I don’t really like these, but every assisted pull up machine, and every cable pulldown station was in use, some 2 or 3 deep…The problem is holding form on these satisfactorily through the set.

The hinge screw on the chest-supported T Bar row device was un-done again. Maybe Loctite will help?

And in a major-ish situation… Two Sundays ago, while pulling a 35# bumper plate off the horn to uncover a pile of change plates beneath it, the 35 behind it came off too, and bounced directly into my shin. It hurt like a motherfucker, but I went on with my workout. Last week I completed 5 vest walks, a BB squat/pushup challenge, plus some RDLs - all without seemingly aggravating my injury. But after deadlifts on Sunday, it hurt as bad as the day of the injury, and I had bruising all around my ankle. I’ve laid off it the last couple days, and it has improved, but I genuinely believe I have a tibia bruise, and a good one at that. Without an x-ray to eliminate a hairline fracture possibility, the only way to know fer shure is an MRI. It doesn’t hurt when I walk, so I’m rolling with that and see if this improves. Fuck it, Chest day erry day!
