Shouldering a New Load

Day 2 of the new Strongman training split was ME Upper day. Oh push presses, how I have missed thee...

A1.   Hip/Shoulders Mobility/Prehab

B1.   Push Press

8 x 45#
8 x 95#
3 x 135#
2 x 155#
2 x 2 x 185#
2 x 3 x 185#

Jessica told me that the first double at 185# would have been laughed off the platform so I did an extra set just because.

C1.   1-Armed Rows

4 x 7 x 110#

C2.   Front Squat Holds

30s x 185#
2 x 30s x 225#

Haha the 185# was so light I was talking through it and laughed. So I went up. The 225# was right.

D1.   2" band Pressdown

3 x 8 x 2" band

D2.   3" Pinch Grip

3 x 25s x 20# (3 plates)

Man my pinch grip suuuuucks these days, but it was good to get it in.

Overall, a great session. Got home from work when I wanted to, training took a little bit longer than I wanted, but hey, strongman.
