Push Press PR

On Thursday I golfed like usual. While out on the course Alex texted to ask if I wanted to play Warwick Hills on Friday. I got the go ahead to take the day off work at the last minute and had a lot of fun. A lot of people may not believe it, but 2 days of golfing out in the heat took a lot out of me. Was in bed early and slept in, but got out in the garage around 11:30 today.

Bench Press

  • 10×45#
  • 10×95
  • 6×135
  • 4×165
  • 2×195
  • 2×215
  • 2×235
  • 3x2x255

Bumped 10# over the last time. I set my 3RM with 255 a few months ago, so was happy to get all 3 sets. Felt like it got easier each set.

Push Press

  • 10×45#
  • 8×95
  • 6×135
  • 4×165
  • 3×195
  • 2×215
  • 1×235
  • 1×245
  • 1×250 (PR)


The program called for three singles at 85%, which comes out to just under 210 pounds. In my notes planning out the day I already had decided to go 235 and then increase by feel. It was feeling good, so I went for the PR. Not sure what I’ll do for the next two weeks now that call for an increase of 5-10#. I’ll probably stay around 235-245 and then go for the big PR in the final week of the program.

Accessory

  • 3×15 Pallof Press (CS Blue)
  • 3×10 DB Side Raises (20#)
  • 3×10 Bent-over DB Side Raises (20#)

That wraps up the 8th week. Three more and then a week dedicated to setting new maxes in the shoulder press, bench press, and push press.

Conditioning

  • 1,000m Ski Erg
  • 100 Lateral hops (over line)
  • 100 H2H KBS (50#)
  • 100 Lateral hops
  • 1,000m Ski Erg

rope-snappedThe plan was to do 100 double unders, but when I got to the rope I forgot that the rings were hanging in the way. I tried a couple reps and nailed a ring right off the bat. So I thought maybe I could go facing another wall next to my rack, but was a little worried about the car behind me. Two reps in, I caught the rope on the barbell rack and it snapped.

Quick thinking decided I would do lateral hops over a line and get on with it. I kept wanting to stop on the kettlebell swings, but went unbroken. My splits on the Ski Erg were 3:57.8 and 3:56.8. The computer said the time between was exactly 6:00, which is kind of crazy. Finished at 13:58 on the clock.

I’m flying out to Minneapolis/St. Paul tonight a few days.
