Nice!  Still going strong on the volume progression w/the press I see

It's actually feeling really good with the extra week before rotating to the same exercise.

3A Upper. Really liking the landmine pressing. Lots of bracing happening. Skullcrushers I switched to a barbell and paused on my forehead. I was adding too much zazz when I was doing them behind my head. Rack pulls are bb style. Just flexing the lats back, shoulder blades together. Slow squeeze up and down. Pause on pins.

Week 1. Doing one of Josh Bryant’s programs for a change. Felt very easy for the percentage prescribed sets. Very happy since I haven’t touched over 110k on the barbell in ages. 

 

Those functional iso’s might have limited weight due to the lack of a training partner working the pins. 

 

I’ll leave the power twister stuff for my second days. 

Bench Press 132.5k x 2r
Bench Press CAT 90s Rests 110k x 4 x 3r
Bench Press Functional Iso 100k x 3 x 6r
a) CS DB Row 60e x 3 x 12r
b) Chain Fly 3c x 3 x 12r
Hammer Curl 50e x 3 x 6r

Good to see you still at it man!  One of the earlier guys I followed.  I think Iron Radio was the platform we first met up.  Keep at it bud!
