Have somewhere to be early today, so I did a “Jack Shit Plus” day. 🙂 That’s main movement, still superset with pulling movements, and then doing the big assistance as well. But no little assistance. Just crank through and go.

Pressing setup wasn’t great today. I really don’t know what gives, but try as I might I just kept getting light-headed when I would start pressing. That first rep would be wobbly, take a moment to collect myself, and then I could progress. But that would take a lot out of me, especially to maintain balance. It’s been going well for a while now, so I’m really not sure why today was off in this regard.

Regardless, doing 7 reps with 155 — when my lifetime PR is 165 — well… makes me excited about my progress. 🙂

I also think my body is going to be happy dropping pull-ups. I would have done them today, but given what I’m about to do I really didn’t want to abuse things too much and start out the next couple days behind the curve. So I just continued to do pulldowns and yeah… my body is going to be happier. I do want to come back to pull-ups tho, just the break will be good.

That’s all. Bye.
