Last exercise of my morning workout, OHP. I have neglected overhead press for a bit so wasn’t sure how many reps I could do. I do remember 135x5 was most I could do. Happy I could do bit more and reach 8 reps. I had done dips, pull-ups and rows before doing OHP so who knows maybe if I started with OHP I could have done 10 reps at 135lb. #overheadpress#workout#fitness#weightlifting#fitness#workinghard#motivated#focused
Change of Technique Maybe? 🤔
120kg in both videos. (Swipe right)
Difference between the two. First video. Wearing Olympic shoes, resting the bar on my shoulders and hands moved out about an inch. Second video. Not resting the bar and no shoes.
In both videos I am fatigued but today I am sore from alot of incline yesterday, so I'd say today was a higher fatigue (first video)
Not sure if I am gonna make the switch to this style, it's more of an Olympic weightlifting style compared to the usual 'strongman' way of pressing. Both videos I used about the same leg drive but that also needs to be improved.
Thoughts and opinions welcomed. Personally I think the first video the weight moved easier.
185x4 deads followed by an ohp rep pr 55x7.
trying something totally new. not even what i posted a few days ago. hoping i can really squeeze out some more strength gains by only training every other day and taking a more minimalist style. i would always feel guilty for not lifting 5-6 times per week, which definitely isn't healthy.
it feels weird having created my own program, but it should be a good experiment. hoping to mostly maintain my weight during the process.
i trained each main muscle group in some way today, and it feels kind of good. the only annoying part is having to warm up several times during the session.
Practicing static events today, did some continental clean and press.. this was my top set at 335.. locked it out and immediately lost it.. probably didn't make the down command, but still making progress.. backed the weight down and did lots of singles and worked on perfecting my technique #gainz#strongman#overheadpress#unrealfitness
BreathIn.jpg - Deadlifts on a sunday afternoon.. despite dedicating most of my workouts to a stronger bench I would never neglect squats or deadlifts.. I even went for a new PR (260 Kg is my current one...) What do you think? Did I get it? (See story for some sets..). Yours,
Been pushing this overhead press for weeks!!! Trying too touch 90kg and today after many failed attempts it happened! So now I'm going to work up too 100! Got to set new goals!!! #fcpc#overheadpress#strongmantraining#goals
Working on overhead stability with @crguthrie8
Overhead carries work on keeping your shoulders active and in a retracted and downward position, otherwise you will lose the weight forward or to the side. Once again, time under tension is the key to building strength and postural stamina. #inthebox#intheboxpt
"Overhead press". Este es un ejercicio básico para deltoides. Sí estás empezando a levantar pesas inicia con mancuernas y progresa poco a poco hasta levantar la barra. Si tienes más experiencia, esta opción de un solo lado con mancuernas es excelente como calentamiento.
High Volume/Hypertrophy Upper Body Workout.
Sticking the basics is key. Aside from strength gains and assisting all your big lifts, these are some of the other benefits of gaining/retaining muscle as you get older:
“As we age we lose the hormonal support necessary to continue building muscle as we did in our older days. If we’re not steadily working to build muscle the aging process will steadily take it away. The muscular weakness and atrophy associated with aging leaves us susceptible, to disability, accidental falls, cardiovascular disease and diabetes. With this in mind, you should train for hypertrophy with the goal of taking every shred of muscle with you into your later years.”
-Seated DB Military Press (3x8)
-Floor Press (2x6-max)
-Single Arm DB Lateral Raises (5mins x 5 each arm)
-Neutral Grip Weighted Pull-ups (3x5-6-max) 3sec hold on at top of every rep*
-Mini Band Pull-apart (10x10) use red @perform_better mini band*
-Hanging Leg Raises (4x10)

Oh, hey, a Satday liftday
Also, some slight callous rips from deadlift
Squat: 287.5 lbs
Patience and the right set up will make your lift and save your life. Can't believe I'd forgotten the sweet spot to place the bar on my back.
That plus 3 x 3 got me raring to go for the rest of this climb past 315 lbs
Overhead Press: 129.5 lbs
OHP felt nice and steady.
Need to order some more microplates so I can actually increase at 2 lbs per session when I need to. My current 2.5 lb increase hasn't got the best of me yet, but nothing lasts forever.
Deadlift: 350 lbs
I'ma have to pace out my warmup on deadlift so I can recover a little more on that climb up. One I got to 315 (5 @ 135, 5 @ 185, 5 @ 225, 3 @ 265, 3 @ 315, 1 @ 335) my back was a lil fatigued…
BUT after a nice long swig of vitamin water and 10 min rest, I got up and channelled my inner @strongpowergirl for some karaoke and kaioken to make the lift.

While we are on the topic of anti-rotational exercises that help with objective functional movement patterns (overhead pressing, forward pressing, overheadaquat, etc.) we introduce to you the Z-Press.
When you are sat down on the floor and overhead pressing, your lower body is taken out of the mix so your upper body can perform its task you are trying to improve. In other words, you have no glutes to help support upper body function.These are great for those who rotate to one side while overhead pressing or for those who loose midline stability (arching of your back). Start light and with a tempo THEN build up in weight.
Though 135# for 4 is a breeze while standing, it is super tough as you can see when sitting down! #crossfit#strength#overheadpress#strongman#knightfitness#personaltrainer#fitness#thinkdifferent#movebetter#fit @barbellsforboobs @onelifefit #sportandhealth#skonelife
Clips from Thursday's push session. (Focused on shoulders)
For shoulders, I did front overhead press, over the back overhead press, over-the-back push press and overhead squat.
First time trying overhead squat, definitely harder than I expected. I recommend this to anyone who wants to work on their core and overall stability, I believe this will transfer to back squats and conventional deadlift a lot.
It's also my first time doing over-the-back push press (I've done front push press before, I felt that I really worked my rear and side delts and traps, overall a very good alternative exercise to strict (front) ohp.
I also did some flat bench, tricep kickbacks and EZ bar skullcrusher for triceps.
