I want to give 5x5 a try, so I’m going over Joel Marion’s Ripped, Rugged, and Dense article. - I’m picking through his sample program and replacing any lifts that I don’t have the equipment to perform with do-able equivalents.
All that being said, I’ve got a few questions that hopefully someone can help me with:
What the hell is the “Seated Half Press in a Power Rack”??? - I’ve probably seen and/or done those before, but the name doesn’t seem even remotely familiar…
My gym/bedroom has a rather low ceiling, disallowing me to fully extend my arms overhead in a standing position (with weights in-hand), so what would be an appropriate replacement for the “Dumbell Clean and Press”?
For alternating one-arm d-bell shrugs, would ‘correct’ form to be to have the hands pronated (palms facing backward) or to have the palms facing inward?
In general, what are some custom-designed 5x5 variations people are using? - Any personal favorites out there?
