Thoughts
-Upper body day, legs are still super sore from Saturday + TRX day, tried some exercises I've never done before, tweaked my left bicep a little with the rotating DB row, need to be more careful, didn't feel it at the time
-DB Squeeze press - 55 on this was pretty heavy, that constant squeezing motion definitely added up by the end, a keeper exercise to add to the arsenal
-Guillotine Press - Partially holding me back were the thoughts of my actually crushing my neck but the smith machine was taken up so I tried to be careful. the biggest difference between this and regular bench is that I could really feel this in the outer parts of my chest, If I was to do this again I'd either do it when I had a training partner or in the smith machine.
-rotating DB row - Eh, not a huge fan of these, just didn't like them, would not keep these
-C1 exercises - From Tom Furmans article about the Debruill effect, this was brutal, and rereading it right now I was supposed to make lesser changes in the incline
-Stretcher - done this off and on this last year and exercise I picked up from a John Meadows article, it's like a close grip pull-down with extra ROM basically.
-neutral grip cable front raise - keeper, liked the hand positioning and constant tension of the cable machine
