Oh dear
Shirt on, left high, no belt

Press way harder than expected. Shirt rode up and choked me out.
165kgs x FAIL
World's worst side spot hand out from Hazzard's mate
165kgs x 1
Bobbled at the top. Probably would get red lights.
165kgs x 1
Clean, easy lockout, touched at the right spot, threw it up and held at lockout. Press call was maybe a bit fast but I'll take it.

Finished there as after all of the isht, I wanted to end on a high. Here's an incomplete list of all of the things that went wrong tonight:

- my elbow hurts
- I was cramping in my hips from squats so was struggling to get tight
- late to the gym so not enough food
- was 2kgs light this morning
- no pre WO or caffeine
- didn't wash my shirt so it was loose
- rushed my warm-ups
- had the world's worst handout on the first attempt

I could go on but you get the idea On the plus side I know that even if everything in the world goes wrong come meet day, I can still press my opener

Video to follow.
