Got to the gym a little late, had to rush through the end but hit required reps on all the assistance. Workout done in 49min.
I should probably reset my press because that top set was done with a “by any means necessary” kind of form… Pause at the bottom, drive hard up and back, grind a little on the last rep. I don’t think I have excessive hip drive going on like you see in some techniques but still the form was different than the other sets. Otherwise felt pretty solid. On the other hand I really want to press 135 so haha maybe push on? It’s hard to train smart, too tempting to be an idiot

It was my wedding anniversary this past weekend. I’ve been pretty good with meal prepping the last 6 months, but the kids went to grandma’s house and we went out to eat 4 times. Hit a new bodyweight PR this morning of 174.6 lbs, that’s nothing but I’m pretty sure that’s near the heaviest I’ve ever weighed. Saturday lunch was a corn beef reuben with curly fries, dinner was angel hair in a white sauce with lump crab meat and asparagus, perfectly cooked and a huge plate of it. Then we split peanut butter gelato balls dipped in chocolate, coconut amaretto cream pie, and crème brû·lée pie, so fucking good. Sunday morning I had something called a pancake roll-up, an oversized pancake rolled around eggs, ham, peppers, onions, and cheddar (x2) with a side of home fries. Lunch a huge plate of nachos supreme and thai Chile skirt steak tacos. Heaven. Dinner at a family party was baked ziti and meat balls.
On a lifting note, I did a bunch of curls, tricep extensions, and delt raises on Saturday, and that seems to have made my elbows sore during bench, so maybe I’ll cut that shit out. Yesterday I went on a 2.5 mile hike too so I wasnt totally a fat ass.
