10-2 Mixed Doubles, Chest/Bicep
These sucked, I couldn’t get set up tight or keep the bar level. Right elbow kept moving around.

Incline Dumbbell Curls
Bench was shitty, everything else was good. My gf did well on everything, getting the elbows out a little and using the pecs more without any issues. Its fun to lift with somebody again. Even a girl.
I’ve been doing lots of machines and stuff on incline benches. When I’m “seated” and my arms are moving I can feel the left side of my back against the back of the seat. Often I feel my right side “more arched,” like my right side lower back is not straight and not against the seat. To put my right shoulder in a whack position. As I’ve been more aware of keeping my back flatter and straighter and my shoulders more level, some of my lifts have improved. Incline and overhead dumbbell pressing, pulldowns, shrugs over a bench, more vertical kinda shit.
Last night, I could feel myself pushing my whole back squarely into the seat on the inclines. But I don’t really know what was going on during flat bench. Next week I’ll use one of the bench press machines where you sit up instead of lay down. Lots of contact between my back and the bench with my ass to keep level. Hopefully I’ll just get the right feels and it will be great.
