150 lb Military Press 5 x 4 ( almost) PR , 32 kg belt squats, floor pushups,crawls, side delts

This was a tough one mentally. Didn't sleep well last night and had a hard start getting focused. I wasnt feeling "in" my body but more my head. Never a good place to be :)

But I took it out of my ass and got to work. As usual, by the time I got really warmed up and feeling good the workout was almost over.

Military press
 bar x 5
65 x 5
85 x 3
105 x 3
120 x 2
135 x 1
150 x 4,4,3,3/4,4,4 all fours are PR's

the setup didn't feel right til the last two sets. Not enough arch ,nor glute tightness nor grip! It's a miracle I made them.
My right QL was tight all morning and as I arched and pressed overhead it resisted. It felt better each set but it still took almost the whole time to release.
Pressing re balances my flexion dominant posture and I always feel better, structurally, afterwards. It's just getting the front panel opened up that takes so long

And I KNEW this going in and prepared to focus on it. Just took awhile to get in and you only get so many sets :)

this was the second set

can't quite count the lockout of the fourth rep but I'm counting it anyway :)

32 kg belt squats
4 sets of 20

Floor pushups

strong. focused on keeping my head higher and eyes up

3 sets of 70 ft
