Since I'm less than 9 weeks out from my next full meet in September at Rivercity Barbell in Newport, Ky, I figured it was time to test my shoulder a little bit. Despite some pain and discomfort I still felt pretty strong. I'm hoping to put together a pretty decent total PR in this meet and if my shoulder holds up I should be able to hit a bench PR.
Bench Press (all reps to the chest)

My shoulder definitely still hurts, but I still feel pretty strong. So, for now my plan is to just tough it out and see what I can do.
