Going Down Fighting!


#841

Seems OHP is lagging behind your other lifts? Where’s the boulder shoulders?


#842

Yeah my OH Press has always been the one I’ve struggled with, after bench. I’ve tried numerous shit over the years and had periods where I’ve hammered the fuck outta them, but I just suck at em, haha.

#848

Does walking take anything at all away from your lifting?


#849

I don’t reckon, I’ve always walked alot, sometimes 6k’s a day with the dog. :dog2: plus a few at work. If anything it helps with recovery, it’s low impact and gets the blood flowing.

That’s a lot of walking to loosen up. To be fair I get stiff as sitting there studying/procrastinating. I’ve found recently a couple of mins with a soccer ball incredible. 10/10 warm up

Oh, haha, the walk was at 5:30 this morning, lifting was at 4pm this Arvo :+1:
I love a good walk, will go again with the :dog2: soon, about 7pm. Have walked a shitload today at work too, watch says 9k’s all up so far.

Nice workouts Luc.
Great PR on press.
The new BB stuff I’m about to try out looks very similar to yours.
I’ll just do something like 5x5 on the first lift.
I really like your back day, I might even borrow that one.


#858

Good press mate. Time for you to up the stakes and get it up to bodyweight


#859

Hmm I wasn’t too far off BW Press myself a bit ago but I wasn’t thinking of it at the time and couldn’t care less now. Dunno how much @I_Luc weighs but it’d be a great goal to shoot for


#860

@mortdk @simo74 @guineapig
Thanks fellas. BW is a long way off, I hover between 100-105kg I’m not too fussed about bench and OH Press, I’ve always sucked at them, a heavy squat and ripping a heavy dead from the floor is a way better feeling :+1:
