Entry #1004

Free gym session at Impact today. There was nobody else there so I worked the bag. Five rounds, two minutes each. I'm really getting comfortable with whipping the jab out without any problem from my shoulder. At first I was getting into my old habit of stuffing my punches but eventually I found my range. Conditioning is the best it's ever been at and I can go for days. I never got tired rolling with anyone in BJJ, either. Compare that to the 2005 Bullshido throwdown where I verbally submitted to a guy on top of me. The reason? I was too gassed. Pathetic.

Went home, took a long nap, and then lifted.

SSB box squats against monster minis:
250 x 3 x 5

Overhead press:
165 x 3 x 5
> Shoulders were sore from all the boxing, and I'm just easing into things in regards to my shoulder. Really had to fight myself not to just do 185. Also, I'm really digging the thumbless grip on this movement. 

Face pulls:

365, 405, 450 x 5
> Technically a PR. Much better than last week, especially considering that my back was hurting just the day before yesterday from hang cleans. First rep is always the hardest. The pressure in my head was so violent that my music actually sounded distorted.

After that I went to a playground and did~

NG pull-ups:
15, 10, 6, 5, 5

It's worth doing pull-ups there instead of the gym for that optimal neutral-grip set-up.

Fantastic day overall.
