Entry #999


SSB box squats:
310 x 3 x 5
> Middle day of the week is meant to be a break from squats, whether it's using bands or going lighter.

Overhead press:
95 x 5
135 x 5
155 x 5
185 x 1
155 x 8
> Hell yes, first time overhead pressing with a barbell since the injury. 185 made my shoulder hurt, though, so I took it back down. Amazingly, on the last set I tried a thumbless grip and it worked wondrously well. In fact, it made all the difference and I probably could have gone back up to 185 with it. Awesome. 

365 x 5
405 x 5
445 x 4
> Tightness and power was feeling lackluster. Really psyched myself up and did better on the last set.

12, 6, 8
> Banged my knee on the safety bar on the last rep. Hurt like hell and had to take it easy on the walking for the rest of the night, but it's better today.
