Lifting heavy (for me)

I planned on lifting today instead of doing a WOD and ended up doing a little more heavy weights than I planned.

Jason had us find our 3 rep max on the push press and one rep max on the push jerk. 
My 3 rep max on the push press was 85 lbs and my push jerk 1 rep was 95 lbs.  he tried to get me to do 105 lbs but my arms weren't having any of it. 

Then I worked on my back squats:
85 lbs 5 reps
100 lbs 3 reps
110 lbs 7 reps!!!!
Back squats felt great today and I can see myself getting to body weight in a few more months! 
I then went back to straight presses:
60 lbs 5 reps
70 lbs 3 reps
80 lb zero reps! I just could not get the bar up above my nose, my arms were sore from all the push-ups the day before and maybe already worn out from the push presses and push jerks.  I will try again on Thursday or Friday.

I figured out how to make salads more tasty : add filet mignon.
