Immediately feels it's off. Asked if I took my high blood pressure medication. I say yes. So she puts on the bigger cuff and retakes my BP. She then says, that's more like it. Said if the cuff is too small, it puts artificial pressure onto the arm and causes a high BP reading.

So I guess I'm doing something right in the arms department. LOL.
Yep have same issue. They still will take with wrong cuff and freak out at times.

i stopped doing flat bench for awhile and stuck to Hammer Strength machines. i did however do flat bench last week because the machine was being used. had my son spot me but was able to do 225lb for 10 reps pretty easily. wondering is doing isolation chest movements helped me increase my reps when i did this?

Ended up pausing 3 reps at 275. I've done a few weeks where I've done 10x15 on incline or flat and that seems to carry me and keep most strength and pump is crazy.

Definitely good numbers on your flat bench! In response to your question, I'd say you need a good balance of both. The isolated movements are great, but using the free weights, either DB press or barbell, will help work your stabilizing muscles as the isolation movements neglect them.

Ate everything in sight yesterday, so had a wild pump this morning on back/tricep day. Hanging right around 180lbs right now. Thinking I'm going to start upping my protein intake, body seems to be working very efficiently right now. Probably because it is hot as a bitch outside haha.

Shoulders/biceps this morning with the usually pre and post cardio.

Tweaked something in my neck/trap this morning doing upright rows. Should be gone by tomorrow morning though as long as I get a good nights sleep. I have been having this constant tightness between my shoulders for what feels like months now. Getting a more supportive office chair for work so I hope that helps. I have also been sleeping without a pillow which has surprisingly helped to an extent. I am a back sleeper naturally, and without a pillow it helps align your spine to an extent.
