Strict press
205 x 5
227.5 x 2
255 x 0
Weak day, but a good test of my new training approach. A maximum of two attempts just in case the first was a fluke and then move on, blasting through assistance work and getting a good pump.

175 x 8, 8, 8
155 x 10

Neutral-grip pull-ups

Lying dumbbell rows
8, 10, 12, 12

Decline push-ups

Keg curls
160 x 15, 12

Gonna change up this day for next cycle since I've failed two 255 attempts now. Not sure exactly, but I'm thinking I'll try push press. The heavier load has worked before for my strict press when I got stuck.

Finished this session in 75 minutes. That's crazy for me, especially with two max attempts.


  1. You ever think of adding in First Set Last for AMRAPS? I found having that did a good chance of providing 2 opportunities to succeed. I either hit something awesome in the top set or I make up for it on the backoff set.

  2. Oops, I just now saw this comment, sorry dude. That's a good idea! I've thought about it before but now might be a good time to implement it.
