Press+ Tuesday: Axle OHP 105 kilos x 6

SINCE my bench press has plateaued already I decided to swap it and prioritise the overhead. I will continue doing max efforts sets till near failure on bench, at the same loading I use on the axle, and focus on staying tight in the pause. I guess the OHP took a lot of pressing strength away... I was sure I could bench more than nine reps of that weight. I reckon I may need my left shoulder needled also: it's not moving as smoothly as it used to.

All the same, I still managed a significant new personal record on the axle. Based on my current progression, I may be repping 120 kilos in a few weeks... a pretty amazing prospect considering I've never properly pressed 120 overhead even once.
