Not satisfied with yesterday's workout, I decided to see how a second day at the same weight but with more volume would feel. Answer: better than yesterday!


Points to consider

  • 5x5 @ 195lb with 2 min rests; no amrap set at end
  • Left knee felt good. A little creaky at the start, but better as the workout went on.

Overhead press

Points to consider

  • 5x6 @ 90lb with 3, 3, 3, 4, 5 min rests
  • Completed all sets! Had to grind a bit for 6 on the last 3 sets.
  • Unlike the squats today, back-to-back press days (closer to my limit than the squats) was quite hard


Points to consider

  • 3 sets @ +10lb with 3 min rests
  • Successful reps: 7, 7, 8
