24 kg speed swings 12 min, 120lb Mil press 10x3,walking lunges, rear delts

This was harder and easier, as I expected. It was easier mentally as 12 minutes is as close to a walk in the park with this protocol as can be. That's where things actually start to get hard for me
But knowing it's only twelve minutes I went out much harder than usual and that's always tough. Faster more powerful reps just tax you much more than going as hard as you can while simultaneously knowing you have to go a LONG TIME

So more hardstyle reps really got my HR and  respiration going.

24 kg speed swings
15:15 x 10 RPA
12 min
240 reps
12,720 lbs

Military press practice

trying to figure out how NOT to push the damn bar fowards and I think I figured it out! When I do my lat flexion some times it seems my elbows go behind the hands  and I lose that perpendicular forearm angle.

I have to compress the elbow straight down and not back at all so it's all drive under the bar
Here's another angle

10 sets of 3 with 120

will see how this works on Monday :)

Walking lunges
3 sets of 40 steps

ok lets see if I can make my ruck tomorrow. Have to work extra late


PS Bench press!

In preparation for the SFL in May I did some benches at No Ex today. Just a few. I have to press 215 for a single for my strength test and it should be no problem but I haven't benched in 15 years! wow! that's a LONG time considering I competed for 13!

But it felt easy today. No problem at all
Flat back, medium grip with thumb over, took the weight out myself

bar x 5
95 x 2
115 x 2
135 x 1
155 x 1

felt just like a weighted pushup to the horizontal bar!
