Entry #1117

Swiss bar press:
140 x 3
160 x 3
180 x 7
> On the one hand, my strength has returned after a bad session last week. On the other, this is exactly where I was almost two months ago, only I had a harder time on the last rep (almost failed, let out a yell and got it). I'm not losing weight or eating poorly, either. Will wait and see if this choice of paused assistance work is doing me favors or not before I change things. At least it's worth noting that I feel stronger at the bottom now and it might have saved that last rep there, as well as last week when I stumbled in the middle of the set and lost momentum.

Swiss bar pause press with FG:
107.5 x 5 x 10
> Switched the 2.5 lb plate from side to side each set. I felt the difference but it wasn't a big deal.

V-handle chin-ups:
11, 11, 11, 10, 10
> My chins have improved so much, and it's showing in my lat development.
