The @cpottsy Doesn’t Give a Fuck About Floor Pressing 315 lbs for 3
* * *
As we finish our last upper body day in the 3rd week of our current 4 week block, #bendbadboy Chad is smashing PRs on all of his lifts. He thought that he’d never see 315 on the bar again for an upper body lift before he started training this way. This 3 RM Floor Press came after hitting a PR 4 (almost 5 RM, missed from starting to slide off the bench) RM in bench press at 300 lbs and having just hit a PR set of 3 at 305 on this movement. Excited to see how things turn out when when we test our 1 RM’s next week! * * *
We use floor press as a building/accessory movement to improve our general upper body strength, our bench press and our other horizontal pressing movements. For the first 2 months of this 3 month cycle we did very little bench pressing and instead focused on other movements that would eventually build up the bench press such as dips, various arm extensions using barbells and dumbbells, overhead pressing, rows, pull ups and chin ups, band work and this movement, floor pressing with chains or just straight weight. Normally we would do them as a top set style piece, after our main focus for the workout, where we hit a weight for 6-8 reps (for hypertrophy + strength building) then do a drop set at 85-90% of our main set for as many reps as possible. We incrementally add small amounts of weight, at a high frequency each week (5 lbs each session, 3x per week) which tends to add up very quickly by the end of a month.

Turn the treadmill off, grab a resistance band and push your way through this killer cardio warmup or finisher!

It’s a Sally kind of Saturday.
Saturday morning Bootcamp @getsomexfit . Workout today.-Four rounds of: 🤙🏽box jumps
🤙🏽deadlifts
🤙🏽Russian twists
🤙🏽 sumo kettle bell high pulls

Finisher-“Sally” push-ups.
I may not be the strongest or the fastest. But I still get it done. I use to not be able to do one push up or even hold myself up. I just pushed myself enough times to do just one, then two, then...still need to build up my stamina and push past the burn.

Haven't really been able to work upper body since my boxing session with @sillett.bang. I'm still suffering from dead arms.

Warmups and handstands for breakfast this morning 💪👅.

Week 3-round 2 ✔️✔️if there is anything I have learned while doing a workout program, it’s that you don’t have to be great to start, but to be great, you just have to start. It doesn’t matter our starting points and we don’t have to compare our journey to anyone else. But as long as we start and try to be better than we were yesterday, we will progress in whatever we decide to do. Our minds are pretty powerful things. They can either help or hinder us. Our bodies achieve what our minds believe. So let’s start telling ourselves good things, and filling our minds with positive thoughts so that we can set some goals and reach them! You are strong and beautiful! Believe that! Hope everyone has a safe and fun weekend! #teambeachbody #80dayobsession #freeswag #round2 #postpartumfitness #progressnotperfection #buildingconfidence #buildingstrength

I was so inspired by watching @leesilru 's progess this past year that she inspired me to take on the challenge that @lithiumkitten presented to her! Day 352/365 of one year of handstands! The challenge is to attempt a handstand every single day for 365 days and track the progress. Wish me luck on my journey! Every day stronger :) #handstand #handstanderryday #handstandeverydamnday #buildingstrength #fatyoga #mycurvescan #balance #invert #justholdit #bodypositivity #believe #floating

1st day back after 2 months off and nearly got it 💪🏻 #superman #uniquepolefitness #lovepole #buildingstrength #polefrustrations

This is my 270 lb friend. Love working out! Trying to get in 5 - 6 days a week. Cardio and core each workout. I can’t seem to separate legs from upper body workout days. #cheerstomyfitness #buildingmuscle #corework #cardio #togoodhealth #buildingstrength #smile #lovelunges #lovemysquats #lovemymedicineball #freeweightsrock

There are 4 main areas involved in this lifelong journey of health - sleep quality, nutrition, stress management and activity. Whenever you feel like you've hit a plateau or you're sitting there wondering why the progress isn't there, always audit yourself in these 4 areas 🏯
