220 lb press x 3 attempts, 207.5 x 3, pistols, floor pushups
Well, this was a wild one!
First, the good news. I've never been so close to finishing 220 as I was today on my first attempt. Still did not lay back enough at the start to not avoid a slight give as I initiated the press and that pushed the bar forward just a bitbut it was enough to get me slightly out of the groove . and with this weight there's literally no margin for error.
but it was so close I had to ask Glenn if it was a good lift or not. Next time, lol
Took a weird second attempt that was well, just weird and not normal. The above was my third. Again the back and hips seem to be the weak links
But this 205 warming up was the best and fastest I've ever done. all the warmups from 155 -205 were all perfect fast straight line pushes
I have to cut myself some slack too. This IS the first heavy workout with this new technique and cues. Plus the first session with the Adidas Power Perfect shoes. So all things considered it was a great workout
I do think I'm going to up the weight on Wednesdays to 195 or maybe even 200. We'll see
