    I used to like doing overhead squats out of the bottom position - it really helps you learn how to stay super tight in your upper back which is the crucial part of the OHS. I should do those again - they always killed my upper back. The only problem is that OHS are tough on the wrists.

    Are you training for anything specific or just trying to get stronger?

    Just strength really.

    On the bottom position OHS, do you start with the bar on the pins? How do you set up for that?

    Today -

    warm up

    flat DB bench press -
    1x3 w/ x2 100 lb dumb bells
    3x2 w/ x2 100 lb dumb bells

    weighted chin up -
    6x2 +55 lbs (pronated x2, neutral x2, supinated x2)

    KB unilateral OHP -
    3x8 each side 55 lbs

    unilateral DB row -
    3x6 each side 110 lbs

    stir-the-pot -
    2x75 seconds (OUCH)

    stretch

    Good shit. I didn't think I'd have much for the benching, and I was right. All the reps were solid though. OHP felt very solid, I really like doing them with the kettlebell.

    Thanks x. I've actually repped out the 100's much better in the past, as well as the 105's.

    I am much lighter than what I used to be though (185 instead of 205), so I am pretty happy with my strength right now.

    Yeah I was. I did not end up graduating with that though. I became a licensed massage therapist last summer. I am just finishing up my certification in orthopedic massage. I am seriously considering finishing my kinesiology degree though. I just have some things to figure out.

    Have you stayed in touch with Patrick Ward at all? He is actually the one that inspired me to get into massage therapy. He's doing some awesome things.

    Nah, Romanian deadlift, not rack deadlifts.

    Today -

    warm up

    KB Turkish get-up -
    5x1 each side 70 lbs
    1x2 each side 70 lbs

    chin ups -
    2x8 BW neutral grip
    5x5 BW supinated grip

    push up w/ feet on 34.5" box -
    4x10 BW

    bird dogs -
    5 sets, 20 second isometric hold each per set.

    KB single arm swing -
    2x10 each side 65 lbs

    Phew! I fuckin' love Turkish get-ups. I used to hate them, but now that I have my form down and I'm using heavier weight..lots of fun. I just love the feeling of having the weight drive down through my arm into my spine as I stand up with it.

    I need to work on my chin up repping, so I am going to start doing a lot of sets of moderate-lowish reps, as my chin up endurance is not great.

    Soon I'll be transitioning to hand stand push ups (feet on the wall of course), I am looking forward to that.
