  • 360lbs: 5

Overhead Press

  • 207.5lbs: 1,1,1
    • 1st set: heard (and felt) something similar to a knuckles cracking from my clavical


  • 317.5lbs: 3
    • Mixed grip, felt pain in my left wrist
  • 317.5lbs: 5
    • Double overhand grip. No pain in the left wrist


  • Haven't done heavy standing overhead presses since I was a member at Columbia Lake Health Club. It's been a while...
  • Deadlifts: going to start off light and move up from here. Now that I train in my basement home gym, I have my own bar & chalk (didn't use chalk today) so I'm going to be deadlifting without straps. Doing sets of 5 to develop my grip strength.

Ever since I started taking strength training seriously, I was bitten by the Iron Bug. Then it burrowed under my skin and laid eggs in my heart. Now those eggs are hatching and I... the feeling is indescribable.
