Ahhhhh, reverse grip bench. I have never mastered this movement.

Every time that I attempt it, and I've tried it dozens of times through the years, it just feels weird to me and I always worry about the bar slipping out of my hands.

Nice log btw👍

thinking about pulling sumo again. Been coaching 132 lber for a meet tomorrow and she had 305 on the bar and i pulled a rep or two sumo and it felt so smooth
I love conventional and I am stronger with that. I started sumo because I can remain more upright which seems to aggravate my hip much less ( impingement inflammation). I also have found I can train more frequently because less on lower back. I definitely feel more leg involvement in sumo which is good for me right now. Thinking in long run I will match my conventional.

Yes it was little awkward at first but you get use to it.

Congrats on PR!

Looking back a little I saw you did some handstand push ups.

They are tough!
Thanks. Yes. I have been doing them periodically. I remember when I could only get 4. Prioritizing the press has made a big difference.

I am starting push pull legs for 3-6 weeks. Going for higher rep prs. I will be taking everything to failure and close. Training frequency will go down. I will go back to what I was doing once I go stale with this.

How do you position your hands to do the v bar pulldowns?
