Speed Military Press
28/3 x 10 L
28/3 x 10 R
Pull-up with pause at top
These were by far my strongest pull-ups in a while. Very pleased. Dead hang start each rep with a 2 sec pause at top full lat contraction
These only got better. The video is my first set with the beast so my right was sloppy but I adjusted. First time doing power cleans and first with beast. An adaptation from Rifs power swing. Way harder doing power stuff.
Speed squat close stance
Double 24kg for triples, 10 sec work, 20 rest. Must pause in hole
I wanted to add in a speed day to help with my pistol. Ideally this should be done with a pistol, however I adapted today and choose the close stance squat. This puts my body in pistol position. I was pretty worked as I did this with a time interval. Essentially, 12-15 secs work with about 15-18 sec rest.
Part of the plan for developing the press is to incorporate specific work on key muscles invovled in the Press. In particular the focus is on the weaker muscles first. Now, since I have a goal related to the pull-up as well, I choose to do this first and do my tricep work after. I would assume my triceps are the weak link since I have done little to no specific work on them.
Another accessory lift for the press. I placed the bells on my forearms which certainly makes this move more interesting and difficult.
This was a great day, I moved strong, fast and powerful today!
