Repeating the workout that I was going for on Thurs since I barely made it thru 1/2 that day


Points to consider

  • 3x5 @ 205lb with 4/5 min rests
  • Felt decent, but as seen on my first rep my knees sometimes still slide forward. I can feel it now, but I'm not sure how to prevent that. I felt it get better on the 2nd and 3rd reps

Overhead press

Points to consider

  • 3x5 @ 100lb with 5 min rests
  • Successful reps: 4, 3, 3
  • Felt good, but I run out of energy and sometimes get a bit too floppy on some reps that kills the finishing reps
  • Will deload back to 85lb next time and work on more volume as I move back up in weight again


Points to consider

  • 1x5 @ 285lb
  • Only got 2 reps and then my grip failed
  • No chalk and it was hot. even with, it still would have been a struggle
  • Tried to use the hook grip, but I don't think I'm trapping the thumb tightly (painfully) enough yet
