Bodyweight - home scale said 242, gym scale said 247. I'll just say 245.
Clean and press - bar x 30, 95 x 10, 135 x 5, 155 x 4, 185 x 3, 225 x 2, 245 x 1
Seated Db Press - 100's x 16, 8
Reverse Grip Bench - 135 x 10, 225 x 5, 275 x 5, 315 x 5
Close Grips - 225 x 15
Notes - Decent session. I still hate standing press even though I know I'm made for it and could hit 315 in a few months at 240-250 if I just worked at it, but I just f'n hate em. The 245 was easy and I haven't done this exercise in quite a while. Oh well, I don't see it lasting. LOL.
Funny you hate the press so much while being so good at it. Any particular reason why you hate it?ReplyDelete
Overhead lifting is cool. Standing under a heavy weight is more awesome than lying down and pushing, even if it's a heavier weight.
I think pressing shit overhead is mega cool but it bothers my elbows now quite a bit and my permanently separated shoulder doesn't always agree with it.ReplyDelete
Funny enough I'm fine with press behind the neck.
ah, pain is a good reason to avoid it. Yes, like PBN too.ReplyDelete
My overhead is weak as hell, but most of my training past was OL centric so jerks and push-presses were my focus, with their greater carry over.
300 overhead, most likely as a jerk, ideally cleaned first, remains my biggest long term goal.
Before the elbow got bad I'm positive I was good for 300 strict standing as I did 275x3 without much effort. But that was a while ago.ReplyDelete
clean and presses are bad ass!!! I changed up the pace the other day and alternated hang clean and presses with weighted chin up's! felt swole afterwards! ended with rest paused weighted dips and I was done!ReplyDelete
