Default The JM Press

Today I decided to do something new after my normal overhead pressing. My triceps are underdeveloped and certainly could be stronger... So I watched and EliteFTS video of Dave Tate doing JM Presses before I went and decided to give it a shot. I was a bit weary at first because of its similarities to skullcrushers(what I believe I initially hurt my elbow on a while a back), but good lord, am I glad I decided to do it. Never before have I felt my triceps working so much. Never before have I got such a pump in my arms. After was all was lifted and done, I decided to do some dumbell pressing just to finish off press and I had a hard time doing 4 reps with the 45 lb dumbells when it came to pressing. My triceps were dead. I was happy about that actually. I think I have finally found the "secret" to actually getting them stronger so my bench might move up 5-10 pounds.

I'm excited and felt like sharing this. For what it's worth, I only had to use 95 lbs for 4 sets of 8-10 reps, sometimes having to reset my grip, to get such contraction in my triceps. I really believe this is something that might help me out immensely. (Now to stop killing the deadlift volume so I'll be fresh for squat days...)

Thanks for sharing. Skullcrushers hurt my elbows. Going to try JM's next time. How much weight did you start with to test them out?

I started with the bar and then went straight to 95 lbs after getting the feel of the movement. My triceps are weak as hell(shoot, my whole body is...I'll probably think that when I deadlift 1,000) so I doubt that weight is very impressive. Then again, as long as it gets my triceps up to par and helps out my bench, I don't think starting at a low weight is embarrassing at all.

As with any movement or exercise, just make sure the majority of the load is where it needs to be. On dips, it's all chest. On the bench press or overhead, it's a bit of triceps. On this though, it was almost all triceps with a bit I could feel on my chest. I've never received so much stimulation. Definitely give them a try. I can't wait to do them again on my bench day.
