Press PR – 205×1.

The day went well. Good work-up. Top set was 195 – which 2 weeks ago I did on a Joker set for an easy 3. Thus, I wanted to get at least 4 today. As you can see, it started to go up but sticking point – opted against grinding it because hitting 205 was more important. And that happened. I was a little nervous because I think I’m nearing my limit before I have to reset, but it went up easier than I expected.

Press. 205×1. PR. . Bar x 10, 85×5, 100×5, 125×3, 155×5, 175×3, 195×3, 205×1, 135×10, 135×10, 135×7. . 1+ week. Joker. Superset face pulls during warmup. Medium width neutral grip cable rows during work sets. Finish with wide grip lat pulldowns. . Top work set @ 195 was done for an easy 3 2 weeks ago on a Joker, so I wanted to try for 4. Nope. Could have ground it out, but grinding was not the plan – setting a new PR @ 205 was. Done. 🤘 . Body feeling better in some ways, beat up in others. Looking forward to next week’s deload. Plus, might be breaking from the plan slightly if something comes together. 😁 . Gym music? That’s why I was listening to the new @allthatremains on my headphones. . . . #gym #press #militarypress #pr #ignitefitnez #liftlocal #wendler531 #531 #allthatremains #victimofthenewdisease

Still, not sure how much more I have left in me – reset is coming. But I’m still very happy with the progress I’ve been making.

Next week is deload, and I’m certainly going to take it easy – not a “7th week” protocol. I need to just get some blood into areas and let some things heal up. For sure tho, there’s at least 1 more 3/5/1+Jokers cycle ahead of me.

Ah dang it – forgot to do hex DB holds. Ah well.
