125 lb Military press 5x5,40kg belt squats,floor pushups, crawls, side delts
Surprisingly hard and strong press day at the same time. For some reason I thought taking a twenty pound jump from last week would be easy. It wasn't, at least for the first two sets, then the third set, which I recorded got much lighter. Guess I warmed up.
Did not give this workout it's mental "due" as the ass kicking from the last two days had me preoccupied.
But all in all a strong day although triceps certainly didn't do well in the pushups. triceps death ensued.
stick x 5
45 x 5
65 x 5
85 x 5
105 x 3
125 5 x 5!!
the main issue was that I was still too stiff and tight to lay back enough on the first two sets to really access my bar path.Once that loosened up things went better
40 kg belt squat
4 sets of 12 off plates. no problem with 1 second hold and contract at top of each rep. Legs are fatigued.
tricep death :)
didn't push it, more than few of the press reps were serious grinds
3 sets of 70 ft.
good but we're beat
2 sets of 12-10 with 15's
it would be nice to have an extra day to do left leg TKE's, triceps extensions and curls on their own as well as some direct ab work. not yet though but at some point when recovery is better
