    I am yet to post 2 workouts:
    8/20 Bench Day:
    230 x 5, 215 x 6 x 2 (230 x 5 is a gigantic PR and I think I fixed my wonky shoulder. Heard some snapping/popping which I think was the release of an impingement on reps 4 and 5. Went wider grip, per Eden's suggestion, and took the bar to lockout over a lower part of my chest than I had been doing)
    Chin-ups: 18
    Dips: 22
    Chin-ups: 8
    Dips: 12
    Chin-ups: 7
    Dips: 10

    and 8/21
    Squat: 355 x 5 x 3. New 25kg bumper plates came in. 2 pairs. And I have 1 pair of 45lbers. So this was all rubber on the bar, and it looked like a ton of weight. As Dom @ BroScienceLife says: "CrossFit weight is the spanx of weight."
    Nice work on the bench. That's solid as hell. Glad to hear the technique change up has advanced your progress that much.

    Rest really, really helped me. Deep tissue massage and a midweek break before returning to the iron paid some big dividends. Definitely recommend some deep tissue stuff for the shoulder if you feel any lingering issues. Mine honestly feels like its sitting in a different place in the socket now, it's that much more comfortable. The sensation of getting scar tissue broken down is pure agony, but the workouts that follow are just awesome.

    I saw a few references to "intentions" in various threads -- but never caught what they are. Can you please send me a pointer. I'm always up for trying something new with my assistant exercises to mix things us.

    Well thanks, guys. Especially Eden, since you were the one who suggested taking a wider grip, which was the opposite of what I was thinking. Onward and upward. I'm a big fat 157 pounds or so right now. I'm sure I'll lose a couple pounds once I start heading back towards 148 (probably for the last time ever) for the October meet, so hopefully I can ride some progress before I start eating like a normal person again.
