Bodyweight - 248
So Jamie and I had a challenge this week.
Max single on the klokov press, and then 185 for max reps. On the rep set, all reps had to be paused before attempting another one.
Here is how shit turned out for me........
Klokov Press - 230
Klokov Press - 185x9
After this I was pretty spent, but still managed..........
T-bar Rows - 2 plates x 20, 3 plates x 20, 4 plates x 20, 5 plates x 10, 6 plates x 10, 7 plates x 8
Dips - Body x 40
Notes - Good session but energy was low from lack of food. That's ok. That's what I'm doing.
And guess what arrived at my house today fuckers..................will have the store set up for them by this evening.......
If I remember correctly, don't you do military and bench thumbless? I've been test-driving the Klokovs since you introduced them on the blog a while back, and I automatically do them thumbless like the rest of my pressing. Is there a reason you use a closed grip on the wide BTNs?
Just seemed natural but I thought about going thumbless tonight. Will try it next time to see how it feels.Delete
Haha, did your VMOs cramp on this one too? I've been using your 10,8,6,5,5,5 scheme for the Clean (once) & Press and those workouts are one of the few times I've come close to vomiting during in the gym.ReplyDelete
Yeah they did. It' really strange.Delete
On the T-bars are you locking your fingers together or are you using a hand over hand grip ? Just asking cause I've only seem people do it with a close-grip chin bar.ReplyDelete
Also what is that red thing on your power rack ? Been reading the blog and seeing your vids for quite a long time and aways wondered what was that.
I use a v-handle.Delete
Holy fuck those klokov presses were awesome.ReplyDelete
It's tough to estimate from that infamous training video of his but it looks like Klokov himself can probably do around 275 or so, maybe a bit more... any plans to work up to that?
Yeah that's the goal.Delete
Why do you always look to the right after unracking?ReplyDelete
I press in between rafters. So I have to stick the plates between em or they hit.Delete
How much Jamie can lift on those Klokov presses?ReplyDelete
Supposed to find out tonight.Delete
That was impressive Paul. Especially the 185x9 when you looked done after 4-5 but that's determination for you!ReplyDelete
After the 6th one it looked like you didn't have much left in the tank but you banged out another 3. Impressive lifting! Interested to see how Jamie got on.ReplyDelete
On rep #7 you had what I call the "last rep face". It's awesome you were able to grind out two more after that.ReplyDelete
