The last workout really left me feeling tired and sore. Must keep that in mind when I find more than 2 (in this case, 7) days between weight workouts and return to the same max weight. Since I was still feeling sore for Mon's workout, I dropped the squat to 150lb.


Points to consider

  • Was able to get by with just 3 min rests. Nice to take up less time!
  • Playing with keeping my elbows more down, under the bar and pulling towards each other. Didn't notice much difference yet.

Overhead press

Points to consider

  • 80lb
  • Successful reps: 5, 4, 4, 4, 4
  • No vid due to busy gym area :\
  • Sometimes I still screw up the coordination of hips moving and bar going up
  • The first rep always feels hard, but if I keep a steady pace after that the set feels manageable. However, sometimes I feel the need to take two breaths and that throws off the pace
  • Allowing the bar to feel as if it is falling back towards my nose is how it feels on my most effecient feeling reps


Points to consider

  • 180lb
  • Felt good and pretty casual
  • no vid due to it being busy and some guy who kept talking to me even as I was lifting: odd
