I looked back through the journal a bit and I didn't see anything that I would consider preperation for hitting 195 on the push press. I could be missing something but it seems like the lifts before were good. Likely you could have rested and maybe hit something in the 170 up range again but I'm not sure I get what your are sweating.
I responded in more detail already at GUS.
I haven't ever pressed 195 before. 185 was actually a PR today. Rest time was a...long 3 minutes between sets, so that wasn't an issue. It's even more of an issue when I'm OH pressing with the log.
I wonder if it has to do with the bar position in front of me. If I'm leaning forward a little when I go down to get my leg drive, that would definitely throw me off. I'll play with bar position the next time I go to the gym just to see what the deal is.
I just responded to your response on GUS. Thanks for the long response. This response got me thinking a lot about things also. The log press thing kind of hints at a problem with bar position. OH squats could help me a lot with that. My hip awareness is getting better, but I don't feel like I have the best "bar awareness".
