200 lb Press!! PR! Finally achieved!
This is almost like a dream, I can hardly believe it's real. I was planning on going for 185 for 3 today but a nagging voice kept telling me I should just go for 200. Test out the new groove and technique. So I decided to warmup to 185 and if that was good just through 200 on the bar and go for it.
Which is exactly what happened and what I did.
And it worked!
Man I've been chasing this bad boy for over a year ( once I set my sights on it) and much long as the "big dream goal" that I thought was literally out of reach. For most of this last year as well. I honestly didn't think I would ever get it the way things were going.
And it wasn't my best day too. My glutes were way tired from the heavy swings and ruck yesterday and I truly never hit a great starting position today. Except for the 185.. Did not wedge myself under the bar enough. I was too vertical on lift off and didn't keep my hips forward enough for optimal leverage but I STILL MADE IT!!
Once I get in the same position I was in last week with 165 , 205 is going to FLY
65 x 5
85 x 3
105 x 3
135 x 2
155 x 1
175 x 1 so so
185 x 1 Best rep ever
200 x !!!!! ALL TIME PR AND LIFE GOAL
205 x Miss not a bad attempt actually
155 x 7 PR
My hips were actually in a much better position on the 205 but I was just mentally spent. In a good way but still not much there
I could have got ten with 155 but just too much grinding. still best ever
44 kg belt squat
3 x 10/10 with 15s
