Press Day

27 May 2015


Standing front press 135x5, 155x2, 185x1, 205x1, 215x1, 220x1, 225x1, 225xfail, 220 x 2s x 1

Lower back and legs were very sore today, so pressing was very hard. Still got 4 reps with 220 or above, not a total fail. Had to grind some of the reps so hard I thought my eyes were going to pop out.

Pulldowns 30 total reps, heavy

Lateral raise 50 total reps

Preacher curl machine 50 total reps

DB extensions 50 total reps

Grind away. Is that rep scheme 3/5/1?

Nevermind, just read your "Program Decisions" post. Singles for press and DL.

Yeah, DL was the only lift I didn't make much (any) progress on back when I first ran 5/3/1. So I figure the same will be the case with the rack pull. Also I hate deadlifting for reps.

Grinding out OHP is especially brutal. As you're grinding it out, you're certain that you can finish the rep; but you also know that if you don't breath in about three seconds that you'll pass out and keel over.
