Did you actually chalk your legs or did you use baby powder? Ive seen someone do this in my gym but the chalk will only increase the friction and makes things harder. The white powder on guys legs in comps and so on is baby powder as this has the opposite effect.

Well, i didnt have any baby powder as i didnt anticipate it being an issue. My legs were quite sticky and i was just having a guess at the fact my legs were sweaty and hairy being a reason for the bar sticking, so tried chalk. You are quite right, the chalk didn't help. Live and learn. Happy

21-03-2011 Long day at uni today- 830 am until 730pm. Not all us students are dossers lol
Push Press- first time doing these properly- got some good technique tips from Vanilla Gorilla

210x3 - no straps- had problem locking the last rep out and thought it was due to my shots and the bar getting caught, so rolled the shorts up.
210x3- straps - again, problem locking out, hitch came in to play here. So, chalked my legs.
210x3- straps- again, problem locking out, massive hitch.
180x2 and left it, was going to do 2x6 here, but i think i like my back in one piece.

Either I have a very weak upper back or push presses destroyed my lockout. Seeing as i've never had to hitch a deadlift before, have done 240 without a hitch, i think the push press took its toll.

Chinups BW x8,8,8,8 easy peasy.

That was it for today, felt happy about the push press and learning the technique better, 90 should fly up effortlessly for 3x3 next week.

Those 140 squats were not just ATG and PAUSED, they were also RAW!
