Double down

Bench felt pretty good today! I moved ME Bench back to Monday, and for once, there was no one on any of the benches! Hooray. I got some good doubles in, so I am confident it'll start coming back soon.

I also started working in some more grip work, to get my grip strength back. A lot of my farmer walks and deadlifting have been failing due to failed grip, so it's time to start paying more attention to that.
