Trained in rain and mud again. Miserably enjoying it in a mental exercise type of way, especially after listening to WWI combatants living in sopping wet trenches for months at a time from my history podcasts.

Overhead press
162 x 5
182 x 5
207 x 5
> 5 week is always the toughest, probably more because my fast-twitch makeup has always been disproportionately good at the 1-3 rep range. Struggled to get the 5th.

Close-grip bench:
242 x 5 x 10

Weighted chins:
70 x 6 x 12
> Rain and mud kept me from getting a good grip so I landed my feet between every rep and increased the volume to compensate. Healthier on my pec tendons anyway.

8 minutes of rear delts, external rotators, curls
