Entry #1126

Got sick on Saturday and still have the sniffles.

Swiss bar press:
145 x 3
165 x 3
185 x 7
> A month ago I did this for 5 and noted that I would stay the course and just be patient. I'm glad I got to see the results of my stoicness tonight.

Swiss bar pause press:
115 x 5 x 10
> Rushing a little and had to rest-pause a little bit on the very last three reps. 

V-handle chin-ups:
12, 11, 11, 11, 11

12, 10
> At the park. I noticed improvements when adding some extra tricep work, both with band pressdowns or dips.

Ring holds for biceps and kettlebell curls

External dumbbell rotations 


  1. Staying the course on 5/3/1 pays off so much. It really is a program that rewards patience. Good work on the press.

  2. Thanks man. I've gleamed it from 3 positive lifting sources and you're one of them. We're so inundated with the mainstream telling us to try X program to immediately bust through plateaus that many of us never even learned the concept of bad days properly.
