Week 8 Press and Stuff

May 8, 2013
Noon

Last barbell workout prior to this weekends strength seminar with Phil Stevens. Looking forward to some immediate critique, corrections and suggestions. Pretty easy to insulate yourself when you only train in your basement lol.

Great armwrestling session on Monday! Wow I'm still feeling it a bit.

1) Bench Press - Fingers about 1-1.5" off if the smooth
275 x 2 x 3r - can come off of the lats a lot better

Added the original red slingshot. Long pause at the bottom of each rep.
275 x 3 x 6r

2) Pull-ups - Minimal rest, just shake out the arms. From the last set of 4 on I just worked AW range and paused on the bottoms.
BW(260) x 1, 2, 3, 4, 4, 4, 3, 2, 1, 1+long hold

Blob45 assists and holds x 6
Got up to a solid 3 count with the right.

I'm also thinking that the Ivanko chalk is better in my conditions over the Metolius Super Chalk. We'll see when it starts to get humid out though.
