No leg or chest work last week, missed a day, but will get back on that ASAP. Tonight was shoulders and lower back work instead -
Standing strict overhead axle press -
1x10 @ empty 55 lb. axle
1x5 @ 145 lbs.
1x3 @ 195
1x3 @ 215
1x2 @ 220
1x1 @ 225
1x1 @ 230
1x1 @ 235
1x1 @ 240
Gave 245 a scare, but didn't lock it out fully. Dropped weight down -
3x6 @ 195 lbs. to wrap it up
1x5 @ 135 lbs.
1x5 @ 225
1x3 @ 315
5x5 @ 360, all reps fast and easy, felt like every set could have been an easy 8-10, but that's not the goal right now, gotta stay focused and keep myself in check.
Seated strict barbell overhead press -
2x12 @ 135 lbs., medium grip, all reps touching collarbone, none of that "lower only to the ears" garbage that lets people lift more than they are truly capable of
I found that I can squeak out about 3-4 more reps when I cut them short, so no point in making life easier, time to get stronger.
Good mornings with black thick bands on bar, no plates, tension around 50 lbs. at bottom, about 150 lbs. at finish -
2x15 done fast for speed
Reverse hyperextensions -
2x25 @ 70 lbs., all reps squeezed with glutes and hams, no cheat
Good quick session tonight, spending the day at the Bay View Bash strongman contest tomorrow to spectate and give a hand if they need any help, should be fun. Squats and benching on Sunday, one more session Tuesday, then it's off to Baltimore for the Natural Products Expo, so I'll be missing training from Wednesday through Saturday, but will be back on track the following Sunday!
