    If you are on a good diet you will lose next to nothing in 8 weeks. In fact, in 8 weeks without any kind of weights you can become a better athlete by doing a lot of GPP or HIIT.

    I do mine as strict as possible, touching the top of my chest. I could probably add 50lbs by botching the form a bit. I'd rather do a Push Press for a max effort movement.
