my shoulders, and that my core and stabilizers are pretty solid.
Oh well, we'll see how I progress through the weeks.
I love seated press, surprised you could move less weight. I understand if your abs are really strong there'd be no difference, but not less.
The only thing that has increased my press is pressing more often. Do it twice a week normally. Also as Langargian said getting your lats ready helps loads.
Lolzy day at the gym today, went to american military base gym with my dad. Dad was doing incline bench with 115lb (does he even lift?) haven't done a barbell pressing motion this year, tried it, unracked the bar and just dropped it right away, fell on my stomach, feels badman. I also tried to do kipping pull ups for the lolz, they felt really weird so I just did 105 normal ones. Did a couple with a 25lb as well. How do people use those shitty weight belts which are made of a piece of chain and some leather. Belt falls off right away, inzer belt + chain through it is so much better.
Not really gym related but I bought final fantasy 4 today, was buying new headphones saw it and I hnnnnged. Haven't bought a video game since twilight princess I think, fuuuark so excited, love final fantasy games. Brb not lifting for a week.
TK, when I do seated overhead press I force my upper back into the seat and arch my lower back, basically bench press form, but overhead.Edited by fuji - 6/23/12 at 9:27am
