Main work

  • Bench Work up to a 1 rep max using the slingshot
    If you don't have a slinghot, substitute with reverse band max or board press max.
  • Jm presses 3x6-8 HERE
    If you struggle with elbow pain on the JM press, sub this movement with a lighter DB skull crusher
    "the JM press is like the bench press & a skull crusher had a baby" ;)
