Good workout this morning.  I decided to stick around home and workout here instead of making the trip down to Untamed today...I'll head down there on Monday.

My left shoulder is still very sore so I was worried heading into bench today.  They went well though and I felt pretty strong.

SSBs felt good until my last two sets.  My left hammy in particular started to get really sore to the point where I was nervous about straining it.  I reduced my depth and finished out my reps and moved on.  I walked a mile after working out and that seemed to loosen it up some.

That concludes Cycle 32 of 531.  I'm going to take a break from 531 and switch programs for a while.  I was planning to move over to Sheiko full time but given how beat up I feel I'm going to switch over to Ben Pollack's free intermediate program instead.  It starts off with higher volume and lower weights which should let me heal up some.  It builds up to a nice peak by week 10.  His "Unf*ck Your Program" series of YouTube is very interesting and this program looks perfect for me right now.
