115 lb Military press,40 kg belt squat, floor pushups, leopard crawls, side delt

Well this was a better workout than I thought it was! Just looking back at my numbers for this and my 5x5 pr is with 110 lbs and with 120 lbs I've done 4 sets of 2. Today I did 5 sets of 3 with 115 and it was strong! Definitely could have done 4's for sure.
Made a great technique discovery too- brought my grip in about 1/2 inch closer and really worked to get and keep my elbows IN more in the rack and what a difference it made! Way more torque in the shoulder and hand

I've been struggling trying to squeeze the bar harder because it really helps strength but I just have felt like I didn't have a great grip connection- well bringing the hands in just that much made the bar fit so much better in the hand I could really crush it.

Crazy such a small thing makes such a huge difference but it can.

It also helps that my shoulders have been feeling much better of late

Hi Rif

"Leopard crawls

Are these the same as Bear crawls?
