Upper body push:
Incline bench overload
Up to 6s with 170kgs
Paused incline bench
DH style Skullcrusher
Went in pretty much straight from bed, kinda liked it. Training with the elderly group again due to the time.
The incline bench is a notch higher than it was last block, as you may notice. (Low incline vs incline). It’s a neat movement when done with a pause, but I still dislike the unracking part when u don’t have a spotter. It’s borderline dangerous how far backwards the bar is.
Started dips with just bodyweight. Despite, or maybe because my shoulder was feeling bad I actually managed to make the dips feel great. I’ve never really done dips consistently as they’ve always felt a bit off for me but I’ll start adding weight/reps slowly now.
Funny thing is, while doing reps with 110kgs on paused incline bench raised some eyebrows amongst the seniors, it was the bodyweight dips that made them tell me “how can somebody do such stuff”.
DH skullcrushers refer to the way Dusty Hanshaw does them; it’s kind of a hybrid between JM Press and skullcrushers. You can go to his instagram to see the exact thing, but it’s basically a JM Press done to forehead level.
Finished up with some lateral raises and stretches.
The training portion of this session took 26 minutes. 30 if you count the general warm up in. So not exactly a long workout, but luckily the effectiveness of a session is not counted in minutes.
