Big win on the overhead press today, nailed the 3 x 3 and felt like there were a couple reps left in the tank. It was with the suspected “heavy” bar, but with the lone set of bumper plates (which I suspect might be light).
Net-net, I don’t think it matters that much so I’m going to take the win.
Come to think of it, I ought to be closing in on a 1 x bodyweight press.
I’ve been thinking for a while now about having a “high” volume day. I like higher-frequency lifting, but do miss the pump.
I also decided to straighten out my barbell row at a lighter weight. I was getting sloppy. Sometimes you just gotta work that mind-muscle connection and force blood into the muscle, brah.
In the past, I’d try high-frequency & high-volume but would just get injured. I noticed a lot of the youtubers doing the high-frequency training (Gabe Malone, Damien Pezutti, Clarence0) tend to stick to just a few high-weight work sets and only occasionally have a high volume session.
All-in-all a good workout, think I’ll stick to it once a week and use it as an excuse to eat a big meal.
