it’s track going at a slight angle instead of straight up and down.  I had been wanting to try it out.  I got on there for my bench pressing and it went ok however the constant shoulder pain is a reminder how I should probably scrap most chest pressing movements for the foreseeable future.  Despite the mild pain I felt pretty strong.  My only miss was with 240 pounds on the bar and I did that rep SUPER slow.  If was more explosive at the bottom I am pretty sure I would have gotten it.
