Felt much better than just a few days ago.


Points to consider

  • 160lb for 5x5 with 3/4 minute rests
  • I concentrated on keeping my upper back tight and elbows down and in; the bar felt well balanced on my back
  • Stance was a little more narrow (shoulder width) and I concentrated on hips going back and having my torso lean forward a bit more. Felt good

Overhead press

Points to consider

  • 5x5 @ 85lb with 5 min rests
  • Not easy to complete, but not terribly hard.
  • Form is continuing to feel more fluid. Still tough to keep elbows from flaring and core/lower body tight throughout.


Points to consider

  • 1x5 @ 205lb
  • I tried to shift back a bit before pulling to lock into position; sometimes it was feeling effective.
  • Hips didn't rise early as much, but still did a bit. Needs more work.
