Strict press to 182.5 x 1, 20kg kb front squats, floor pushups,combo laterals

Another solid day of singles. this may very well work although I won't know til we hit 4-5 weeks in, where heavy singles USUALLY burn out. But today was solid.
Did not feel like training so it was almost a guarantee good session ,lol

Strict Press
45 x 5 x 2
65 x 3
85 x 3
112 x 3
122 x 2
135 x 1
150 x 1
160 x 1
170 x 1
177.5 x 1( out in front)
180 x 1 made the corection
182.5 x 1 SOLID!!!
172.5 x 3 PR
165 x 4
150 x 5

Leaned a lot, another thing I was hoping for from this approach. after the walkout and I set my arch, I have to RESET the elbows for it to work
Also, have to get the BIGGEST bite on the grip that I can- almost think false grip! makes a huge difference at weight, and also lets me pull the 'trigger' on the grip more easily

I didn't do that on the 177.5 and it let the bar drift forward. I almost went 185 for the last set but thought better of it. Would have made it too but there's plenty of time

The downs sets were almost easy after all that heaviness

Still losing contract with torso and the bar on the walkout. Have to lead from the upper back as I walk back, not stay so upright

KB Front squat

five sets of five with double 20 kgs. I love this close stance now

started easy.  but they felt great

Floor pushups
2 x 40
1 x 35

burn baby burn!

compound laterals
1 x 8/8 wth 15
2 x 8/8 with 20's

skipped crawls. the presses took a long time and I was done

BW 169.4 !!
BF 12.7

not bad for a monday
