Grinding

9 November 2015

Floor press 255x4, 275x4, 285x4, 255 x 2s x 4

Did these with a barbell instead of the Smith machine. Took me a while to get used to the groove, but once I got the hang of it upping the weight was easy. Mad props to Coach for floor pressing 315+ back in the day, this shit is considerably harder than a regular BP.

Leg curls 3s x 8

SlingShot bench press 300 lbs. x 8, then 280 lbs. x 8 (again with Reactive SS - I will hold off on using the Original until the last 3 weeks of the program).

Pulldowns 30 total reps - alternated between supinated grip and regular wide pronated grip

Standing BTN press 135 lbs. 3s x 6

DB curl 30 total reps

DB kickbacks 3s x AMAP

Not 100% sure, but this might be the first kickback I've done in this millennium.

First lower body session after a layover always hurts.

Squat 375 lbs. 3s x 5

Pull 420 lbs. x 8 singles

Close-grip bench press 235 lbs. 2s x 5

Standing BTN press 115x4, 135x3, 160x3

Leg extensions 4 sets x AMAP

floor presses seem appealing to me for the simple reason that it looks cool on youtube. at what point do you think it will benefit the recreational/beginner lifter to do floor presses, if it will at all?

Not sure, let me stick with them for a while and report back on the results.

Floor press seems to me like a decent pressing variant for people with long arms (done instead of bench). Easier to set up than a board press.

ok, that's my cue (long arms). will keep this in mind, looking forward to your evaluation. :)
