Hrm. I don’t know what to do about my pressing.

I’ve been pretty stagnant on my pressing for some time now. Granted, I’m not trying to really grow this lift, it’s just assistance work. But still, everything else goes up and this just remains stuck, maybe even regressing a bit. Like on the 4th work set, the last couple reps were true grinders — barely got the 8th rep to lock out. Consequently I was tapped for the 5th work set and barely got 3. I did a couple more rest-pause, but still. Why has it been hanging this way for weeks? I’m not sure how to change things up to break through this. Thinking on it.

Otherwise, things chugged along fairly well.

Weighed in at 235# this morning too. Down…down…down.
