Sleep Deprived

Been a long week of late nights finishing an electronics project for the family vacation. Didn’t crawl in bed until 3am last night. In the garage around 9:30 before packing the car. Not sure if I’ll make it to a gym at all this week, but hope to for at least one bench session.

Bench Press

  • 10×45#
  • 10×95
  • 6×135
  • 6×165
  • 3×185
  • 3x3x205

Just an easy 70% for the working sets today. Was hoping it would leave me fresh to push some limits on the shoulder press, but wasn’t sure about the lack of sleep.

Shoulder Press

  • 10×45#
  • 6×95
  • 3×115
  • 3×135
  • 3×145
  • 3×155
  • 3×165
  • 3×170
  • 3×171.25 (PR)

Shoulder press is such a bitch. I did 3×170 in February of 2016, but barely squeezed out the 3rd with it today, so I went super small on the final increase. I really tightened up and knocked out the triple surprisingly easy compared to the previous set.

Then the damn Jehovah’s came walking up the driveway.

Accessory Superset

  • 3×10/10 Half Kneeling Single Arm Bottoms Up KB Press (30#)
  • 3×10 Landmine Twists (45# + 45#)

I really have to go slow to prevent my left arm from losing control. Made it through the second and third sets without a reset, which I haven’t been able to do.

Time for a week at the lake! I loaded my weight vest and rings into the trunk and plan to run most days.
