Made it to the gym at 5 AM and really got my morning underway. I didn't do any bag work and focused on ample sets of big (for me!) lifts. Working rep range was in the 6-7 rep range today max effort on the last rep.
I didn't feel 100% strong going in today but after warming up I was able to add reps or weight on each lift except OHP, and I matched my last best effort on it even after progressing incline and wide grip presses not long prior.
I need to get back to doing rows regularly but I've been so focused on pull up variations that it's kept my back pretty fried. I did get some landmine deadlifts in this weekend but today I exhausted my back doing long holds and negatives on a few different kinds of pull ups. Since I use my back during the day I have to be careful how far I take it into the red zone when I'm working out. It's getting stronger steadily though!
Because there's always room for em I threw in some AMRAP sets on the TRX suspension trainer afterward, and have even been bothering my kettlebells for some quick focused sets here at home all morning. I like to focus on explosive movement with them after some good strength training and it's pretty cool to keep a pump all morning from getting back to it Having a good day for fitness y'all! Hope everyone else makes theirs a good one too.
[Bar] going up on a Tuesday.
