Push Press

Vim

Friday 3/28

Axle Continental & Press

  • 220 lbs x 10 singles

Lat Pull Down

  • Various weight x 20, 10, 5, 25

Not a bad session, though not super long. I’d like to get better at the continental as that’s currently my weak point putting an axle overhead.

Dumbo

Monday 3/10

Axle Clean & Press 75 kg 3 x 3 strict, 95 kg 3 x 3 push press

Z-Press 135 lbs x 8, 6, 6, 6

Pull Ups 4 x 6

Band Resisted Good Mornings 4 x 25

Some pressing. I power cleaned the axle up to an attempted continental at 105 kg that re-strained my lower back. Sometimes I can be a real dummy.

Blimp

Friday 3/7

Push Press 225 lbs x 3, 255 lbs x 1, 270 lbs x 1, 235 lbs x 4, 3, 2, 1

Log Rows 270 lbs 3 x 5

Pull Ups 3 x 6

Banded Good Mornings 4 x 25

270 lbs was a PR overhead. Maybe only by 5 lbs, but I’ll take it. Unfortunately I seem to have tweaked my lower back. Since I’m doing a squat only competition in the morning, this might wind up biting me in the ass. Oh well, just how it goes I suppose.

Wabba

Stone to 52″ 240 lbs x 5

Pretty solid pressing followed by the first time I’ve touched an atlas stone in about 20 months. Overall I’m pretty pleased with today’s training.

Simplex

Friday 2/7

Bench Press 235 lbs 3 x 3, 155 lbs 3 x 8 w/ feet up

Push Press 225 lbs x 3, 3, 4

Chest Supported Rows 115 lbs 4 x 8

Pull Ups x 6, 3

Pretty good session. Benching is feeling more solid, and it felt good to put some weight overhead as well. The only lousy-ness occurred at the very end when I was just bushed and couldn’t decently do pull ups. Oh well, so it goes.

Fun Times

Monday 1/20

Bench Press 225 lbs 3 x 3, 245 lbs x 1, 185 lbs x 10 CG

Chest Supported Rows 110 lbs 4 x 8

Lat Pull Downs 4 x 6

Axle Continental & Press worked up to a miss at 90 kg + axle

Benching today felt halfway decent, which was nice after the total squatting shit show of last session. I also got to lift with the other guy who trains for strongman, and played around with an axle for the first time. It was a lot of fun.
