32kg Press redux

After reading a comment on James Thomas SFG 2's Beast press on my FB time line I had a pressing epiphany.Takei Masushita made note that it was nice to see that James had his elbow facing forward as he pressed and a light bulb went off off for me regarding my left arm press, of late.
I was keeping my upper arm too angled across my body and  my arm was spinning out way to fat to get the all important vertical forearm necessary for a strong press. So now, as I cleaned the weight I made sure to keep the vertical forearm and the elbow facing forward before I pressed.

It worked like a charm! Last week I missed the 32 kg press 5 times in a row on my left side and today made it three times in a row despite being wicked tired!

The lockout was weak but the press was solid and it's a great beginning for my left arm. After all, the 32 kg is just 3 or so pounds light of a half bodyweight press for me right now. I'll take it.
