Block 3, Week 4, Day 2 - ME OH/BP

Since I was unsure how my thumb would fare for training, I decided to do no cleans which meant no log today.  This narrowed my choices down to axle push press out of the rack or BB close grip bench press.  Since I did a bench variation last time, I tentatively opted for the push presses today, pending how my thumb felt.  I also nixed snatches due to time limitations since my work schedule changed today and I had to train in the morning instead of the afternoon (i.e. I had to be done by a certain time versus train as long as I wanted to).

Despite feeling less warmed up than usual due to skipping snatches, these actually felt good today which was shocking since usually the only OH that feels good is split jerks.  I did drop the 3rd back off set since I was starting to feel it in my thumb after the second one.  And yes, that is my max effort work.  My shoulders are stupid and weak and I have always pressed mostly with my legs, which has worked just fine for me for the last 14 years.  No harm in working on stuff I suck at though.

That was all since I had to shower and get to work.  I'll be down in Richmond visiting family this weekend so hopefully will be training at The Weight Room again Saturday AM.
