#overheadpress @30kg with just a little push , getting some overhead strength back, keep that core tight and legs engaged also to stay stable throughout the entire body, a slight pause overhead until stable 💪🏻 ideally keep your feet planted naturally and flat, so your hips are straight on, unlike my gimpy feet that keep me in staggered stance and offset hips 😂💪🏻
@pinup_lifter and @bennychessumtattoos hitting some big log numbers on reps and weight tonight. Dakota going HAM to hot a total of 9 sets @40kg, while Benny built up to a failed 120kg attempt, before backing off to a rep PB of 2@115kg.
A quick reminder that our open novice class is on again tomorrow (and every Wednesday) night at 6:45pm at @the_mass_performance_centre . If you've ever wanted to give Strongman a go, come and join in! Weights and events are adjusted to cater to any level of strength and experience.
Bouldaaaa shouldas 💪🏼 try this superset:
🔥15 upright rows
🔥15 overhead presses
Today’s workout consisted of this 👆🏼 plus a lot of variations of lateral raises, front raises, and flys and my shoulders were toast #corebylizvideos
Thanks @vivsgym for making me laugh so I don’t have RBF 😉
3x8 at 135lbs ohp, and trying new things with my squat. Backs def still iffy which makes these hard but new technique changes feel so much better on my knees and ankles. Can't wait for the back to heal these feel so much stronger and powerful.
Wearing a sweatshirt allows me to not bang up my collarbones when pressing but it was really hot in the gym so I sweated my butt off. 😲 Apparently a sweatshirt causes you to sweat. 😛 I am now setting my hips back before the dip which allows the bar to have a better path. The dip feels more natural now and the push presses feel a bit easier. Last week I struggled with 10 pounds less than this so the adjustment seems to work. #press#overheadpress#overheadstrength#pushpress#olympiclifting#oly#progressnotperfection#smalladjustments
OHP 70 lbs x 6. Took it down by 5 lbs for this cycle. Decided I don’t need a deload week going forward (I guess I’ll have to work those deload week selfies in another way) since I usually skip at least one workout each lift each cycle anyways and I seemed to be losing ground during my deload weeks. Ran 5 miles (about 11.3 min mile, learning to pick up steam at the end and shave down my times without burning out). Every week it’s the most I’ve ever run and yet it feels so normal. Still had energy after this and did 5x5 of partial pull ups. 🔥
En ce moment j’apprends à dispatcher les séances sur toute la journée. C’est compliqué au départ mais ça se fait plutôt bien 👉🏼 dédicace à la méthodo des haltero bulgare sans le vouloir (bon on est encore loin des 8 séances par jour hein 😅) 20’ entre midi pour prendre de l’avance sur la semaine 👉🏼 Petit quickie à base de militaire à genoux en progressif sur 5’ (j’en ai profité pour le prendre en vidéo la série d’échauffement pour les suivi à distance) puis RNT sur la fixation du dos en soulevé de terre / fentes / fentes « jav » pour mettre en place quelques une des dernières réflexions.
Just a little bit of proof that @the_guvnor_strongman and I have been training the last week or so, it’s just not been exciting so no videos. We both hit Evolution Gym yesterday for some strongman specific work and to see where James needs to work and make adjustments.
Tonight was heavy squats and a little bit of light pressing, nothing fancy just getting the work in.
He’s got 7 weeks to knuckle down and there’s going to be conditioning work, LOTS AND LOTS of conditioning work 😈
Let me tell you a little about myself.
My goal isn’t to pack on the pounds and gain huge muscle mass like a body builder. I cannot sustain that body for life because the truth is that the minute you stop lifting weights the big mucles turn to fat. I’m also 35 and my metabolism has slowed down.
My GOAL is to lose the excess fat and get SHREDDED so that my muscles are DEFINED and LEAN while eating the foods I enjoy. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Follow my page to see how I achieved this look! I will be posting my exercise routines and the types of foods that I eat.
