Here's video from this week. I haven't come out with a video in awhile, I need to get one of my ME day, but I made sure to include something I've been experimenting with, using JM press as a speed accessory movement to help train my tri's to snap to lockout faster.
The speed bench set is 285lbs bar weight. We were just using a lot of different plates so we didn't have to completely reload the bar between sets
Lol thanks Vin. I have been doing a lot of cardio for the past two months which has really lowered my belly size but my weight refuses to go much lower than 260. Which is fine I had just planned on going down a weight class. I'm just going to keep doing what I have been doing and see what happens.
With the JMs you just need to be controled enough that you don't hyperextend your elbows
I was watching the video and I was thinking, those floor presses aren't going all the way to the floor! What's he doing? Something new? Then I just realized that your triceps were huge and that was as far down as they could go! hahah. I was just thinking I was pretty jacked from hitting 230lbs--hopefully this will light a new fire under me.
Great video. I'd love to see more posts like this. Short cut aways of a whole workout. It really helps to see what intensity and rhythm you do all the sets, not just the DE or ME ones. Gives me a better sense of how to approach my workouts--why not do it how the best guys with greatest results have done it?
Keep it up!
Yep. Usually 4 a day.
I've dropped my calories a bit as well.
My problem before wasn't so much being 270+ I guess, but as much as me being so far out of shape. My BP was through the roof and my endurance sucked.

What do you mean by hyper extending your elbow?
Trying not to die young.
Just hyper extending a knee can happen from a missed kick or poor running technique, with this movement, when you get the weight moving that quickly, you need to make sure you control it enough at the top.
If I was to just let the weight move with it's entire momentum up to the top, when it slammed against my elbows end of range of motion, I can pull the ligaments and tendons very hard causing an injury.
You just have to use caution is all I'm saying
great speed with 285 man thats serious
