Military Press 145 x 8 x 3 PR,28 kg KB squat cleans, floor pushup ( pr) ,crawls, side laterals

I was tired today but strong! Very strange. Felt like I had no gas but then, things went! Weird indeed. I started out worrying whether I was actually going to be able to do triples and had mentally accepted doubles as ok but then the first set went for three, then the next ( which is the above video, which I took early cause I didn't expect to be able to get another! Only to end up with eight!

Each set felt better.took forever to warm up but even more, it took forever for my body to truly activate as one, as a whole; with maximum tension.

Those who don't understand why we teach max tension exercises on sub max weights don't know or accept the reality of how much strength is a skill. And you can't practice that skill with max weights. won't work.

Also, my grip! Anytime I lost total crush power on the barbell the rep wasn't as good or stalled out a bit. Re gripping and re torqueing the shit out of the bar was key!

I still have to re work the timing between when I set the hands and getting under the bar, taking the air and walking out. Very different than my old technique, without the emphasis on torque.

Also, I can't LOSE that torque as I'm setting up or the first rep is MUCH harder.

So much more to learn and perfect but this weight got crushed!

First time ever in work sets with over 140.
