Thursday 2/5/09

For weight.

Shoulder Press 1 x 1 x 1 x 1 x 1

Push Press 3 x 3 x 3 x 3 x 3

Push Jerk 5 x 5 x 5 x 5 x 5

Check out the videos here and here for demonstrations and to see the differences between the three exercises.

Ideally, you will increase your weight on each of these to where your last rep on the previous weight is the starting rep on the next. This one should be fun.

Post weights to comments.

Good luck to those members of the Class of 2009 picking their posts tonight.

SP-95, 115, 125, 135, 145
PP-145, 155, 165, 175, 185
PJ-185, 190 failed after 2 finshed with 175, 175, 175, 160 worked on form.

Think I could have done more on SP and PP. The Push jerks were a lot harder than I remembered and 5 times with any weight is significant. Would be interested to see a 1 rep max at PJ.

As mentioned above, 5 reps at the end gets tough; the shoulders were smoked by the time I got to PJ. I'm sure PJ can really improve with better form and confidence.

PJ- Did not do, ran out of time had a haircut inspection.

These are the 5th set weights. I should have went a little heavier on both.

5x PJ at that point was tough.
Good strength day though.

Did workout twice. 1st time around did 45 on all three, then did it again with 55.

Need more weight, but had never done push jerk before, so worked on form and technique.

SP: 95,95,105,105,105
PP: 105,115,125,135,145
PJ: 145,155x4 - 145x1,135,135,135x2

I'm not sure what I was doing wrong, but my wrists were killing me by the end. I had to cut the workout short because my wrists were hurting more than I thought they should.

SP - 110
PP - 135
PJ - 125, I really need to work on form for these.

I forgot the other numbers but that's where I ended up.
