Climbed yesterday at the shed – it felt hard. I have not gotten stronger and the shed has not gotten easier. Although, my shoulder felt good.
I rested Wednesday and lifted the following day. This was due to a problem I noticed in my right shoulder when I woke up Wednesday. There is a sharp pain between and below my anterior and medial deltoid when I raise my arm above shoulder level. So, I went to see Kevin Brown at Elite… Continue reading Wednesday, week 2

I was pausing at the top and bottom and it completely tired me out, so much that I could not be explosive toward the end of sets. Next week I want… Continue reading Wednesday, day one
