Press Monday: A Better Showing

STRONGMANFINALI COULDN’T press during week 1 thanks to my bullshit right elbow, and since I’m supposed to be squatting fortnightly only, I decided tonight to do the pressing I should have done last Wednesday. And things held up just enough to complete all sets.

For variety, and coz I maxed out my incline pressing at 140 kilos for a triple, at the end of my last program, I swapped in some axle OHP afterwards, and here’s the thing… it seemed to fix my elbow. Or at least, not aggravate it further. The movement felt more comfortable. I will develop a better set and rep scheme and make it a regular thing, I reckon.

Before I left I had a chat to a couple of PTC members about log clean-press technique. PTC is developing a little Strong/wo/man community. It’s exciting to see.
