Shoulder Press 5-5-5-5-5 reps

Post loads to comments.

Compare to 120501.

95-105-110-115-120(2)F-95

Last time 120501: 95-105-105-105-110

Tried to keep the rest between sets at about 2 minutes, which clearly was insufficient for the last set.  Should have known going in, as my shoulders still felt fatigued when I started.

jg823 - 31 July 2013 08:42 AM

Last rep of BP, I got stuck under the bar.  Had to wait about 30 seconds or so for someone to spot me up and then I finished the DL.  Seems like I expended a lot of energy trying to get the bar back up off my chest, so when I was done I didn’t have any more gas for shoulder press.  I’ll make it up tomorrow.

Heh, Got video of that?

If there were, it would probably look something like a cockroach pinned on it’s back…with a lot of cussing!

As-fast-as-possible always carries a requirement of “with proper form and full range-of-motion”.  Many people forget this and I see people at my affiliate who cheat movements just to get a few seconds faster on a WOD.  Do you know what they won for their awesome time?  Nothing.—tulatel

I though I posted this earlier today,  forgot to hit “submit post’ ?  Just in case this appears twice I appologize.

Wednesday 130731 5:05 am start,  87 degrees in garage gym w/ cooler on.

WU:  3 rounds of: Sam stretch, 15 OHS w/pvc pipe, 15 abmat sit ups, 15 goodmornings w/45# bar, 12 pull ups, 12 dips.

WOD:
Shoulder Press 5-5-5-5-5 reps

65 - 75 - 85 - 95 - 100 (1 rep) - 95 - 95

I worked on form, trying not to lean back at all to get the bar up, however, I did lean back some at 95 & 100 pounds every time.  Weakness in whatever muscles it takes to get the bar up from shoulders to just over my head. Went with 2:00 minute rests between sets.  May have been able to do 100 pounds with a longer rest.  Did a few extra sets at 95 pounds instead, just working the movement. 

$0: 
Shoulder Press @ 75 pounds   10 reps - then rest 2:00 min - 8 reps (till failure).

This was fun today, a strength WOD was sort of relaxing in a way,  after all the metcons the past few weeks, I needed the change.
