Hat's off to you sir, I think I might just start upping my foam rolling/myofascia release game seeing that you foam roll twice a day

Thanks for the support guys.  Foam rolling is really almost as good as a massage.  Or better, since you can do it a lot more often!  I never do think about doing it until I have a problem.  I guess I should be more pro-active about it.

Big ol' OHP workout yesterday.  I'll start calling them Military Press since that's what I'm strictly doing according to the form videos on Youtube.

Wednesday Feb. 11 - Shoulders

Military Press:
warm up, 45 lb x 10 ... 2 sets
65 lb x 10
95 lb x 5
105 lb x 5
110 lb x 4
115 lb x 3
120 lb x 3
125 lb x 3
130 lb x 1
130 lb x 1
95 lb x 10

Dumbbell Lateral Raises:
15 x 12
17.5 x 10
20 x 8
22.5 x 7
25 x 5
25 x 5

Yesterday was Leg Press day.  The regular 45 degree sled-type leg press was occupied, so I went to the Hammer Strength Leg Press for the first time.  On this one you sit almost upright and start in the full "down" position, and press straight forward.  DAMN if it wasn't a lot harder than the regular leg press!  Maybe it was just the different position and angle of the press, but shit... it made me feel weak.

Thursday Feb. 13 - Legs

Hammer Strength Leg Press:
(plate weight)
180 lb x 15
180 lb x 15
270 lb x 10
270 lb x 5
360 lb x 5
360 lb x 5
360 lb x 5
270 lb x 10
After last week's 550x5 on the other leg press, this was humbling.

Seated Calf Raise:
(plate weight)
90 lb x 15
125 lb x 12
135 lb x 10
145 lb x 8

Lying Leg Curls:
90 x 10
90 x 5
90 x 5
90 x 5
PRs:
OHP 140 - 8/27/15
BP 245 - 4/7/17
DL 345 - 8/26/15
Squat - ugh
Leg Press 670x2 - 12/10/15

Sounds like it's due to the starting position. On the regular leg press yesterday I started down in the bottom position ( Hey, I have short legs ), and I had to use my hands to push up at the start of the heavier sets.

Solid session dude!  :thumbsup:

 I do agree that that starting position may be part of it, but also angle will play a factor. Hell, look at bench press! Decline it, incline it, flat... Your going to get different numbers.

 Short legs? don't you mean hobbit legs?  :P
