44 kg One arm swings 10 x8/8, Deadlift 315 x 1, wt pushups,side delts

This was a cold one,a balmy 36 degrees when we started. Felt good, took a great hot bath and stretched out well before. No real aches or pains when we got going. The bath is magic warmup medicine. I literally couldn't do it without it.
Well I could but it would be nowhere near as strong.

One arm Swings
16 kg x 5/5 x 2
20 kg x 5/5
24 kg x 5/5
28 kg x 5/5
32 kg x 5/5
36 kg x 4/4
40 kg x 3/3
44 kg x 8/8 x 10 sets
160 reps
15, 520 lbs

Felt like I had good position, power output, balance and acceleration. To be honest, looking at the video I thought the bell height would be better but it's fine


135 x 3
225 x 2
275 x 1
300 x 1
315 x 1!!

Did the first three sets in my Oly shoes, then took them off and went barefoot and it was much better. About the same off the floor but an easier lockout
Key things:
1) crush the hell out of the bar
2) REALLY lock the lats in tighter than I think I need to DON'T RUSH)
3) pull the bar back and in first, don't try to start with the legs/hips

I think I really need to alternated coan barbell rows every other week with deads. I think they will be key

Wt Pushups
bw  x 10
53 x 10 x 3

switched to the thumbless grip here to emulate the press. No issues and VERY strong here Slow and controlled reps

Side delts
3 sets of 15 with 15 lbs
easy and strict

BW 168.2
BF 11.1 ( post bath)
W 57.8

lets see how the feet and the boots hold up for tomorrows ruck
