Trained with my buddy Nick Winters did some incline work and after those.I did these static presses.I was tired from the incline so when i got to these i was about spent, meant to get more then 1 but i just stopped there.Will post a video in the next few weeks with more weight.
P.S. The weight is 455lbs incase any one is wondering.

ouch! my shoulders!
great work though, pin presses from that level are very difficult. takes some real brute strength.

strong press but im still not a fan of the elbow wrap
Seriously impressive lift. BTW, what does a static lift do to your overall bench? What is the benefit, I guess is what I'm asking...

i've seen some guys do speed work off low pins - i'll have to give that a try sometime.

regarding these static pin presses due to my crazy schedule and not being able to find a spot
I end up doing that static pin press very close to my chest also and at a weight of about 168 lbs I have doubled 315 and a single with 330 again right at my chest is where I press from.
Can any estimate what your raw bench press should be and how it may relate to the weight used in a static pin press that is right at your chest.
thanks very much.
