105 lb Military Press 5x5,32 kg belt squats,floor pushups,crawls rear delts

Back on track today with the barbell press again. As decided earlier I am going back to lighter loads and 5x5 to allow maximum focus on peaking for the 44 kg one arm swing test in Oct. I don't need to be greedy with this movement anyway. A bodyweight press for this old guy and older shoulders is plenty for right now.Perhaps for ever but certainly right now, especially after getting my ass handed to me in Saturdays swing workout.

It took a few sets to work back into fives but all's well that ends well, and it did.

Military press
stick x 5
65  x 5
85 x 5
105 x 5 x 5

right oblique was tight going overhead for the first few sets and that didn't help. once that loosened up things started feeling lighter and moving more fluidly. didnt do enough back over the ball stretches this weekend and after those two big training loads I needed it.
Thankfully it opened up as it made going over even harder than normal

32 kg belt squats ( on plates)
15, 18, 20 20

these were good but almost too light now. I wanted the burn of higher reps to get my legs back into it quicky

Floor pushups
 3 sets of 29 ! PR
these were very strong and easy

3 sets of 70 reps
strong, too

Side delts
3 sets of 10 with 20 lbs
still getting better with these

ok day off today ( tuesday, as I write this) and 15 min of speed swings tomorrow

bw 164.4 !!
BF 11.7
W 57.2
