170 lb Military press 1x3,1x2,3x3,48 kg Belt squat, floor pushups, crawls, rear laterals
Such a weird workout. One of those days where I went in with everything 'right' but had a tough one. Felt flat. Slept well, ate and rested well yesterday, easy day at work etc , etc but just felt flat. The weight never felt heavy and was just 'slightly' out of the groove but just enough to make it much harder than it should have been
Looking back now two things stand out :
1) damn deadlifts. they always have a negative effect on my CNS. It seems impossible but this is the third time it's happened.
2) really fast ruck yesterday really tightened up my front panel and I just didn't get it opened enough during the day. The fact that nothing 'hurt' may have contributed. But I was just tight enough to not get under the weight on the walkout and setup.
Never felt like i was carrying the weight back on my torso. Too much in the arms which inhibited my elbow lift- THE key component, Still
the set above was good and set four was even better.
I could feel the tightness in the warmup sets but didn't take the time to really open it up. Won't happen again
