I challenge everyone to go out and floor press between now and next Friday. Let's see what you all have. Video is needed. Whenever I know I am going to video a lift, I get a little anxious. I have been training like a b!tch because of my leg for the past two weeks. I need to get out and push myself. I thought a friendly competition could push us all.

I'd do it, but my max floor press is like your 1st warmup set, lol

The challenge is to put up the best press you can. To compete against yourself, not the other members.

For what earthly reason would someone do more than one rep? You kids today.

Are we going by weight class ?

To compete against yourself? Sure. That means you can win by weight class AND overall!

Im totally going to wear a bench shirt. Then I would have a very small hope of using the same weight as Vinny hahaha.

I have never done floor press's. Is it harder or easier than regular flat benching? Im a raw lifter w/ a max of 400lbs at 220lbs, would I be able to press more or less in this exercise?

Ill try to remember to do these on monday when I do chest and video it but I have no idea if it will be much weight. lol

You have no leg drive with floors, so normally your max is lower than your normal 1rm

Here's mine. I always do them with my knees bent. However, I do not use them to press. As you will see on my 565 fail, I push them out instead of into the ground. I am really pissed about missing the 565. I looked back through my log and my best was 555. I was around 20 lbs heavier then. I am also pissed beacuse Tee Tee could not make it to the gym. We had been sh!t talking via text all week. I was looking forward to the friendly competition.

I want to take this again in about a month and go straight from 495 to 565 or 575. I feel stronger than ever, I need to prove it. I'll need to string together a perfect month of training, nutrition/supplementation, resting, and recuperating to achieve this goal. I'm putting up a calendar and I will get it. I need to get my nagging pec injury and thigh problem resolved by then also.

I think it will be no problem nailing that in a month or so Vin. 550 was pretty fast. Great lift

Damn solid work Vin. Still hope the pec and thigh issue's get cleared away soon. Are you at least seeing progress with them?

You know the rule..... anything over 3 reps is considered bodybuilding which requires you to shave...... everything....


no deal

Do it whenever you want buddy. Just make sure you set the bar high. I'm planning on hitting it again in about a month. Give me something good to shoot for. I look forward to seeing what your strong ass hits.

Glad I didnt make that fourht rep. Is that considered cardio as well?

I worked this into my chest workout today and did 275x10 pretty good. I didnt attempt a max because the squat rack at my gym didnt have pin slots low enough for me to do a full rep (all the way down), so i was doing them off the edge of the squat rack. The other squat rack went low enough but this guy was using it forever and I wasnt waiting for his old ass.

I think I could probably get 375ish?

Gym lifts don't count for much my friend, but thanks for the nod. We'll hit the platform together one day and that will be fun.
