Strict press
190 x 3
215 x 3
240 x 0
235 x 1

255 x 0
Drop-set to 225 x 2

On the press I'm just plain weaker from the weight loss. It's time to stop attacking the same poundages week after week and start succeeding on some reps. My other 3 lifts are all at a good place.

  1. You consider resetting your training max for press? That and chasing the topset with the first set percentages for max reps was helpful for me.

  2. Exactly my thinking on the reset, which is something I hold off from doing as much as possible. I'll take your advice on the first set last scheme you've suggested to me now and before, too.

    1. Hah, I'm a broken record, what can I say. Looking forward to seeing how it pans out for you.
