Upper in the Basement

Got a late start on this one:

Warm Up - 12k Kettlebell
KB Snatches - 8/8 x 16k, 24k; 5/5 x 28k, 28k, 28k
Barbell - Overhead Press - 8 x 20k, 65lbs; 5 x 40k, 40k, 40k, 40k
Push Ups on KBs - 5 x BW, BW, BW, BW
Renegade Rows - 8/8 x 16k; 5/5 x 20k

I am pushing the limits of my shoulder stability with this session. I'll focus on stretching and mobility work tomorrow. I need to do my side bridges on Monday and focus on pressing with my lats on Tuesday.

Body weight was 159.9 this morning. I am dropping 1lb every 2-3 weeks. I am experimenting with higher protein foods to support a more aggressive nutritional sprint in the next few weeks. So far they are sitting well, but I need to reduce the other stressors in my life before I can go for it. More stress on my current lifestyle will just lead to burn out.
