After an off day yesterday I was really feeling refreshed and ready to go for today's workout. Shoulders and traps were on the list, which is one area that I am putting 100% effort into improvement this off season. Last time I started with standing barbell presses I topped out at 2x6@225. This time I was able to progress onto 2x8@225. Two more reps in each set, so needless to say I am happy to see some progress in a weaker area and I plan on pressing forward as much as possible. Here's how today went...
