160 lb Military press 5 x 2 PR!!, 32 kg belt squats, floor pushups,side laterals crawls

Wow what a weird day. Slept enough just not good ( harder to get up at 3:45 on Monday after getting to sleep in to 5:30 on the weekends now- never been hard before ) Easy day. two clients out so plenty of stretch time but still not feeling great

Used the pruvit ketone drink + the MCT oil product as well on top of an extra cup of coffee and well, definitely felt it.In a very good way but probably shouldn't have had the extra coffee.

Shoulder felt solid all morning too.
Did a short video on my banded windmill drill

Solo today in the gym and it seemed to be fine. The extra mat has made an immeasureable difference in the take off out of the rack, which has made ALL the difference in my set up and hence the actual press itself.

SO much easier and NO bicep tendon talk at all!
Took the closest grip I have had yet on a press.Ring finger RIGHT On the edge of the knurling onto the smooth. A true CLOSE grip. But it felt right and great.

Also really solidified my set up, Bar on the chest, unrack it. Step step step Lay Back and clench glutes. Then Glutes Lats and grip contract simultaneously and rocket it up. Feels perfect.

Military press
 stick x 5
45 x 5
65 x 3
85 x 2
105 x 2
120 x 2
135 x 1
150 x 1
160 x 2 x 5 sets PR!!! never had used this weight as a workout weight before.

Fourth set was shaky. Almost too confident and didn't lay back enough bar got out in front and wasted some energy but I still got both reps

And the fifth set was strong. Video above is second set

32 kg Belt squats
4 sets of 20

very strong legs and lungs

Floor pushups

really thought I had a chance for a rep pr but tricep death got me on 3rd set. A bit anticlimactic after the presses anyhow

Side laterals
3 sets of 15 with 15 lbs


3 laps of 70 ft


166.2 !!
BF 11.4
W 57.8

hardly ate yesterday

Not sure what's next week for the press, Either I take a weight or really back off. I'll know in the next few days
