85 lb press x 5x5 ,Handstand! ,barbell hacks, inclined pushups, sled pull
What an amazing workout. Woke up feel so-so and didn't really expect much but man what a huge day! First off today's press workout was the strongest I have been in it ever. My press finally felt STRONG! Like the old days. Not like something was going to break on every rep. Or, just holding the damn bar. The empty bar.
But perseverance pays off and today felt as solid as could be,Usually I come off the bar saying ' damn ,that was hard' . Today was "damn, that felt good"! Like that much better than the former.
PLUS my first attempt at a handstand in many months was a great success! Last time I couldn't stay upside down even with a partner holding my feet! Today no problem, and, while the position overhead was no near perfect it was no big deal either and I wasn't torqued at all.
My hypothesis was that the military bar press would transfer into the handstand and I was right! This last year as the first time that I can remember that I could not hold a handstand. That was unacceptable but I was afraid I was going to have learn to accept it. Now, I don't! These will go back in the mix for sure now.
Now next- get my pullup back and I will be pretty much set: walking, squatting,pushups, handstand, pressing, pullups. what more do I need. Oh yea, kb snatch. That too :)
