Had a long day, exhausted from work, but staying positive! Two really solid workouts this weekend. Managed to pull 405 lbs deadlifting for a pair of doubles, no straps or chalk. Also managed 4 reps of 135 lbs strict overhead press. I felt like i had a fifth in me, but I lost my air at the bottom of the fourth and bottomed out.
Considering both those weights used to be my one rep max for those lifts, respectively, It’s very encouraging to see progress on this scale, small as it is.
