190 lb Military press, 3 misses, 135 x 10 pr, 48 kg belt squat, floor pushups, crawls, side delts

 This was a strange one. Felt VERY strong but 'flat'. I don't recall adrenalizing much last week but perhaps I did.  Part of it was that this was  an afterthought and I didn't really care that much if I made it.  I just wanted to give it a try and that's all I got.

It never felt heavy but I couldn't get all the pieces right on any of my three attempts. I actually thought I was going to make each one! It just never felt heavy but I never got under the weight enough.

Looking at the video I can tell that I did make the corrections from last week:
1) I walked out with the chest up so i didn't lose connection to the bar

2) I layed back early

But I didn't initiate with a fast second layback and I think that's what cost me this lift. I think I was actually TOO confident in my strength and used too much arm and didn't lay back enough

attempt 1

the bar got way out in front and I decided not to chase it

the second attempt I got a little fire for. The pressure was off, so to speak as I had already missed. I got more but not enough second layback

Third attempt was closest

then a nice PR of ten reps with 135

It's all good, Again the weight never felt heavy at all which I think lulled me into a false confidence. I can't forget the exact tehcniques
