Re: New start, new log.

Tuesday 6/3/14 - 5/3/1 1's week press
Press 5x105, 3x120, 5x135, Joker sets 1x145, 1x155, 1x165
Accessory work; conditioning 50# 1 arm DB waiter carries, left hand down length of gym, right hand back, 5 DB swings after each down/back, 3 rounds without ever putting the DB down, was fun and actually had be out of breath.

I was playing this workout by ear, my back felt fine from having tweaked it Saturday, but I was prepared to switch this week to a deload week if it gave me any trouble, but no such problems, felt solid. Press singles felt really strong, probably had another 10# jump in me but decided not to push it today, that's how I always end up injuring myself. Not sure why my press is getting so much stronger proportionately to my other lifts, especially coming back from shoulder surgery, but I'm only 20# away from a bodyweight press. My previous best before I hurt myself was 1x170#, and I still feel like there's lots of room for progress. I'm not complaining, but now I need to get all my other lifts to go up like this...
m.48.5'7".185# Current lifts: Bench 245#, Squat 335#, Deadlift 405#, Press 170#
