15/9/3: Overhead Press (Friday) | Deadlifts (Sunday)
It’s also “weigh and measure weekend,” though I don’t know if I’ll snap some progress pictures to share or not. Feeling a little squidgy after entirely too much coffee and some much-needed beer.
OHP Friday frankly kind of sucked. Deadlifting on Sunday went better.
… it’s that “weightlifting” thing I used to do. Five weeks since the break, and, other than needing to stretch my wrist, and not move the pinkie & thumb in certain (read: painful) ways, things are more or less back to where they should be, so I can resume my reset after the rep-calculating work just prior.
15/9/3 – Overhead Press & Squat
Overhead Press: 2×10 @ 45 / 1×10 @ 65
Squat: 1×15 @ 45 / 1×10 @ 135
Overhead Press: 3×5 @ 85 / 3×5+3 @ 95
Squat: 3×5 @ 175 / 3×5+5 @ 195
I curtailed both before the heaviest set in the interest of not overdoing it. I will probably revisit these same weights, just adding the 105 / 215 (or 225) top end sets next session.
Nothing whatsoever to do with Noah’s Ark. Continuing the exploration of the edges of my personal envelope in the form of 2 rep maxes. Today was Overhead Press and Squats.
Overall results were somewhat mixed, but held some surprises.
