So, I've been contemplating entering Strongman competitions at the beginning of next year. I really need to work on my pressing so I'm gonna suck it up and do it. I hate upper body work, but I gotta start somewhere.
Power Press (behind the neck)
Bar x a few
285x0 missed twice
275 flew up fast, but 285 would not budge. My form probably just sucks.
4 board press (Close Grip)
Bar x some
Felt good today. Tris are definitely feeling it. I'm glad I found board presses because I actually feel like my tris are working, not just getting burn out.
Barbell Bent-Over Rows
Bar x a few
Lat Pulldown(towels for grip)
100x a few
Stone Trainer(42" Box)
Not too bad for my first time. It felt good and I used a belt for the last attempt. I can't wait to start smashing some weights with this thing.
For the love of all that is holy, stop wearing BodyBuilding.com t-shirts if you cannot produce proof of one of the following:
1) You weigh over 200lbs. If you are 6'2" and weigh 175lbs, there is something wrong with a BBer shirt.
2) Your bodyfat % is in the single digits.
3) You have competed in a bodybuilding show in the past. If you have had enough sack to compete, you deserve to wear whatever the hell you want.
I have absolutely no problem with bodybuilders. It takes life-long dedication and a ton of hard work to get contest ready. I feel it is absurd for these clowns to prance around like they are BBers. Its like the same 175lbs guy wearing a World's Strongest Man T-shirt...It is just not right.
