Good work tonight Alpha. As we continue to grow as a gym we will be learning more, new complex movements. Embrace the challenge and remember it’s easier to build good habits and movement patterns than it is to break bad ones.
Today we will introducing a new movement, floor press. Upper body pressing is imperative to building strength and for now this is how we will achieve it. Here is a quick video (you’re welcome Ben) and explanation, we will discuss in more detail in class.
“To set-up for the barbell version you will need a power rack (unless you have a training partner willing and able to deadlift the bar and hand it to you). Lying on the floor as you would on a bench with your shoulder blades pulled together, elbows tucked, back arched and feet flat you will un-rack the bar, lower it under control until your triceps touch the ground, pause for a split second and reverse the movement; simple as that.”
