Sunday – Push

Comments:

* Partial reps are being done as my left shoulder continues to heal. I am finding that heavy partial reps do not irritate the injury in my left shoulder. I am hoping that these partial reps will help preserve the strength I have acquired in the bench press, weighted dip, and overhead press.

Comments:

* Partial reps are being done as my left shoulder continues to heal. Doing something is better then nothing. God can multiply the work of your hands if you ask him. However, if you don’t do any work there is nothing for God to multiply.
