Due to a family emergency my workout was interrupted this morning. I had just finished my feeder sets on my bench press and was getting ready to do my working sets when I had to run to the ER. I ended up missing two meals in a row and my energy this afternoon suffered a bit, so the progressive overload numbers went down a bit. Chalk another one up as a loss. This is starting to get old.

Incline dumbbell fly (4) warm up sets
Bench press (4) feeder sets, 365 lbs x 11/315 lbs x 7/275 lbs x 5 (15 breath rest pause between working sets. Felt heavy, but then it didn't. I just gassed.)
Dumbbell fly stretch 60 seconds
Deadlifts (4) feeder sets, 535 lbs x 11 (I did more reps in a single set in April, but I did these with a dead stop reset on each rep, no rebound pulls.)
Pull-ups (2) feeder sets, BW + 60 lbs x 12/BW + 25 lbs x 10/BW x 10 (15 breath rest pause between working sets.)
Pull-up stretch 60 seconds
Dumbbell military press (3) feeder sets, 60 lbs + 30-60 lbs band x 25/10/7 (15 breath rest pause between working sets.)
Band face pulls 30-60 lbs band x 30/30
Cross body band shoulder stretch 30 seconds
Hands behind the back shoulder stretch 60 seconds

Yesterday I helped a buddy move and stack hay in the peak heat of the day. We had to wait until it warmed up, because it rained in the morning, so we needed everything to dry out. It only took us about 4 hours to move and stack around 1000 bails between the 4 of us, but the heat index was 110 degrees and we only took 2, 10 minute breaks. Needless to say we were smoked by the end of it and it definitely impacted my workout today.

Went to breakfast with my buddies and finished my workout when I returned.

Sissy squats (2) feeder sets, BW x 13 (I do these in the squat rack. I set the pin where it is just behind my knee and place the squat pad around the pin. Then I lean against the pad and place my feet behind me on the other side of the squat cage. It is not really comfortable on your toes, as they push into the squat cage, but it is awesome for the movement. Then just act like you are sitting down and getting up. The key is keeping your upper body slightly leaning back. It will tear your quads up.)

Incline dumbbell fly (4) warm up sets
Incline dumbbell press (2) feeder sets, 150 lbs x 14 (I was very pleased with this, as I didn't feel all that great going into the set, but I kept my feeder set reps lower than usual to save a little for this set and it worked.)
Incline dumbbell fly stretch 60 seconds
V-grip pull downs (4) feeder sets, 260 lbs x 11
T-bar row (2) feeder sets, 9 plates x 10 (These are so much harder when you do them second in your back workout. I usually do them first and get 12+ reps.)
Hanging lat stretch 2x30 seconds (Forearm pump was too much to hang for 60 seconds.)
Face pulls (4) warm up sets
Hammer strength shoulder press (3) feeder sets, 4 pps x 17 (I should have went to 5 pps, but I wasn't sure, plus I am not sure if 5 plates actually fit on there. It looks like only about half the plate will make it on there, but I do that on hack squats all the time and the staff at the gym doesn't complain.)
Cross body band shoulder stretch 60 seconds
Hands behind the back shoulder stretch 60 seconds
