Tuesday Dec 27th Bent Press Ladders


I spent my Christmas vacation reading Pavel’s “Power to the People” and tried a couple of things this weekend.

Deadlifts from an elevated position.  Held at the top for 5 seconds before lowering.  325#, 375#, 400#

Bent Press with a 55# (35# barbell and two 10# rubber plates).  Quite awkward actually.  Must definitely work on the support infrastructure and balance to do more than one rep.  Also, low ceiling in basement is an impediment that I can make adjustments for by using the smaller diameter 10# metal plates.  There was also an incident involving improperly placed spring clips on the weights…. DOH!!

Tuesday Lunchtime Workout

Bent Press:

20# KB Bent Press x 3/side
35# KB Bent Press x 3/side
35# KB Bent Press x 1+2+3/side
35# KB Bent Press x 1+2+3/side

Total Reps: 36 Bent Presses

I’d like to focus on the continuation of the Bent Press Ladders and plan a “wave cycle” for improvements.  We’ll see how much my upcoming travel schedule allows.
