Pretty good session.
I bounced back from the OHP failure of last week. The top set was heavy, but was controlled. I'm looking forward to seeing if I can hit 180 next week. The lower back was a little sore. I had to be aware of it. I belted up on my working sets, it really makes a difference when I am having lower back issues.
Bumped up the ramping sets on the close grip bench press by 5lbs. I felt it on the top set.
The fat man pull ups are actually coming along. Seems like every week I'm adding more reps. My short term goal on these is 3 sets of 10. After that I will go for 3 sets of 11, 3 sets of 12, etc. Not sure what the end game is. I suppose the ultimate goal is to start knocking out pull ups. As my weight goes down I think this is more feasible.
Finished with my bicep/shoulder tri set. Those 3 smaller movements done back to back actually get this big man breathing a bit heavy. Good times.
All in all I felt good after this session.
One last note, I am down to 276.2 pounds as of yesterday morning. 1 pound away from my initial goal of 275. I'm already mentally preparing for a run at 260.
