95 lb Military press 6x5(pr), 85 lb barbell hacks, floor pushups ( pr), sled pull
Played around with Rippetoes Oly press technique and didn't really like it. It doesn't help my main problem which is the overhead position, in fact it makes it worse.
The close grip makes my lockout even more restricted and I think my layback technique is probably the best for me right now.
The Oly start does bypass the shoulder a little but I think my technique is kind of a blend between his and a true strict press. I went up to 85 lbs with it but I didn't get a really good feeling from it so I went back.
The above video is kind of a hybrid.the grip is close and I started using some hip drive naturally so it wasn't too bad.
The PR on the press was just an extra set. I didn't look at the number before so I wasn't sure. The good news is that the weight felt light in my hands
