New 1RM PR on the (military) press at 97.5kg (214.5lbs)!

Dammit, aiming for a 2RM with 137.5 kg (302.5 lb.) on the #BenchPress but settled for 5 sets of 1 (managed to do 3 sets of 1 rep 2 weeks ago).

Bar touching chest of course.

Notes:

Body weight: 87.7 kg (192.9 lb)

Squat

  • Performing a vertical jump before the main work set of squat seem to make it easier.
  • Consciously squeezing my shoulder blades, upper back & lats together makes my core feel much more rigid during the set. Doesn't feel like the weight is going to fold my body in half.

Bench

  • Gripping the bar as hard as possible before unracking the bar makes the rep feel easier.

Dips

  • The heavier the dumbbell, the more of a pain in the ass it is to wrap my dipping belt around it and wear it.

Deadlift

  • Check my paper log; was supposed to do 200 kg (440 lbs) this week but forgot I did them last week -_-;;
