15/9/3 – Overhead Press & Squats

We’ll call this one “Pyrrhic Victory,” since it was able to be performed in lieu of going to softball, since, naturally, the only moves that cause acute discomfort are throwing, swinging a bat, and all-out sprints. Since that’s about all I do, other than stand around,  talk shit to my teammates and opponents, and sweat like a motherfucker, it’s not exactly something I can perform in any kind of meaningful capacity.

A late lunch hour (230-330) was spent exploring those moves, discovering that they were too uncomfortable to be done at game speed, and subsequently stretched carefully, along with 20 minutes of moderately brisk walking on an increasingly steep treadmill while reading Joe Haldeman’s The Forever War.

Warmup:

Squat: 1×10 @ 45 / 1×10 @ 95 / 1×5 @ 135

Overhead Press: 1×10 @ 45 / 1×10 @ 65

Work Sets:

Overhead Press: 3×5 @ 100 / 3×5 @ 110 / 3×5+2 @ 120

Squat: 3×5 @ 155 / 3×5 @ 175 / 3×5 +7 @ 195
