Deads and presses

Shoulder press

100x5 (kind of low, but did a bunch of pullups yesterday and that almost always affects it.)


I think I've figured out why my back was giving me grief, and why when I would do the second rep, things would be fine from there on out.

I was standing up too soon, not letting the bar get over my knees. When I would reverse it would work fine. But going up, I was pulling my knees out of the way and using my back to lever up. Bringing the bar up over my knees kept my back set and I was good to go.

Still just warm up weights


1x225 . . . I was thinking about 3 at 225 but haven't been over 200 in 4 weeks so I figured 205 was fine, 225 do one and not be too pig headed. Went up fine.

Then 10x135 sumo style. Nice hit on the glutes and hamstrings.
