After-lunch workout with mixed results.

Dumbbell seated shoulder press
30s (10), 35s (5), 37s (5, 5), 40s (4)


Bench press (small bench, 6 holes)
95 x 10
115 x 7
125 x 4
135 x 2
135 x 1

A little bit below par with these.


12-10-8-6-4-2 rft
Push press @ 95lb, from a clean
Push ups
Time = 6:18

I did this in August with 85lb from a rack. I was warming up with 65lb, then 85lb, and felt really comfortable, so I upped the weight. Also, I wanted to use cleans whenever I picked up the bar, rather than a rack. I felt like I took long rests, although not too often. I expected the extra weight and starting with a clean would slow me down, so I was really surprised when I checked my watch at the end and saw that I was over 3 minutes quicker. The presses felt really good, with plenty of hip power. 6:18 is two thirds of my previous time!
