Read up on overhead press form and I can now see why I was doing so badly with them and hating them so god damn much, my form was appalling, this is the first time I've ever been excited to do them, can't wait until friday

Don't feel particularly bigger yet, I have a weigh in on Monday, doing it every two weeks so I don't get obsessed over little ups and downs, finally got paid today so I've got some propped food in. Haha I'm at work now elbow deep in a jigsaw, you on 5/3/1?

Yeah really good :) I'm trying to leave my ego behind and not get too impatient lol I'm eager to add some decent numbers to the strength table on the forum. I'm looking forward to your weigh in dude let me know how it goes, any estimations?

No idea, more fat than muscle cos I've just been making sure I'm not hungry, there must be some gains I recon, I didn't think I had an ego until I started lifting haha I'm looking forward to adding weight to the bar after someone else uses it not take it off
