Fitness Log 2013-07-16: Bench (PR!), Snatch

Bench

  • Warmup: 45 lbs x 5, 85 x 5, 110 x 5, 135 x 3, 165 x 2
  • 185 x 5, 5, 9
  • 205 x 1, 225 x 1, 235 x 1 (PR!), 240 x –
  • DB curls: 20 x 10, 30 x 8, 40 x 6, 40 x 6, 30 x 8, 20 x 10 (supersetted with singles)

Great day for the bench.  Not only did I hit the 9 rep streak on the 5+ set but then I went for some heavy singles and hit a +5 lb PR.

Snatch Push Presses

  • 45 lbs x 5
  • 65 x 5
  • 75 x 5
  • 85 x 3

My knee is feeling a little better today but I decided to keep today all upper body just to give it more rest and to generally recover from yesterday’s squats.  I hit the knee area with some serious trigger point therapy last night with a roller, lacrosse ball, thumbs, and whatever else I could get in there with.  I could feel a weird nodule at the top of the big calf muscle on the outside back of the leg and I attacked this with a vengeance.  This seemed to immediately help and turned the weird lock-up pain into a dull soreness which is still lingering but it is much better than before.

In any case, I wanted to keep the Tuesday snatch work tradition so I figured it would be a good time to throw in some behind-the-neck snatch push presses.  I worked up slowly given that this is a new movement for me.  It went great.  I didn’t expect to get it up to 135.
