Me and my friend are having a competition this sunday.
We both lift a weight over our heads, and the first person that gives up and drops the weight loses.
My questions are these:
What is the best way to lift it? Arms straight and elbows locked throughout the whole time? or something else?
Is an activity like this putting too much burden on my spinal cord? or is it in the range of okay?
and any other tips or comments or whatever is welcome (:
thanks in advance
sooooooooooooo........ u just have to hold the weight over ur head, like thats it?
"knees bent, elbows locked. now, its all in the hips, (swaying motion) its all in the hips" - just some advice from chubbs
happy gilmore is such a great movie.
but seriously, how much weight is it?

Just looking to build muscle, not too worried about being cut
Lespaul - wear a weightlifting belt if you have one. Use your legs to press the weight overhead. If you are done when you drop the weight then I would press at a slow pace and take a breath between each one...
Why not just have a standard pushup contest? Most reps in a row wins, you can rest in the up position.
our competition involves a tremendous amount of mental indurance.. and not just strength... which is why we like it
I'll be the first to say: WTF? Really?
You have dozens of lifts/exercises you can choose from for your "competition" and your choice is a static hold above your head?
Try this competition: Most OH reps at body weight.
