    I found pushing my hips forward slightly at the bottom and remaining in that position helped by CoG a lot on pressing tbh.
    Agreed, hips through and big chest

    Mixed session tonight.

    Squats:

    157.5 x 5/5/5

    Some not so good reps, some better reps. Some a bit too deep, and again letting gaze wander during set.

    Paused bench press:

    92.5 x 3/3/3/3/3

    Again not too bad at all.

    Deadlifts:

    200 x 0

    Dunno what happened here. Perhaps my legs were tired from the squats. Setup never felt particularly right on any of the warm-ups. Maybe I didn't eat enough either, but 200 just did not want to come off the ground tonight.

    SGDLs:

    120 x 5/4

    First time doing these in a long time. These really hurt your hands...

    Some foam rolling and lacrosse ball work, then home.

    Not a bad session this afternoon.

    Squats:

    120 x 5/5

    Light squats.

    Press:

    67.5 x 5/5/5/5/5

    Not too hard, except for last couple of reps on last set as I was a bit fatigued.

    Barbell rows:

    90 x 6/6/6/6

    Not too bad.

    Then home.

    I was around 90 for several years until the start of this one. At 80 kg I would not be able to be sufficiently strong to bench over a plate each side.

    I'm guessing you're maintaining now? Strong lifts anyhow.

    Not sure why you guys thought I was like five ten. If I was that height that 90 kg would be a much more palatable bodyweight.

    Okay session tonight. Third heavy squat session this week.

    Squats:

    165 x 5/5/5

    Hard.

    Paused bench press:

    97.5 x 3

    Shoulders and arms were ****ed, after the other pressing work I have done this week and the squats just tired my out generally. Got the first set but with no spot didn't feel like attempting any more. Instead, I wanted to go home and eat pizza.

    Then went home.
