For heavy OHP...assuming I've warmed up properly...

I grab the bar, tense my whole body, quickly unrack the weight, squeeze my glutes and press away...

some body tension and a little mental intensity make a difference.

as for stance, go with a foot width that works for you...don't choose an artificial width if it isn't optimal.

A good way to choose foot width is to jump up stretching both hands up as high as you can and then look down after you land. That is likely to be your best foot width. Don't think about your feet when you jump though, that'll screw it up. Just jump and see what happens. Try it and see if that helps.

I just use the same stance as for squats (shoulder-width or a little outside that, and feet pointing out a bit). Same for rows too. And curls, etc. etc. Keeps it simple.

LOGS COMING, BUT HERES AN UPDATE ON MY PHYSIQUE/WEIGHT

In 20 days it appears I've added 5 pounds.

My BMI (although not really relevant) went from 21.08, to 21.90.

Now to measure my body fat I'm using scales. When using body fat scales they're said to undershoot the percentage slightly by 1 or 2 percentage marks.
This doesn't matter though, because as long as that premise of up and down is there, I know weather my bf has raised or lowered.

It read out before I started with the diet at 9.5%. As I said, likely underestimated, but now, 20 days later, its coming out as 10.2%.

So I know I've increased there even if the reading isn't totally accurate.


Doesn't look great does it... I mean I've gained 5 pounds and upped my body fat percentage. Totally the opposite of what I wanted to do.
Which I was assured wouldn't happen (the bf) so I assume theres some explanation for this other than the fact that Iv'e gotten fatter, because we all know I'm not having that.
I'd measure my bicep and waist like 5k told me, but to tell you the truth, I stupidly completely forgot to do that before I started. I just measured weight.


On the upside, I'm looking considerably more muscular. Sort of like I've got the pump, and its stayed there.
Can't tell weather I've put on any visible fat though. I mean when I eat more food my stomach goes 2 or 3 times the size, which used to make me think I was just getting fat. Then when I stop eating all the carbs it goes right back down, so I can't tell at this point.


So there's an update. Can't say I'm impressed with the results on the whole.

Workouts gone great however, will post it up now.


EDIT: Just thought, it could be the fact that my after weight has increased? Both the bf and the extra 5 pounds I've gained. I don't know. Thought water weight fluctuations we're only during the first week however.

WORKOUT

BENCH PRESS - 5X5 - 47.5KG, 50KG SET AT END
First off, that set at the end was so I had some idea of what to lift next time, which it gave me. I'll be shooting for 50 KG next time. Saves me from having to waste time figuring it out come next workout.
Went really well. Upped the weight. The first time I can properly feel I've gotten stronger. 47.5KG used to be very difficult for me to get 5x5 with, was a real struggle, but managed it fine this time.
SQUATS - 5X14 AVERAGE - 60KG
Upped the weight, tightened form, fewer reps.
Went good, my form is defiantly getting better, allot less wobbly.
I'll carry on slowly adding weight and ease myself into them. They're certainly a lift to be respected, don't want to end up killing myself!
ONE ARM DUMBBELL ROWS - 5X5 - 25KG
They're going really well, one of my strongest lifts. Upped the weight. Not much else to say.
BARBELL CURLES - 4X6 - ?
For some reason I forgot to log the weight here, so I'll update this when I find out.
I did increase the weight though, feels allot more challenging now.
AB ROLLOUTS
Didn't go so well, can't seem to do them. Plus my abs are killing from last time. Not sure what to do about those really.


Great workout, everything feels more challenging now, I've figured out the right weight to be using for just about everything.
Most importantly I'm enjoying it, which I wasn't really before I restarted again.


Thanks for stopping by!

- Linden

I've looked at your log and the info above and I can tell you put on muscle. That scale your using SUCKS. If you drink 2L of water before going on that thing your bodyfat can shoot up ALOT. By looking at your log and the way you feel about going with your lifts for example the bench press you have put on quality size. The extra 'BF' is water weight dont worry about it. Great job Linden and dont worry about the scale > You said you look better that's the only thing that matters not what some scale says.
