Still Struggle with Hand Release

Another brutally hot and humid day. My back was much better through the night and it was tons easier to stand up out of bed this morning.

Warm-up

  • 20 PVC Passes
  • Bench Press
    • 10×45
    • 8×95
    • 6×135
    • 4×165
    • 2×180

MAX Bench Press (200#)

One better than Saturday with 16 reps.

100 HR Push-ups

We decided to switch it up for the final two weeks and try hand releases. I’ve never been good at this and can’t beat the time I set way back in 2013. Today was not the day either. I did threes through 54 and then had to go to doubles. It took me 6:03! Probably halfway through or more I realized that putting my arms above my head to rest at the bottom was probably a bad idea. I need to rest with arms down to sides.

Incline Bench Press

  • 3 Sets @ 3 Weights
    • MAX Reps
  • 3:00 Rest between sets

12-11-11 @ 135#
16-15-15 @ 115#
20-20-21 @ 95#

I don’t really like the feeling of incline on my shoulders.

6 Sets

  • 12 EZ Bar Skull Crushers (56#)
  • 1:00 Rest
