SlingShot bench press (Reactive) 335 lbs. x 2, 350 lbs. x 4, 335 lbs. x 3

Way too heavy on the last two sets. Should have used 345 and 325 and gotten two back-off sets of 4. Also left shoulder felt a bit icky.

DB curl 4s x 10

Do you have some special tall bench for chest supported rows? I've been thinking about doing them but the gym doesn't have tall enough benches.

I like the holidays, but it makes keeping a workout schedule difficult sometimes. I have to work on Thanksgiving, so my Mom is making this big breakfast on Friday morning for our family. I can't really say "Well Mom I'd love to go, but Friday is my 1+ OHP day and I've been working out all month in anticipation of it."

The chest supported rows are done on a HammerStrength machine. I used to construct a Chinese row setup with a regular bench and boxes, but gave it up due to the level of effort necessary.

An incline bench and DBs can be an acceptable substitute.

OH is easy to work into your day, you can get up early and get some pressing in before the TG breakfast. Years ago when I worked at a place wth a gym, I would get in 30 minutes early and OHP/shower before work. Other lifts, not so much.
