I've been real lucky - I live a few minutes away, literally, from the state NAS chair (Chris Lawyer), and his gym which is full of great implements (The Weight Room).

Not to take things too far off topic - but what do you guys do in terms of pressing, as it relates to strongman?

I'm a terrible presser, mostly because I haven;t done too much of it. I'm up to a 160# shoulder press at a BW of 190. Any good programs you've tried? Bench any? Lots of people at p&b advocate bands for overhead work.

So far, I've tried linear 5x5's, texas method, and now I'm just running the press through the percentages of the 6 week russian squat program - actually seems to be working well.

It seems that strength in the lockout, good leg drive, and good jerk technique would make for the best pressing when it comes to strongman - what do you guys think?
