Swiss bar press:
145 x 5
165 x 3
185 x 5
> Strength is down on this. Felt tight and explosive and by all indications what I would feel on a PR day - just didn't have what it took for more.
Swiss bar press with Fat Gripz:
120 x 5 x 10
> Huge reset, but with pauses and shorter rests this felt just as hard as 135. I think what I want to do next cycle is reset down to maybe 115, ape Emevas with the pauses, and get some 1-1.5 lb plates to microload. I feel like I started at a good weight with this but the 5 lb increases just had me plateauing too fast.
