Strongman Training Day 3: ME Push Presses

Clever thing here. I'm too tired to do more tonight :)

A1. Push Press

2 x 8 x 45#
1 x 95#
3 x 135#
2 x 165#
1 x 185#
3 x 1 x 205#

The 205# is about 85% of my 1RM. Felt pretty good. Had trouble locking them out, but I got them all.
B1. DB Bench Press

3 x 10 x 70#

This is the first time I've benched in... 5 months? New program, I figured I should work on it a bit even if strongman doesn't have any bench events.
C1. JM Press

3 x 10 x 55# 
While doing these, I thought to myself, "this feels redundant." Gonna change it to pullups probably for the rest of this training...

D1. Complexes (Row, Straight-Leg DL, Clean, Front Squat, Good Morning, Squat)

3 x 95#
2 x 95#
1 x 95#

Gotta get my cardio in, right?

Video- it exists, but youtube is being a copyright douche at the moment and wont let me direct link, so check it out here:
