Mission accomplished! 190 lb Military Press PR, 85 reps Pushup PR
This was EPIC. Just one of those days. Those good days. Where my mind is not necessarily my friend but at least get the hell out of way so my training can take over.
I spent a TON of time over the last two days running through this lift, all the things I needed to do to make it. IF I felt good today
And after yesterdays slow and Saturdays' uber heavy swings I really wasn't sure what to expect. But I FELT good. Strong Good. Recovered good. Focused good.
The plan was to go to 182.5 as my last warmup and see from there. If it was hard stay there and try to get 3-4 singles if it was strong then just go to 190 and give it a shot
It wasn't strong but I said fuck it and went to 190 anyway. The press wasn't strong but I was
On days like these I don't have to shut up the monkey mind before each lift. In fact there is almost no dialogue. No stalling like usually, no going over the list. Just GO! It's confidence but more than that. NO FEAR.
For a change. I'm always scared of missing and messing up what I know I can do if I hit it. Today there was no fear of failure. Just drive towards the purpose.
Still doing something wrong at the sticking point- hence the weeble wobble in the middle. After closer review I think I am shifting more towards my toes and my bar path goes that way too
Then, I have to wait for the bar and my hips to come back before I can press up again. What a waste. I have to figure it out. The closer stance and 'coil' technique helped get me to sticking point faster but then I'm still not right.
BUT I FREAKIN' GOT IT!!!
