160 lb Military Press 5x5 PR!!!, 44kg belt squat,parallel bar pushups,crawls, side raises
OOH YEA! that's what i'm talking about!! THIS is what keeps me coming back. Know that it's out there. That THIS is possible. To be able to overcome my fears and weaknesses and tweaks and fatigue to do stuff like this after mucking up for so long
TO FIGURE IT OUT
Especially when nothing looks like it's really going to work
Felt solid coming in but that can mean nothing. Even my first set going well being strong could mean nothing.
You can always miss it on the last set
Five is a lot of heavy sets.
But it all went great! Just as I hoped for, the weight felt light, I could do the technique and it worked AND held and all the reps flew up easier than ever
This is what I train for. Days like these .THAT feeling of being so strong in your confrontation with the bar, with yourself, with your fear and being able to be confident enough to be aggressive and not have to hold back. Wow
That you're body won't betray you.
SO you can just PUSH
45 x 5
65 x 3
85 x 3
105 x 3
120 x 2
137.5 x 1
150 x 1
160 x 5 x 5 All time PR!!
Next week I go to 172.5 and work on getting 5 doubles.
I just still might have a chance at 190+ for my 61st birthday
44 kg belt squat
12, 14, 16, 18
the long slow inhale is making huge difference for higher reps it's a keeper
Parallel bar pushups
needed a change from floor pushups but it didn't save me any reps. I think floors better for the press assist.
3 laps 70 ft
strong and fast
3 sets of 12 with 20
ever since I learned medial delts are a phasic muscle I want to do heavier weights and lower reps
deserved day off tomorrow. need to roll out
