III. Military Press

Reflection: I was at my friend's house for this workout. Started barbell rows again, and I'm weak at it . I couldn't believe how much weight/reps I got out of military press. Before doing shrugs today, I knew that I could do a lot of weight. It's never really been hard to shrug it, but at 230 it was tough to keep my grip...maybe it was just his slippery bar. It feels like my strength has just soared in the past few weeks out of no where. I am probably going to go buy 2 or 4 more 25lb plates tomorrow, or at least within the week.
