I skipped my yoga class with Lisa this morning. My energy is feeling low and my shoulders are bugging me today. I had made a date with Maura to learn how to bench today so I wanted to save up my energy for our training session. Yoga can be very restorative, but it can also be very rigorous, Lisa's Sunday class is a workout.
I am so lucky to have someone like Maura helping me with bench press. She is the bench press specialist after all... Maura's friend Luke showed up and gave me lots of very helpful advice too, which was wonderful.
My right shoulder was really bugging me, so I focused on arching back and positioning myself under the bar where I belong. I also have to learn to press directly up to the ceiling, and not up to where my face is.
My goal is to not bomb the bench press lift at the meet in February. Today was a technique day...
