195 lb Strict Press x 1 PR!!, 60 kg belt squats, floor pushups, combo laterals

Another great workout. Despite feeling like taking a nap on the ride home from work this went great! Just as I visualized and hope. The technique held. The big jumps worked. I felt strong and confident from start to finish.

Actually knowing HOW to get this lift started and having it work every time is the confidence booster! Not know exactly what to do to get it started and trying to figure that out on the fly an under the weight!

with the double layback I literally catch the bar at my chin level and press from there. Very very much like my old barbell bench technique. It was the only way I could bench without shoulder pain and it worked great there too

Strict Press
45 x 5
65 x 3
95 x 3

135 x 1 strong!
155 x 1 strong too
175 x 1 no problem
185 x 1 not enough layback so a bit out in front
195 x 1 PR!!! trusted it but still need MORE layback at start.
