Later in the evening I foam rolled both legs, glutes and back, followed by a static stretching session for the legs, glutes, chest, and triceps.

NOTES:
My left shoulder started bothering me yesterday so I did some rotator cuff exercises followed by stretching also. Going to take some NSAIDS and ice tonight before bed and judge how it feels tomorrow through out the day. Had no problem with any of my lifts today though. More so a nagging pain that occurs occassionally.
Overall good deload and already anxious to get back into the groove of lifting heavy.
