Military Press Big PR 120 x 5/5, 40 kg belt squat, floor pushups, crawls, side delt

Of course the video didn't work out but I got a major press pr today with five sets of five reps with 120 lbs
I can remember exactly starting this move last year with the empty bar, 45 lbs, and being very happy that I could do 5 sets of 5 ( kind of) with it since I couldn't seem to figure out how to press the kettlebell anymore without impinging my right biceps tendon.

But the bar ( and the stick before) didn't seem to bother it so I kept going. Little by little, adding sets, then reps then weight then rinse and repeat.  More or less for the year.
 And now 120 lbs which is SO close to 135 for the same workload. Which is huge for me. But, still, I'm in no hurry cause this shit is HEAVY and I would rather never be that strong if it meant getting hurt. But, I think I can do both, IF I go slowly and non greedily enough

This was hard today and I didn't get my now normal meditation drive in and just kind of ' got in and got it done."
Plus the rib is still not quite right and that is messing with my mind. I can accept going slowly but it is such a stupid injury.and a new one and I absolutely HATE new injuries.
But my press was solid even though I felt achy in the joints from all the low pressure front moving in.
