Nice push presses. So you were doing them from the back of the neck?

I want to be like the guy you chatted with. Hope I don’t see him in my age bracket.


#22

Maschy- yes a big busy day with little man today

O_b_s I do like the push press- but they are taxing

thanks OP- I was doing them from the front
from the ‘clean’ rack position

the tip I got was from an article here by Glen Pendlay
and he gave it as a tip on the push press- to kind of shrug the shoulders up a bit higher

the part about the PP is on page two- he can explain it better then I can

as for PL dude at the gym I am guessing he is some where around 35-40
maybe younger ? hard to tell

He said been competing for a few years he had a USPL shirt on from 2007

he had just competed 2 or 3 weeks ago
did ok- bench 365? pull something like 638 squat 572?
this is all from our little conversation I know what the pull was- but not sure if these where attempts or made lifts

this was Raw

tomorrow’s job went away, yay?

so I will train and get a head start on 7 fishes by putting some Bacala up to soak
we are not doing a full on Seven fishes - maybe 4 or 5

think I am front squatting tommorrow


#23

My cutie magnet is on delay…

seven fishes, are you talking xmas eve? We do the fish, seafood bash, so much food its crazy.

I liked watching your snatch pulls, you definitely have that dialed in!

FS tomorrow, fun fun


#24

new log!!! great timing for the new year too.

little man is officially bethrothed to cookie-face :wink:

solid pulling and I like the fresh hair.


#25

Up- yes christmas eve
last year I made bacala and a HUGE paella

this year bacala
seafood salad
and pasta vongoli

I wanted to make Paella again but we just made one like two weeks ago

Frenchi- thank you

mobilty lots and lots

face pulls tricep crap OH squat 3 roudns x10

OH squat 95 2x8

A front squat

135x8, 185x6,225x5,245x3,265x3 275 3x2, 225 3x5

B Air hump 225x10,275x6,315x6

Notes- no abs- no conditioning ran out of time
squats felt ok- not the best rack- feeling
fatigued from push presses

wanted more doubles and more sets of 5
need to just get some solid reps in the next few weeks
RDl- needs work might take a break from pulling of the floor
for a few weeks and just do tons of RDL

will catch up later with all you peeps

thanks for looking


#26

the menu sounds divine!

#34

yo people.

I am back- holiday is 2/3 over

last year I cried about the holidays
this year I am still mostly a Grinch
despite the feast on fishes.

Is it wrong to tell the aunt who picked a fight with a daughter ( at my house)
to play nice
or leave.

or to tell the people who try to give your kid a drum set - that they can set it up in their living room
and he can visit.

ahhh. holidays.

we see my fam on Jan 1 then its over.

training

sumo RDL killed the hams and glutes

thats it.

You do wonder if people are thinking.

I once gave my niece’s daughter a jump rope. I told her I didn’t want to give a present which came in a thousand pieces or made noise. She said “THANK YOU!!!”


#37

Matty- short people families are always silly

Cav- jump ropes are kind of noisy… just saying

training 12.30.11

#38

How’s the neck coping with the back squats?


#39

FB-

Its ok thanks

I used a low bar set up that seems to work
I didnt venture into anything too heavy.

5 reps at a modest load might work if I cycle back squats maybe 1 or 2x a month


#40

Happy almost new year Kevin. 3x5@135 Z press is impressive! Good stuff.
