Very surprised by today's result. This was +42 over the last time I did these (also 4's) and this was an all-time PR x4! Just barely, but that puts today's mark beyond the last PR 4x set 11 months ago. I'd say we've got a little momentum going toward worlds! Also, I forgot to mention I'm pretty sore from the squatting this week (especially SSB). So there's that too!

Right shoulder was sore at the outset today, though it didn't really bother me. I only mention it for documentation purposes. Last time I did this was last September and smashed an all time PR. This bested that mark by .01 m/s! Super small gain, but I'm pleased that I did it at all considering I haven't practiced in over six months. Solid pressing!

Took a shot at a PR on my 3rd set. Bad decision. It was much too big of a jump from my 2nd to my 3rd. And even still, it would have been close. Lots of pressing volume this week. I plan to beat my bench press into submission.
