Press, 1 x 1 x 1 x 1 x 1 x 1 x 1

Interesting facts concerning nose bleeds: HERE

"Perhaps the most well-known Epistaxis-related death was that of Attila the Hun. He drank a colossal amount of alcohol on his wedding night after his parley with Pope Leo I, suffered a nosebleed in his sleep and was suffocated by the blood."

New PR today by 8#!! I wish it was more but I am pretty excited about it. I think I am weighing in at 170# so it is a little over BW. Great job this morning everyone!

ken c said...

huh, death by nose bleed. in a similar manner of death, john bonham (drummer for led zeppelin) drank a collosal amount of alcohol and later choked on his own vomit. on a related note, one of the drummers for spinal tap died by choking on someone else's vomit.

jason: nice pr dude! over body weight. impressive.

scott said...

Great job on the pr Jason.

Worked out with Rob today and we both set a new pr at 175#.

145#, #155, #165, #175, #175 (fail), #175, #175.

Also, great job from Adrian the other Jason on putting up #195...impressive.

I am excited it about it Buzzard! Good job!!

Mine was almost my uhh assweight. Is that a measurement? Should be 'cause it is significant. 65 and I didn't try more to get to failure. Shoulda.

hey....i like the assweight concept...butt (oops, pun) that would mean more weight for the girls and less for skinny butt guys! maybe i don't like that concept after all! i just want to do exercises that will LIFT it..I like mo's idea of hanging upside down...anything to fight gravity!!

Buzzard nice job man. I'd be stoked to be able to press my body weight. I'm not sure if I'll get to come in today, I hope to be able to soooo maybe I'll see you guys in the evening class!

Mo said...

In actuality all hanging upside down does is make the blood rush to your head. I mean that is what I've heard...uhh I think our only option is Spanks or maybe we'll have to develop Spanks with suspenders when things really go south.

Go Emily!

115, 135, 145, 155, 160, 165(fail), 135x7
Feeling pretty weak compared to some of you good pressers. Good job everybody at the 6pm class, it was hot on the skillet today!

raif said...

did 210 press 2 weeks ago so decided to do sets of 5. 175.185.195(4).195(3). during rest for presses added 45's and did sets of 5 on squats. felt good to put some weight on these "how muchyabench" legs.

ps need to lose a little weight to do my bodyweight on press (3 lbs)

ChrisChev said...

Glad it was just presses today at 4.30 on the skillet....115,135, 155,160, 170 (no bueno), 160. first time to max out at presses. glad to have a weight to shoot for to beat..good job 4.30 class...

I'm glad we're done having kids 'cause I think my eggs were fried on the skillet today (Raiford's my ghost writer on that one). Seriously, when are we going to get that tarp up? I'd bet there'd be a lot of takers at a "hang the tarp" party (it worked for the painting).

ken c said...

wow what a great 6pm class today! 16 of you killers out there in the burning sun pressing heavy. saw some great efforts out there today. you guys did great!
