Points to consider

  • 3x5 @ 205lb with 5 min rests
  • Still working on making sure I don't have my wrists, especially left, in flexion
  • Hard, but the first set (video) felt the hardest/slowest

Overhead press

Points to consider

  • 3x5 @ 90lb with 5 min rests
  • trying the hip movement like described in starting strength 3rd edition, which made the lift feel a bit harder due to mixing in a new motion to learn. Hard to produce as much hip thrust as I get tired and deeper into the set. I think I'll keep trying with the hip thrust and 1 rep per breath
  • With the new method, I would like to decrease the delay/reset between reps and get into more of a rhythm


Points to consider

  • 1x5 @ 275lb
  • I think I'm getting better at lowering the bar back to the ground effeciently and being able to start the next rep relatively quickly
  • Didn't finish the 5th rep :( Form started to suffer (back flexion) and I lost grip near the top with my right hand. Next time, I'll use some chalk to help with the grip
