Push & Pull

Work together in perfect harmony. I'm still working hard toward my goals. This afternoon I had focus and drive.

Bent Press - 24 kg (53 lbs.) - 4 x 1 L, R
-All good baby!
PRE - 8

Bent Press - 20 kg (44 lbs.) - 3 x 2 L, R
-Snap!
PRE - 5

Long Push Press - 20 kg - 5 x 4 L, R
-I really detest these torture devices. It's not the pressing; it's the squatting. I do them because they will get me where I need to be. Perhaps one day I'll enjoy them like I do the TGU (which I detested until a month ago).
PRE - 8

Suitcase Deadlifts - 95 lbs. - 5 x 2 L, R
-Right side was no prob, bob. I think another 15 lbs. would be in order.
-That bleepin left grip is holding me back. I never dropped the bar; however, it was close. The right side is so smooth and strong. I want that for the left too. Just keep pulling, pulling, pulling. I hesitate to add much more grip work to my training since my thumbs have been irritated from all the heavy training. Any advice anyone? Adam???!!
PRE - 7

Pull-ups - Purple Band - 3 x 2
-I have two words: three inches.
-Nuff said.
PRE - 9

My protein cravings have subsided for the time being. I have increased my intake at noon significantly. I'll have another egg, a chicken breast, or some steak. If only I could get rid of my chocolate cravings. ;-)

I have to go back and watch Whitley's Bent Press videos. Way to go!

Thanks Sandy! I didn't expect to like the bent press as much as I do. I think it's because it allows me to move a heavier weight, which in turn builds confidence.
