Well done on the rep PR on the OHP. Those are hard to come by. Do you ever do any push pressing?
I do not count the weight of the bar. I just throw the plates on and get to rowin'! Using the fat end of the bar is where John Meadows recommends. I feel they have helped my lats, upper back and grip strength increase.
Thanks for the support! I have not tried PP in a long time. I was recently looking/reading more about it on LiftBigEatBig. Talking about more explosion from the hips and not so much from the legs. Going to practice it with just the bar next week during my off week.

Keeping it simple is what seems to work. Why make it complicated?
Thanks for checking in OR. The support is really appreciated!
