Great session tonight. Felt sluggish and tired heading in but got going eventually and once I got the shirt on everything flew up. The full ROM 170 was the smoothest I've ever pressed that weight. Really pleased with it.
Assistance on this programme is still brutal but at least now I know how to judge the weights better so I can almost complete all of the reps on each exercise. It's humbling to use the lower weights but it gets the job done and it seems to be making me stronger so I'll take it.
I have video from Tuesday and tonight but I want to do a VoiceOver so I will put it up tomorrow or maybe after squats on Sunday.
