Lifting the same weight, around two days in every three, with the only other lifts being band work for rear and upper back, I’ve managed to get the floor press to 50KG (110lb) x sets 1, rep, 2 reps, 4 reps, 7 reps, 7 reps.
This is big news for the stooge, because it now means, at last, that my floor press is just about on parity with my single leg lift. That was always a big hope of mine. Ill be 47 years old this summer, and it would be just fine to be able to rag doll some 50s in the back yard while teaching the young fellas their broad jumps, push ups and pull ups.
PS: put on 5lb bodyweight while progressing this, but it’s worth it. Now at 202lb (92kg). Some of my pants don’t quite fit like they do at 90kg LOL, but I think there’s a few extra grams of muscle up there on my chest and shoulders too.
So, the next big plan is to bring those two lifts up to parity with the DB rows, at over 20 good reps, which should take a good long while. The Holy Trinity of stooge lifts will then be complete! Then I’ll need to cut body weight to just under 200lbs again.
