160 lb Military press PR, 48 kg belt squats,Floor pushups, crawls, side delts
Not bad at all! And I'd be ecstatic if I weighed 160 but I was 164 this morning,lol!!
Oh well I tried 165 too, twice, and no go. At first I thought it was a technique issue and I wasn't leaning back enough but I just wasn't strong enough
looking at it in slo motion I do think I wasn't back enough; as Glenn said right after I ended up pushing the weight forward at the sticking point, pretty much what I did with the 4th rep of the 4th sets with 135 but this time it was too heavy to recover from. I tried the weight again but then I was definitely too tired!
Shoulder felt fine but man the triceps got some serious work just holding the weight. Never really been about 135 EVER in this movement.
Definitely will benefit from training this in singles format
Heres my 150 lb opener; also a PR
and on this I can tell I lean back and stay back better than in the 165. Glenn, you were right :)
stick x 5
65 x 5
85 x 4
105 x 3
120 x 1
135 x 1
150 x 1 PR
160 x 1 PR
165 x X
165 x X
That was awesome and, most importantly, I didn't hurt myself!
48 kg Belt squat
when the bell gets taller these get much easier, even though they're heavier :)
3 sets of 28
3 sets of 70 feet
3 sets of 15 with 15 lbs
ok that was a very nice day. So next workout 70% of 160 is 112 so I'll probably use 115 for 15 sets of 1
