@TX_iron: Thanks man, it has been pretty motivating to see the bench press moving along. It was a long stall, I think using the conjugate method and starting to introduce bands helped address some of my weaknesses.
The log presses were rough. Trying to power curl that weight up onto my chest from inside the rack was interesting to say the least.
As far as the throws go, I haven’t been following the plan perfectly for them as I don’t own a medicine ball. So I’ve been using my 30 and 50lb sandbags as a replacement. And I haven’t been 'throwing them" as much as “explosively pushing them while still holding onto the handles”…if you can picture that.
I’m sure it looks all sorts of awkward, but doing my best to imitate the movement with what I have. And it is quite sub-maximal weight, so it more or less just gets my blood flowing, I don’t feel like my performance or explosiveness decreases much.
Box jumps, on the other hand. On my third set of these, I’m usually losing explosiveness and expecting my toes to catch and for me to eat shi* on the box…but touch wood, it hasn’t happened yet.
Thanks for stopping in!
