Skullcrushers are a bit different. Those have no pullover aspect. It's the lowering of the weight down to the floor, rather than just down to your forehead that makes them different. I'll try to find a video...

Isn't the difference that skullcrushers involve elbow extension but no shoulder movement, whereas pullovers involve shoulder extension but no elbow movement (you can start with bent arms or locked out arms as long as you maintain the position throughout)?

Do you use straps on the shrugs? If not that's some awesome grip strength!

Unfortunately, chewy, yeah, I did.

My grip strength is going to be the sticky spot in our deadlift race. It's bad. I'm working i'm it, though.

How long did it take you to do all those push presses? That's 15 sets! I never have that kind of time on my hands.

Maybe. Thanks. Not feeling quite immortal yet. I'll get there. Long ways off a 650lb deadlift. Gym change coming soon. Joining the bodybuilder/strongman/powerlifter gym. That should help. :)

Besides, you're no slouch yourself. Keep it up! And stay healthy!

Just fyi. I'm done with heavy back squats. I hate them and they piss me off. I'm not a powerlifter. I'm a rugby player. I'll stick with front and overhead squats.

YouHeard it from me first...

Lol. Had my panties in a bunch this morning. Got them worked out. Another 2 hour gym day today (as they've often been all week, save for yesterdays shitshow!) just wrecking random shit and having a TON of fun!

Clean & Jerk (putting the pieces together)
135 x 5
145 x 3
150 x 2
160 x 1
170 x 1
175 x 1
180 x 0
Then I wanted to work on legit clean form with light weight (and took a video. I gotta figure out how to upload it now!)
so I hit 135 x 10, 8, 6 focusing on a real front squat and dip under instead of just muscling out a power clean

Dumbell Lat Raises (like I said, fun day. pretty much just fucking around with my exercise selection. you'll see)
25lbs x 10 x 3

Dumbell Flat Bench Press
40 x 10
50 x 9
60 x 3
70 x 1
55 x 10, 6

One 8 rep set of dumbell flyes with 25lbs. Those hurt my shoulder pretty bad. Won't be doing those again. Not that I've ever done them before...

A set of 10 per side dumbell tri kickbacks (because I hate that they exist and my co-worker does them. I did them to mock him.) at 30lbs

tri rope pushdowns
65lbs x 10, 5, 7

parallel grip lat pulldown
135 x 10
145 x 10
150 x 6

skullcrushers
60 x 11, 8, 8

upright row
80lbs x 10 x 5 (lovin' this exercise)

Dumbell row
75 x 10 x 3 per side

some silly oblique twist/tri extension that kinda simulatied either chopping wood or dragging something...
65 x 10 x 2

barbell curl
80 x 8, 6
70 x 8, 8
60 x 12

that's all. lol. it was fun. I felt pretty vain today with all the isolation nonsense.

any form tips on cleans or power clean/jerks? I'm all ears. First video taken/uploaded! yay! The perks of going to the same gym as a teammate and his wife. I asked her nicely to do me that favor before she left. :) So, here it is.

If say, chewy, or VE, or Mary (or anyone else, obvs) have any form tips, I'd love to hear them. This was after what I have listed above, so I was a bit winded, but 135 has never given me any trouble. Maybe I should have taped the 175 so you could see the form breakdown...




i guess I can toss in a picture too...why not?! what's what's going on under the shirt... lol. probably look more defined if i weren't pasty white! whatevs.
