Tonight I went to the gym with the intention of getting a couple PR's on upper body work. I thought I should re-test my OHP max. I have hit 305 before, but when I put 315 on the bar it seemed impossible. Tonight I put 275 up with no leg drive and 295 with minimal leg drive. I put 315 on the bar and unracked it. It felt so light it made me laugh that I ever missed it before. As I exploded up, my right knee popped! I almost had it all the way locked out but could not straighten my knee in fear that something would snap. I was forced to limp out of the gym so that I could get home and ice my knees ASAP.

That was seriously disappointing. I think 325 may have been possible. I even wrapped my knees for fuccks sake! Angry

Lift, what stance do you use for you overhead presses, one foot forward one back, or wide foot stance.  I have tryed both, sem to be more comfortable using one forward one back like olympic lifters.

I dont double dip like oly lifters. Not because I dont want to but because I could seriously mess my knees up like that. Feet about shoulder width, maybe slightly more. I should try to go wider to get more power but its just how I am comfortable for now. Small dip, flare the lats, grip the bar as hard as I can, explode up, and push to lockout. Nothin special but I will be working on it.

If you can do it, use the oly stance. It will definitely get you farther than my clunky form. Grin

Thanks for the reply Lift.  I deffinately prefer the Oly stance.  I don't see much overhead or millitary pressing in my gym, and normally have quite a gallery watching when I'm doing it.

Shitty  Cry 

Did some really high rack pulls last week, worked up to 405x10 with no pain. Also front squats at 225x5 with no pain. Sadly, I was paying for it the next day so I may have pushed a little to hard. No way I will make the comp. It will come back though, just going to take longer than I wanted...

What's up with your knee?

At least you realize you need rest, most dont. Nice lifts nevertheless!

My knees are garbage, haha. My right knee has been giving me problems as of late. I dont know why, its usually the left one! I have been icing it and taking my joint formula and it feels okay again. I just need to remember to warm up thoroughly before anything involving the knees even the slightest bit.

Time for some lower body work tonight so it better be ready.

Id call that a "jerk" as opposed to an over head press, but its still damn strong!

I turned 21 in march and missed 405 by around 40lbs so I got alot of work left to do this summer to catch up to my goal.  Hopefully all this pressing pays off when It comes to my strongman in july, Log got the best of me at my last competition so Im ready to redeem myself

It is not a press.

It is a jerk.

Very impressive of course.

But the carry-over from jerks to shoulder strength isn't always 100%.

I was told about a fairly small bloke who were able to clean and jerk an outstanding 365 lbs.

But was so ashamed of his standing shoulder press, that he would stand in a corner doing them - training with 135 lbs on the bar. Don't know how true that story is, but it tells you something.

But as JP mentioned, great lift. And you should do well in the Apollons axle and the log lift come summertime.

You can find her pictures online if you are really bored at work and you look hard enough.  She still looks pretty much like a woman, just a very muscular one.

Kettlebell Toss 1x20x48kg <<<Trying to simulate a keg as best I can. The KB is 50lbs heavier than the keg and it was hitting 8-10 feet high. The keg will be to 13' and only 55lbs.

Cobble Stone Load 1x4x280 No tacky


Hedge, I have seen some training vids before where (Chinese?) guys do strict presses with what looked like 120lbs or so and then jerk 300+lbs like its nothing. The technique is everything. I can get 305 standing but only 265-275 seated.

I havent been in the gym for a while because I was doing recovery work for my comp. Unfortunately it did not happen due to a tornado having ripped the town in half a couple days prior. The whole festival the town has every year was called off. One person died and something like 13 were injured. I tried to contact the promoter but got no reply. I hope he and everyone else are doing okay now!

Have you heard anything, Monopoly?

First full effort day in a couple weeks went pretty well:

RAWWWWW Squats 3x5x455 <<<Havent been here in a while! It felt great!
Leg Curl Machine (used as single leg curl) 2x8xfull stack (200lbs I think)

I needed a day like this after not getting to compete. Next comp in a month though, I'll be more than ready.

Hey bud,

Such a shitty situation. They actually did have the contest. I thought it was off, and then someone got ahold of me late on Saturday morning asking if they could use one of our stones!

Ended up going down in Loveland at some guys place. Was a decent turnout actually. I didn't hear your name so I wondered if you heard anything. I guess Willie posted something over on the Anvil Friday? I didn't see it.

Keep training hard, I think my back may be ready for the next one  Cool

BTW, Pat and his family/home are okay, guess it just missed them.

Yeah, I just heard from Pat (just now!) and another guy who saw that on the Anvil. Im just about as pissed as I could ever be! I would have shown up in Windsor if my gf didnt realize that the news said the tornado was in Windsor. I checked the site and emailed Pat (he had no power I guess) and couldnt find anything about it other than the huge red lettering that said "PELICAN FEST HAS BEEN CANCELLED DUE TO EXTREME WEATHER ISSUES!"

The next one is only a silver, I may have to travel to another state to compete.

Good luck with the back! See you in comp soon Im sure.
