180 lb Press 5 x 2 PR!!, 40kg belt squats,Floor pushups laterals



WOW!! Wow oh wow oh wow! Did not expect this! Especially when I was pretty flat coming into the gym. Just a crazy busy weekend and not a lot of mental prep time. Plus the 48 kg workout got me a bit worked as well as the fast ruck

But I thought my technique would pull me though and it did! It all held! Every set had one rep that was a bit out in front and I pulled them all back! that never would have happened even 5 weeks ago as I would try to push the bar back over my head INSTEAD OF PUSHING MY HIP FORWARD MORE. Worked every time today. SO cool

85 x 3
