What is different about the way you do your OHP and your Push Press? I think of them as the same exercise. Do you do them with your knees locked?

OHP:



Push Press:



Legs don't move in OHP, or at least not the way I was taught to do them.

Ok I see what's going on. The second video "push press" we call "push jerk". And the OHP we would call "push press". :mrgreen:

All this crazy lingo! I think OHP and military press are the same thing too.

I've always wondered what a push jerk was, but I was too lazy to google it, good to know!

06/09/11:

Hill repeats (7% grade on treadmill) - 4 x 0.5 miles

I forgot my Garmin so I don't have times but they were NOT very speedy! The last repeat I ran 4.7 mph the whole way, which is pretty slow. But I was really tuckered out!

Ah, life stuff. I hope you're doing ok. That's usually my reason why I can't seem to fit in four days of strength training each week!

Just had a couple of crazy busy days at work. Life always gets hectic at the end of the business quarter. But other times it quiets down so I can't complain too much.

I would think the impressive part is that they are so close together. You didn't lag off towards the end. If I did it, my 3rd time would have been a lot longer than the first. Yours were all very close to each other.

That's a good point Rob! I'm probably never going to be a super quick runner, but I'm a heck of a lot faster than I used to be. I remember when 10 minute miles seemed really fast to me.

06/17/11:

AM:
3x7 min, 3 min rest

#1 - 0.82 miles
#2 - 0.78 miles
#3 - 0.82 miles

Still not super speedy, but a better pace than yesterday.

PM:
OHP Day - Wave C

OHP:
2x5x55
1x3x55
1x5x65
1x3x75
1x1x85 (PR!)

Was going to do some push presses after this, but that 1x85 totally killed my front delts and there was no way that was happening.

Assisted Pullups (70 lbs):
4
3
2

Farmer Walks:
2 sets with 50 lb db's
