70s big July Challenge:
Max sets of 3 press/3 pulls in 20 minutes.
1 set is 3 reps of 0.625BW press followed by 3 chins or pullups.

Rounded weight up to 120#'s and only got 11 rounds in 13:30, I feel like I wussed out. During the 8,9, 10, 11 set of presses about midway through each press my right shoulder felt like it was popping. The 8th set I felt not too concerened by the 11th set I was a bit freaked and thought about all the times I've pushed through and ended up sidelining myself for weeks/months afterwards. There are still 19 more days in July, we will meet again!

Notes:
-5/3/1 week 2
-DL - 280 x 14, I felt out of breath!
-MP - 120 x 3 - only did the reps needed as I knew I'd be doing the challenge right after
