    At best, I would just be treading water if I start up again. At worst, I re-injure myself.

    9/29

    OHP
    135x12
    155x8
    155x10
    135x15

    Meadows Row
    90x3x15

    DB Pullovers
    70x10
    80x10
    90x10

    Rope Pressdown/Hammer Curls
    90x3x8/55x3x8

    Prone DB Rear Fly
    20x50
    20x40

    Decent amount of volume today. Wanted to do some chest pressing, but couldn't get a good chest contraction and scrapped it for pullovers. OHP is feeling nice and strong, which has to bode well for putting on some delt mass.

    Solid session, as always.

    Just curious, what's your approximate 5RM for OHP?

    I've done 185 for 5 a few times. I think I got 6 reps once and they were never to failure.

    Thank you, sir. I don't quite get ramped up for OHP like I do on other lifts, but I've gotten much better at it this year.

    Hmmm.... DB pullovers.

    I've seen these done a few ways, how did you do them?

    Perpendicular to the bench with knees, hips, and shoulders flat like a tabletop.

    It's hard to get up for such a relatively light exercise, and yet optimal OHP requires as much tightness as any of the big 3. Definitely an odd combination.

    Hmmm, I think I'm gonna add those in next bench day.

    Haven't done pullovers in a long time.

    10/1

    Speed Pulls (+short mini bands)
    365x6x3

    Front Squat
    225x10
    275x2x3

    Rolling Hypers (weight behind head)
    BW+25x3x20

    Goal of the day was simple: get back my positioning on my pulls. Something had been off for a few weeks and I figured it out today: lack of tightness in the lats and not spreading the floor at the beginning of the pull. I looped the bands under my feet to really force me to stay tight and to pull the bar towards me at the top as the bands pull you forward.
