Thanks Moe!

Boy, I got gobsmacked today! I was not prepapred for how freaking HARD today's presses were. JB, seems like that's a weakness right there! A lack of shoulder strength. I was not 100% and I've never done seated presses before, but goodness everything was freaking heavy today.

JBPP week 5

warmups: rowing and a lot of shoulder and arm mobility band stuff

Seated BNP:
8x 115 (I thought this was going to be my last warmup set. Uh, no.)
8x 125 (Default PR, but I'm a little surprised this was so much harder than standing OHP)

Seated Military:
8x 115
7x 125 (Default PR too)

Seated Arnold Press, these went downhill fast after a promising beginning:
30s x 15, 12
23s x 15
18sx 15

Band Face Pulls, medium:
4x 15

Bent over Reverse Flys, with a little english as the sets went on:
4x 15x 23

View the carnage if you like.

BNP 8x 115:
BNP 8x 125:
Military 8x 115:
Military 6x 125:
Arnolds with 30s, and watching them now, I didn't even lock out the last few of these so not as good as I thought:

Now I can make some excuses and whatnot, but honestly, that's a lack of shoulder strength right there. Chalk that up as something to work on JB.

Deadlifts tomorrow. Not going to take those lightly! I'm going to assume they are going to kick my ass. Maybe that'll help.

There you go. I've been wicked busy too, but I'll be around in logs tonite and tomorrow as my schedule is easing up considerably the next few days.

Hack away at anything which isn't essential. Do what you love, and do it often. Fazc.

Everything competes for recovery so more assistance is not always the best idea. miked96
