ORIGINAL: mooperman ok guys, did these for the 1st time the other night and have a couple of separate questions... Deadlift: when i put it down after my first lift, should i stay crouched and then left again almost immediately or give it a few seconds between lifts, ie, if i want to do 3 sets of 8 lifts, how long between each lift roughly... It depoend how you;re training but for the most part: stay crouched and lift with only a small gap to ensure you;re not bouncing Military Press: when i do this i find my back arches slightly to get the weight around the front of my face, should i move the weight directly over my head once ive cleared my face so to speak?? Try not to lean back by arching your back but keep your abs tight and kind of lean back a little with your whole body, it's a bittle fiddly but is easier and VERY worth doing at high weights. Yes, press it over your head with your shoulders nice and back Thanks for input, ive tried youtube for these but there are so many videos i'm not 100%.... or if someone could link to a half decent video... cheers Mark
ORIGINAL: mooperman Extra question...... when i do the military press on each rep i should bring it down to the chest before i raise again right...?
