Closest yet! 220 lb press x X x 2, 205 x 1 x 5,pistols, floor pushups



SO CLOSE! At first I thought my technique was spot on and I just wasn't strong enough, but close examination of the start shows I dropped my elbows just a bit and let my T spine shift forward, again. just a bit, but enough to put the bar path too forward for me to overcome it

Goods news is that I am wicked strong and almost got it anyway!

This 205 on the way up was as fast as I've ever done it


AND I don't drop the elbows back at all and the groove was pretty much perfect for me

I think I confused "long pause" with "long pause after I get into the right position in the layback.  I 'held" right after unracking it, THEN layed back and held again but I shifted that slight bit. Oh well at least I can see it

Also good news is that after I pressed it I did not shift forward but "stayed back" as I was focusing on as well

I'll get it and then, once I get this sussed, 225 in short order too.
