I disagree (at least with 'astronomical'). Normally if I can do an easy 165 push press I know I can do at least 10# more 99% of the time. This was the 1%. Add to that the fact that I did 180 2 weeks before and 6 singles at 190 1 month before and I felt real sure it was doable. This wasn't even supposed to be a max, just a heavy single. Sickness, missing work outs and losing weight took more out of me then I realized.
Front squat: 95x5; 135x3; 155x1; 165x1 175x1; 185x1
Push press: 95x5; 135x3; 145x2; 155x2; 160x2; 165x2
Bent over barbell row: 115x5; 135x3; 145x3; 155x3; 165x3
Press w/bands: 2 @ 45x8. I use doubled mini bands for these. Barely any tension at the bottom. Hard as hell at the top.
Weighted incline sit ups: 50# 8,6
