Awesome OHP to say the least. Getting comfortable in your new JoshGym?
Jim, you always have some great insight. I usually don't wear my belt for OHP. But I can see how it would be of some benefit. As for the shoes, I always wear my chucks. At this point I wear them when OHP, Squat, Bench, Deadlift, Curl, do tricep kick backs, etc... You get the point.
How do you like the Squat Shoes? What kind of difference has it made for you? I haven't made the investment at this point in time, and purchased some good squat shoes.
And, I have had issues with feeling like I am going to fall back when OHPing heavy. To combat that I have found a staggered stance works well, for myself.
Thanks again Jim. The JoshGym is awesome!!! Don't know how I did without. It will be a long while before I step foot into a commerical gym again.
