Here is the training video:

I did 7 exercises, and I hit 7 all-time PR’s… now that’s what I’m talking about!

This was a very normal looking push workout for me. I did 2 exercises for chest, 3 for shoulders, and 2 for triceps. I also did an “extreme stretch” after each body part. I don’t normally list the extreme stretches here, but needless to say I get them done.

There are so many weird experiments that I’m running in my push workouts, but so far all of them are working. I’m starting to get the hang of the Jansen press (my new favorite triceps exercise), so I’m looking forward to really packing on the weight on that movement in the next few weeks.

If you don’t know what the Jansen press (because you’re not subscribed to my YouTube channel), then let me fill you in. It is basically a hybrid between a JM press, and a close grip bench press. You lower the weight as a JM press. Then in the bottom position you roll the bar forward over your chest, and press the weight back up to lockout as a close grip bench press.

The Jansen press lets you eccentrically overload your triceps with a heavier than normal weight during the lowering phase. You also get to perform a heavy close grip bench press where your triceps are slightly pre-fatigued, so you actually recruit your triceps more than you would on a regular close grip bench press.

This exercise is INSANE, and I’m looking forward to seeing how far I can push it!
