122 lb Strict press, 24 kg speed swings 10's,walking lunges, laterals



Switched it up today and started with presses instead of swings. I was itching to practice this new technique and do some without the mirror. Both things went very well. Trying to get maximum leanback before the start of the press really felt right and not having any reflection pulling me forward really changed things. More than I imagined. Really brought be way back in to my body and I can tell my reaction times to the groove will be much faster, and better.

Also played with the trigger again and it will take some to master that's for sure but I think eventually I will use that. My rack position just has to be  much better though before.
