Thoughts: Nice upper body day, sometimes these clusters just seem too easy even though the set of 6 right before the cluster is tough, the pullovers is subbing for a heavy horizontal pull and the flyes is just to warm my chest up, after that pec minor strain last year I'm taking no chances. That strain knocked me out for a almost 2 months for pressing.

I've been reading a lot of Charles Poliquin's stuff lately on FB and after this training cycle I might test myself to see if my upper body is structurally balanced (according to him).
