Incline Tate Presses

Not that bad, felt alien squatting at first which is strange for me. Think its because I tried out OLY shoes friday night, but had to take them off today, I just cant stand squatting in them AT ALL!

Bodyweight today was 17 stone 8 / 245lbs

Things I learned, dont wear a ladies T shirt, can tell my back is going to take a beating and I need something grippier, dont wear OLY shoes, and lastly get ready for 3 weeks of hell.
