    John, is it better to go in 5# increments (should I have gone 165, 170,175,175,170?). We’ll keep working on the form. Thanks

      Thanks Joe,

      Nice work today.

      Anytime you’re going overhead, it’s better to keep the increases smaller than you would for, say, the squat or deadlift. Your shoulders are a lot smaller than your hips, so a little goes a long way. 175 might have felt better with 170 under your belt.

      John
