Entry #872

Yesterday went well, but I've decided I want to switch.

Overhead press:
132.5 x 5
152.5 x 5
172.5 x 8
> Like a 1 lb improvement. Considering that this has been my slowest lift to progress on and that I'm still in the midst of decreasing calorie intake while losing weight, I'll chalk this up as a success.

Dumbbell military press:
70 x 5
70 x 5
70 x 4
60 x 5
50 x 8
> Holy crap, way harder than sitting down. I can power up the 90s relatively easily for 8, but standing with dumbbells is far different (though I've never OHP'd after doing OHP, either).

NG pull-ups:
10, 9, 6, 4, 3
> Being strict with myself and discounting any partial reps.

Fat Gripz dumbbell curls:
32.5 x 14, 12, 12
> Overstimated these. FG really aren't super hard to hold or anything, people just don't do enough functional grip work so when they try these they're blown the hell away.

Walking around at 227. Overall a 10 lb loss in 4 weeks. I'm very happy with this. Slow is the way to go for me.
