just for clarity, are you doing the dumbell press seated or standing?
I do it standing. Seated it is not comparable with MP.
If I understand this correctly, you’re asking if you’ll get stronger by training your weak point? Or if you’ll get stronger by continuing to do something that you’re already better at?
Do I have that correct?[/quote]
yeah dude, you are right.
This would lead me to believe that you have a bad bar path on your barbell pressing. Otherwise this shouldn’t really be the case. [/quote]
That does sound like a likely cause. Jim said to do the Press with a barbell, so I would recommend that you continue doing it with a barbell. So you’re weak with a barbell, keep doing it and you’ll get stronger. Everybody’s weakest lift of the four is the OHP, just build it up. Do some FSL and do the reps paused, that should help as well. Check your form, work hard, eat, FSL paused reps. [/quote]
My form should be good. I learned it from a former powerlifter and it is the same as Jim descripes in his book. But I think you guys are right. I should stay on the MP and try to improve and progress.
