Today’s workout started with 5×5 constant weight shoulder presses. Taking last week’s 5×5 shoulder press progression into consideration, Dave L. suggested that 77# would be a good weight. I did two warm-up sets of 35# and 45#, then four rounds of 77#. I Still felt good, so I did 82# on my last set. I heard that we’ll be doing shoulder presses every week, but adding weight each week, so I’m planning to do 5×82# at that time.
Ring Pushups (scale reps as necessary)
I have never done ring push-ups before. They are crazy hard. I can do 25 push-ups easy, but could barely get through 5 ring push-ups. I was able to do the first 21 strict by breaking them into sets, but on the second and third rounds I had to do knee push-ups. I didn’t make up any time on my double unders. My timing was all off.
