75lb Standing Press,32 kg belt squat, floor pushups, hip sled

Recovered well from yesterday. Shoulders felt pretty solid all day. Got a decent stretchout at my 8 am cancellation. Lots of overhead work to boot.

Had no idea of what today was going to be like but it worked out well

Military press
45 x 5 x 3 ( first time starting with bar!)
55 x 5
65 x 5 x 2
75 x 3 x 4 PR!
75 x 5 x 3
55 x 8

this was a bit rough starting out but then it smoothed out quite nicely.Shoulders needed quite a few reps to oil up :)  Weight felt heavy though, hence the high pressure and the grunting :) Oh well.Added in some wrist wraps and that helped as well.Also switch from my York Oly bar to a thicker Texas power bar and it felt much better in the grip.
The york bar is very thin.

Belt squat
32 kg x 15, 17, 20, 20

haven't done these in awhile . Used Oly boots for first part of first set but took the off fast. Just don't help here. Once I re found the groove it was good work

Floor pushups
4 sets of 10

Man! Pecs and shoulders were tired from the first rep from all those presses but they also warmed up.
NO clunking and everything worked correctly . So nice to be able to do these for real again

Hip sled

95 lbs x 250 ft x 4 laps

these felt strong and easy. Time to bump the weight 10 lbs

solid one today. three tough days in a row and feel pretty solid right now. that's the goal
