Progress on upperbody. Lower body hanging uselessly from pullup bar as expected.

Pullups (palms facing away)
BWx6
BWx6
BWx6
BWx6
BWx6
(all reps cleaner than last session as well)

Facepulls (from higher height)
BLK+YLWx10
BLKx10
BLKx28


Facepulls are getting frustrating. My rhomboids and lower traps are just not very used to direct communication and are not very strong. It's hard for me to activate scapular depression, and scapular retraction loses "feel" after a couple reps, making it hard to verify.

My goal with pullups right now is just to improve by one rep per set or one set per session every time. So next time I'll either get 5x7 or get 6x6. I'll try to do prone cobras in some of my off days to help shoulder health as well.
