Fronties - worked up to 185lbs. Sweet. Next goal is to double
Push press- worked up to 135lbs (it’s about time I did this bc I’ve been wishy washy about OHPing for too long.)
CG bench 5x5 (5 counts down)
Pull ups 5 sets
This is something I can relate to. When you know that you have to get calories in but can’t bring yourself to chew food, that’s when you start putting things in a blender. It’s easier to drink than eat. My go-to liquid meal is a scoop of whey, a banana, some oats and peanut butter. That’s an easy 500ish calories that you can chug down in a minute. A Magic bullet is a great investment.
Squat 225lbsx1; 245lbsx1; 255lbsx1; 265lbsFail; 265lbsFail. I was falling forward out of the hole too much to safely finish both attempts at 265 (see insta). I also didn’t have enough bounce out of the hole. There was too much fear today and not enough anger. Each rep today felt like I was running away from the weight instead of attacking it.
So I have more things to work on in my next cycle- attacking the weight.
