Cycle 14 – 3s Week: Overhead Press: 6/27/13

Only able to sleep for 5 hours.
Drove to the gym feeling decent (5/10).

Think the insufficient rest did a number on today’s session.
Managed to barely push through the main lift and struggled the rest.

Need to make sure try and get more sleep next time for better performance.
