135 lb Military press,4x4 1x5, 32 kg belt squats , 50 rep floor pushup,crawls, side delts

This was hard. The workout goal was originally 5 sets of 4 but I had it in the back of my mind I might actually attempt 5 x 5 and get it out of the way. Lol, well it was not to be. I felt very fine physically coming in and my mind was actually solid as well but I was just tired

Plus I was hungry and I did the workout, as usual, in a fasted state. I felt strong but sluggish and sluggish for this workload was not going to cut it

Took my time warming up and the shoulder felt good. Glenn triggered pointed my left teres major which seems to be the culprit. Worked great.
Weight didn't feel heavy in the rack I just didn't have much oomp

Went for five on the first set , made four, but didn't lay back enough for the 5th and it got forward and that was that.
I also realized I couldn't do 5x5 without adding another set and I knew I didn't have that in me.

Back off next week to 105 for 6 sets of 6 and build some more base. No doubt I will get this, just a matter of when
Also being tired I didn't keep my lower body as tight either and that didn't help

Mil Press
stick x 5 x 2
bar x 5 x2
65 x 5
75 x 3
95  x 3
115 x 2
125 x 2
135 x 4
       x 5 PR!!
       x 4 x 3 PR!
I thought about doing five on each set but no gas in the tank by then . The last rep on the 5th set was a true 100% max effort

Belt squat

 this was tough and easy at the same time. Tough because it was my third day in a row on legs and they were tired and TIGHT
The smaller 32 kg bell makes me go much lower than the other bells,especially when standing on plates. it took me a few reps of each set just to get the bell to pause on the floor! but man what a leg pump!

Floor pushups
1 x 50 PR!!!

I also had it in mind to do a max rep set today and the number in the back of my mind was fifty. I've done 40 continuous before but not after 5 x 4 with 135 in the press and going to tricep failure :)
But, why not. It was peak week so , give it go. What's the worst that can happen? I don't make it?
No worries as long as I don't get hurt.

It wasn't too bad. I had a few shoulder clunks after 40 so I was hesitant to push the last 5 but it came out ok. Haven't "clunked ' in forever and it always aches the next day. But this was a peak. Won't do this again for quite awhile but it is a great accomplishment and I'm proud.

Especially since I can vividly recall not being able to do a single pushup at all and starting back with on my knees pushups doing 3-4 negative only reps for a few sets. And now this! Awesome.

3 sets of 60 feet fast!

Side delts
3 sets of 12 with 15lbs

BW 161.6
BF 12.5
W 56.6

pretty dead now but happy

ok day off tomorrow for roll and stretchout then snatch vo2 on Wednesday. Back to the future!
