Friday night at the bar, my type of weekend.
2x5 @ 355
Today’s work out was hard. I was in my head, and I was just tired. I completed it, and I know tomorrow is another day. It’s okay.
Bench was only at 125.. and it was so hard. I initially couldn’t even unrack it. I had to reset and get out of my head.
Don’t psych yourself out. You are your only limit. #girlswholift #weightloss #mindovermatter #workout #benchpress #wheresyourheadat
2nd heavy sesh of the prep feeling alright.. need to get into the habit of resetting properly between reps and treating them all basically like singles.. chipping away, cheers to the boss man for the spot and queuing 🔥🔥 @atlasgymnasium
🔥My new YouTube video on staying lean while eating out is live on my channel IQphysique. See the link in my bio!🔥
This one tip will increase your bench press immediately! A moment arm is a physics term describing the distance between a joint and the line of force. The moment arm between the shoulder (joint) and the line of force (force into bar) is longer if you just push the bar straight up. Think about it. The bar is literally farther away from your shoulders, so your anterior delts have to do more work to get the bar back to the starting position over your shoulders.
Now if you push up and back off the chest, the load will be closer to your shoulders from the beginning of lifting the barbell up, so there is a smaller moment arm. Thus, this will likely prevent your shoulders from being a limiting factor in your bench press.
We see that novices tend to push the bar straight up off their chest. Then they push it back to the starting position. We see advanced lifters push the bar up and back immediately off the chest. Even if they don't realize it, the advanced lifters are making the movement biomechanically advantageous.
So next time you bench, remember to push the bar UP and BACK off your chest instead of just straight up.

475 for fives. Ready for this deload
This happened today...this isn’t to shame (although it’s pretty terrible) it is to learn! .
The lesson? Leave your ego at the door! Nobody cares if you can “bench” 4 plates if you move the damn bar 2”! .
I have seen this guy do this before. The first video isn’t even what he ended with! He went up to 425# and moved it even less! .
If you cant lift it well, don’t. You’re going to get hurt, people are going to post about how ridiculous you look on their fitness instas. .
Use as much range of motion as you can! You need to engage stress under tension for a long time to break muscle fibers and grow strength. Forget the ego, forget the numbers on the weights. What matters is how strong you ACTUALLY are. When it comes time to fight for your life the felon on the other end does not give two shits how much weight you can lift with an 1/8th rep! .
Finally, don’t be that guy. In case you’re wondering. He can “curl” 100lb dumbbells too...with his whole body. .
Get fit, get strong and ALWAYS go home safe. Good guys always win. .

My MISSING single from yesterday. Realized I actually squatted 300 for 3 singles + 1 triple!!!! Which means a total of 6 reps!!! I guess I actually might be getting stronger AND that’s a total of 3 F bombs.
Had a great shoulder workout with @w.moxley.
This video is a workout that him and I came up with while there. We were looking to really feel the burn in the rear delts so we decided to try it out and let me tell you it works great. This was my first time ever trying the second part of the set with the cables and it may be my new favorite shoulder workout in general, besides OHP.
Crunches for time. Going to my school for a football game this afternoon but I still had to get a workout. Hit shoulders with @_sammysfitness.
This is me hitting a 100lb ez curl bar 3 sets of 9 focusing on getting it above the nipple line. Let me know what you hit today!
IF YOU’RE LOOKING TO IMPROVE YOUR LATS this is a must do. After a high volume back day I like to throw these in at the end of it to really toast the lats. Aim for 4 sets of 10, light weight then once you have the form down you can start increasing it. 📹: @w.moxley
