165 lb Press 5 x 4 PR, 44 kg belt squat, floor pushups, laterals



This was way tougher than it should have been and it's only because i misjudged the temperature in the gym. It was freakin' cold; much colder than outside and I didn't take a hot bath or shower and was wearing just compression shorts and t shirt!

I really have to be warm to press well and I just wasn't getting there! So I went back in and dressed in sweats but it really through me off till I got to 155 and warmed up just a bit. The first set at 165 ( hard) finally got me warm but it was a tactical mistake I won't make again

Winter isn't coming; it's here.

Press
45 x 5
65 x 3
85 x 3
105 x 3
120 x 2
135 x 2
155 x 2
165 x 4 x 5 sets PR

RPE 8.5-9.0

the technique held well as I had more than a couple  iffy reps I would have missed just a month ago or so. Bar got out in front but I did the right thing and got my hips under instead of trying to shift the bar and it worked fine.

PLUS my left biceps tendon had been out all morning and didn't have time to really unfuck it til i got home, But it was inflammed a bit as I was pressing and made me slow down a bit on some reps. It all ended well but not the best day in terms of ease.

BUT it all got done!
