Military press pr,barbell hack squat, floor pushups, hip sled

This went well although I was pretty tired today. Long weekend with lots of extra work definitely made it tougher as well as the freakin' cold but it still got done. Surprisingly better than expected too
The video doesn't show the weight but it's 95 lbs for 5 sets of 3! serious pr and each set felt better than the last

Barbell Mil Press
stick x 10 x 3
45 lbs x 5
55 lbs x 5
65 lbs x 5
75 lbs x 5
85 lbs x 5
95 lbs x 3 x 5 sets! double PR

this is really coming along and it's getting to be one of my favorite lifts! It's fresh territory too as I 've NEVER trained this movement standing in all these years! I like that this lift hits my upper pecs as well as shoulders and tri's

Barbell hack squats
55lbs x 15 x 4 sets

QUADS ON FIRE!!  wow serious pump here. never thought I'd write those words again

Floor Pushups
13, 13
12, 10

tricep size and strength is coming along as well

Hip sled
102 lbs x 250 ft x 4 laps

this feels like almost nothing after the ruck walk :0
