Week 2.. Staying Patient and Building Momentum (Week 2 - Day 1 - Overhead Press & Wide Grip Bench)

..I really think that doing some basic strength progressions with OHP and then a lot of high rep wide-grip bench volume is going to be a good addition to my week that will build pressing strength back up without negatively effecting recovery. As I've written about in the past, I can train a ton of volume without getting overtrained, it's the high-% work that crushes me afterwords and really affects my mental health. Doing a lot more volume and speed, and being selective about when I go above 95% (in any lift, in the 1-3 rep range) seems to be the name of the game..
