185 x 5 x 1PR! Floor pushups PR! 44 kg belt squat, laterals



Well this went great! Way better than expected!  As usual felt like shit coming in, tired and having trouble focusing but warmups went very well and made some decent big jumps too with no problem

The whole time I was very calm and comfortable with the load.The position is finally coming along and I feel like I can find it, AND count on it. The two reps that got forward a bit I was able to fix by driving the hips under the bar more instead of trying to push the bar back. this seems to be the way to fix it as I haven't missed a rep using this technique since I figured it out!

The key technique on the unracking is to really get the hips under, and really use the glutes to take the weight off. Then walking back leading from the upper back. The second rep I walked out too vertical and really had to fight to bring the bar into lockout. The next set, which the above is, was the best of all as I walking it out leaning more.
Like a charm!
