One more before the world ends?

I never lift on Fridays, ever, but I figure if the rapture is coming I may as well get one more workout in.

ME Upper

A1. Mobility

Leg Swings
Squat Pulls
X-Band Walks
Int/Ext Rotations
Band Scapular Pulldowns

B1. 10 minute Bench w/ 20# Chains (timed)

8 x 45#
8 x 95#
5 x 135#
3 x 185#
8 x 205# + 2 chains (3,3,1,1)

My pec strain flared up a bit on the last 2 sets, which is why they were singles. I iced it down after the session and now it's just sore. I can still fight the demons tomorrow.

C1. 2" Grip BB Rows

16 x 155# (4,3,2,3,2,2)

D1. OH Push Press

6 x 1 x 195#

These were hard, but it was a PR for volume on push press.

E1. Plate Holds

3 x 20s x 45# plate

Overall it felt good to get this session in after a long week. My pec strain is still a little bothersome, but I got through the pain- nothing a little ice, heat and a stiff drink won't cure.
