  1. Welcome to the Nerd Fitness Overhead Press Leaderboard. Below you will find the top Overhead Press lifts (that have been reported) on the Nerd Fitness forum organized by Wilkes Points. For more information about the Wilkes Coefficient, go here. The following are the rules for using the Nerd Fitness Leaderboards.

    Kishi Says Balance

    Still reeling from my Feelings on this game. So, that's the theme music. Deal with it. So, basically, I've been struggling with balance. Sleep and food and weights and martial arts. It's a lot of fun, but the truth is, I want to skew more toward martial arts. And, looking down the line, one other thing that I'm going to want to do is to get into flexibility training. Right now, there's no way that the current schedule is going to let that happen. Also, I'm about as heavy as I was back in high school, and it's not muscle that's making the difference. I want to fix that.
  3. So last week I started adding the Overhead Press to my lifts. I was surprised at how challenging it was compared to the Bench, Squat, and Deadlift. Even with 20 less pounds from those other lifts, I was only able to get to 3 reps on all but one of my 5 sets, in which I got 4. This week I attacked the lift with renewed vigor, being sure to warm up a bit longer, and cranked out all 5 reps on all 5 sets. Which means next week I get to add more weight. Level up!
  4. The lions sing and the hills take flight. The moon by day, and the sun by night. Blind woman, deaf man, jackdaw fool. Let the Lord of Chaos rule. Aiyaa. I must hate myself. There's 47 different POV characters in this book, and the prologue is 30K words. But, lots of cool things happen here. Can't deny that. Anyway, the month's work is cut out for me. NaNoWriMo is up in about a week, and I got a GoRuck to perform. We're coming down to the wire in terms of how prepared we're going to be for that (and by we, I mean me. I'm sure @RisenPhoenix has this in hand).
  5. I haven't done a form check in a while, and it seems like my form on a few things might be shaky. I've been doing squat, bench, deadlift, overhead press, and power clean as described in Starting Strength, although I am no longer doing that program. Hopefully it won't be too confusing to do all five in one thread. Seems like my depth here is borderline. Here is where I think I might have a significant form problem. For several months now, whenever I do overhead press, the outside of my right elbow (possibly my lateral epicondyle) hurts at the bottom o
  6. As promised form check videos for three of my excercises. Any feedback would be great. The set up for the squat for me is usually the hardest part especially with getting it on the right place on my back. And my depth needs to be improved I think.

  7. This started initially as a goal in one of my challenges. Since then I've just been using it to keep track of my form changes and improvements.
  8. So, form check: 1/05/2015, Squats. Disclaimer: fat man in an ill-fitting tank-top. And apparently I need better shorts. Weight is 95 pounds. Yeah, I know, but I want to nail the form before ramping up. First video: shot from 11 o'clock, low. Second video: shot from 4 o'clock, low.
  9. I'm making a second attempt at Stronglifts, and I'd like to start checking my form early on to catch any mistakes I'm making. All my starting videos will be at 45 lb, except for the deadlift, which will be at 95 lb. I'm gonna post the barbell row later, because after looking over the Stronglifts stuff again, I realized that I've been doing the barbell rows wrong (my back was at a 40 degree angle). Next time I do those, I'll fix my form and film it again. Squat Bench Press (side) (front) Overhead Press (side) (front) Deadlift Barbell Row, 55lb Once I hit 95 lb on my squat (or sooner, if I
  10. Hey guys. After reading some post i decided to try this filming thing and do some form checks. I recently decided to try stronglifts so still using lighter weights so any advice would be welcomed. Sorry if the place is kinda dark the place was well overcast. http://youtu.be/DOcx-GjxPsk Squat set 1 95lbs http://youtu.be/IojEkl0Fv3Q Squat set 5 95lbs http://youtu.be/4HyXyjhTrck over head press set 5 45lbs http://youtu.be/eyh4R9Z243M deadlift 90lbs Thanks in advance
  11. I started doing Stronglifts at the beginning of this challenge. Here are some form check videos. Don't judge - I'm a noob, so let any feedback be kind Thanks!
  12. Hey guys! I have started lifting heavy recently and need some quantitative advice. Deadlift - Done 5 x 93 lbs + 20 x 70 lbs Squat - Done 5 x 70 lbs + 25 x 50 lbs Overhead Press - Done 25 x 50 lbs I felt as if I could go heavier, but not for 5 reps at a time. So should I? Or just increase to 10x or 12x reps and then add lbs? I have 4.5 lbs dumbbells and 26.5 lbs barbell. Plates - 11 lbs x 4 16.5 lbs x 2 22 lbs x 2 5.5 lbs x 2 2.75 lbs x 6 Kettlebell - 17.5 lbs So, adding everything I can increase the load to around 90 kg or 200
  13. Hey Gang, I'd post this in Rip's forum, but I know he'd just chastise me ha, so I thought I'd get your takes on this variation. I have an issue when I do the over head press that causes a pain/tendon catch. It's not necessarily always painful, but it feels like a tendon catches and makes my forearm go tingly/numb. It's on my right forearm, and if looking at the back of my hand, it's on the inside of the meaty part of the forearm, left hand side/almost right on top. The pain is when I bring the bar down and the angle between bicep and forearm decreases. If that makes any sense. Anyway, I'm
