Notes: My younger brother is in town and we decided to hit this workout together. It was good to have a stronger athlete around to give me the push on both the pullups and bench press. I definitely wouldn't have gone as heavy as I didn't if he wasn't pushing the weight up each time. It wasn't necessarily a competition thing, it was more of a belief in my mind that I should be able to do heavier weights. Second exposure to bench press in a while, so it was more comfortable this week than last week.
Chin-ups felt good, but it just seems stuck at the top. Not sure what's going on here. Scap retractions beat up my hands. Ext rotations felt good.
