Military Press (5/3/1)

  • 5×45#
  • 5×65#
  • 3×85#
  • 5×105#
  • 3×115#
  • 3×130#

Seated Press

  • 10×45#
  • 10×65#
  • 8×75#x4

Upright Row

  • 8×45#
  • 8×65#x4

Hammer Curls

  • 8×25#
  • 8×30#x4

Barbell Preacher Curls

  • 12×30#x2
  • 8×40#x2
  • 8×50#x2


Thus concludes my first cycle of military press. My lifts were:

  • 5×120#
  • 5×125#
  • 3×130#

I ended up beating my planned lifts by an average of 10 pounds, so I will adjust my max accordingly for next cycle.

As for the workout itself, felt okay. I forgot my hardcopy log at home, so I did my military press from memory (luckily, I got it right!) and logged into the blog to get my lifts for my assistance work right. I also noticed that I was pretty close to doing the 531 Bodybuilding template, so I just switched my bicep work to the military day and I will do the tricep work on Bench day and upped the volume on the curls. PR’d on Seated Press and Upright Rows today, so thats good.
