Overhead Press Training August 16

16 August 2011

Training has been erratic this past few weeks, I've managed to hit the gym 3 times per week but nothing out of the ordinary to report (as can be seen). Bench press routine is progressing well, although I feel like I'm hitting a wall there too. Squat is getting back on track slowly and I'm avoiding heavy deadlifts.

Overhead press from rack:

Warmup 3 sets
165 lbs. x 3
185 lbs. x 3
195 lbs. x 2
205 lbs. x 2
215 lbs. x 2
235 lbs. x fail
175 lbs. x 2 sets x 1

Almost got the 235, not following a particular program for the OH press right now. I'll just keep hitting progressively heavier singles until the 235-lb. barrier is shattered.

Bottoms-up bench press - worked up to 285 lbs. x 1, 295 lbs. x fail

Pullups/chinups 5x5

Seated cable rows 2 sets

Olympic bar curls 3 sets

Tricep pushdowns 2 sets

Incline ab board situps 3 sets
