Overhead Press. Week 2 Cycle 2

I realize I'm like Oprah: always on the cover.
Nothing terribly exciting today. Last cycle in week 2 I did 170x5. Today I wanted 175x5 and got it. I would have had six, I think, had I not fallen forward on my toes for my first attempt at the 5th rep. Also, I do know I am cheating somewhat by bouncing the bar off my chest, but since im improving, I'm not really sweatin' it. After my final working set I did the same weight (175lbs) for 4 sets of 2 reps, each paused at the bottom to work that explosiveness. I then continued with 5 sets of 5 reps at 135lbs, again, all of them paused at the bottom. It's cool to think that when I started 5/3/1, I did 175lbs for 8 reps on the jerk, and I'm now approaching that on the strict press. Sweet.

Goals for today:
