Stick with the knee wraps, it gets easier and you will soon want someone to be able to wrap them tighter and tighter

What brand, model and length are you using?

Titan, KLA 2000, 2m. Wife got them for me for Christmas by mistake and I kept them always thinking I'd work them in one day.

KLA 2000 Gold Knee Wraps 2.0M

One thing is they are stiff as a board, so should I beat them up some to see if they aren't so stiff? Or is stiff good?

Also tying them off is a complete bast**d! It's hard to get that the end under the last loop, and when I do I pull it a lttle bit tight and that last loop feels like a tourniquet!

I'm just looping right now, but maybe another pattern is better? I'm trying the different ones I saw on your video, but until you get under the bar (when you're already tired btw) it's doesn't tell me much other than how tight they feel.

Any advice on this is appreciated. I'm not planning on using them in a meet for quite a while, but my thinking is to use them as an overload after my main work like I do with the RAM. Not sure if that is a good plan though.

Thanks fellas. Jim captures it perfectly though. I was down on this session a bit, but it actually is pretty solid for me. I was bummed thinking I was strict pressing 135 for 5 late last year, so push pressing it for sets of 5 isn't too impressive. However, after all that other stuff, it's not too bad I guess.

It's always amazing to me how quickly shoulder pressing drops when you don't do it often and especially how quickly it fatigues in a session, while bench pressing for really takes much more for me to start falling off that much.

However, smaller muscle group, etc. I should just stop griping and fix it.

And I'm sore as a mother and pressed for time today. Instead of squeezing in a rushed deadlift session, I'll take the extra days rest and eat. More time tomorrow and won't be as stressed or sore.

There you go.

Indeed, the context of the past session is almost never recorded on paper. There are so many variables that come into play. I have often done the same thing Mike, thinking I regressed when I actually did not. In addition, progression comes slower for us older guys and thus it can seem we regressed easier.

Hope you have a terrific pullday tomorrow!

Great work man! As squatter said the context of the sessions makes a big difference. You may not have gone back on overhead after all.

Mike, I did a lot of pressing, got away from it, and when I went back, I was down a lot more than I thought I would be....Super Slim Jim is right, different rules for us "Masters"

The iron is there during my times of happiness, sadness and anger. The iron is there available through the 4 seasons and inclement weather. The iron is there to either comfort me or motivate me. The Iron manages to show me how strong I am or how humble I need to be. The iron does not yell, but it always demands respect. The iron is not a disciplinarian, but when disrespected, I feel it for a long time. The iron does not love or hate, but we definitely share a strong bond. And no matter how far I stay away or for how long, the iron is there, waiting to be lifted.

I'm pulling for ya Mike, expect big numbers
Try to refrain from looking at every stop along the way with such scrutiny, see your destination and enjoy the ride there.

I am the opposite, my bench press tanks really fast when I lay off it for a while but my shoulder presses stay up there pretty well. I thinks it's probably because most guys focus so heavily on the bench, it's engrained in their system. I was never much of a bench press guy, I always opted for dips and presses.

Probably a smart move to wait a day on the pulls, you'll have more focus for the session if you're not rushed. Bad things can happen when us geezers rush the lifts. Smash some Deadlifts Mike. . .
