Getting some big pressers lined up. I don't want to derail my training right now, I've been on a good roll as of late. But Thursday is Military Press day and I'll be using 66% of my body weight. Not per the rules, but I'll post up anyways.

Standing or seated. Hmm. But hey, I'll be in for this.

I could definitely get more seated, but that's just not an option right now.

I am in, and will post a video. I will be in the 75% or more class of body weight (168, 8%)...This rocks.

I might be able to get... 5-6 reps(?) @ Heavy. Possibly. :)

Worth a shot.

Just forwarded this to a guy from my gym who could well win. BW of 103kgs and recent PB of strict 102.5kgs. Beast.
