185 lb Press 3 x 2 PR! 1x1, 60 kg belts squat , floor pushups, laterals



This was a freakin hard ass workout! Start to finish. Even the warmups were hard. No excuses I felt great, slept great felt strong and solid and had a bath and good stretchout. It was just fucking heavy and with this exercise I have NO margin for error. BUT I did 7 solid reps with 95% and that should get me to 200 in three attempts or less.

I can grind on this, that's for sure, but for sure I shouldn't HAVE to with these damn weights.The groove is so elusive for me and so dependent on so many variables. But, I made the lifts and I made a big jump from 180 last week. Normally I would have jumped just 2.5 lbs but I'm on a deadline :) it was fine

I did see from the video I am NOT getting enough of the bar weight on my chest on the step out. If I'm too vertical on the walkback it always feels heavier and that was true today.

Not sure what I'll do next week. Not ready for attempts at 200 nor 190. Perhaps 175 for some fast doubles. I'll think on it.
