Well I don't know what magical formula I put together, but this morning's workout was the strongest I've felt in a long time.
FUN FACT: I didn't feel awake through most of it and almost didn't train because I was so tired.

Sometimes it's tough trying to get all those grams of protein in for the day. I'm full.



Why the Floor Press is awesome. -it builds a stupid amount of starting strength -it is easy on the shoulders -it makes the triceps stronger too -when done right, there is no ego and no question of whether it was a good lift, I’ll explain below later -it can be used to train around injuries, as a max effort exercise or as an accessory lift

OK, so how do we do it?

It’s pretty easy.

Lie on the floor in a Power Rack and set up some safety pins to catch the bar if you miss preventing your untimely death, lie on the floor and unrack, then press it to full extension.

Simple right?

There are a lot of correct ways and a lot of less than optimal ways to do most exercises and this one is no different. Here is what I feel is the best way:

Get on the floor and set your upper body up as if you were on a bench, using a foam pad or a mat is ideal so you can get your shoulders squeezed together tighter. Next, place your legs out STRAIGHT in front of you. Do not bend them. Squeeze your glutes as hard as you can before hand off and keep them squeezed. Make sure the legs stay straight through the whole lift. This takes the lower body out completely.

I feel this is the best way to build starting strength. Taking the lower body out makes your upper body ( pecs, delts, triceps and lats) do all of the work.

This makes them stronger and this is the goal.

We see people using a bent leg technique all the time on YouTube and Instagram and while this is not wrong, I feel it defeats the purpose of the exercise. Of course it’s up to you to decide why you are doing something and I am not saying it is wrong.

When you Floor Press with the legs bent you drive through your heels and your ass pops up hard off the floor as we see all the time. It’s kind of like turning it into a decline press.

Why not just do a decline press and save the wear and tear on your lower back?

I feel that to get the most out of the lift, you need to take the lower body out of the lift totally.

Keeping your legs straight ensures that your upper body out of the lift totally.

Add in the Floor Press as described for a Max Effort move or as an assistance lift for 3-5 sets of 3-5 reps. -

I use this exercise often. I started using it when I began to have a bit of a tweak in front of my right shoulder,.. my shoulder got better. :)

Use this method called the One Arm Bar with the KettleBell to achieve shoulder prowess! Wield your will not the will of pain and non performance. Great for p...


Front squats with lat straps are totally "not" for me. I've tried them several times, and the best method for me is with my arms crossed.
