I'm in. I can probably PP 175-180 for a single, so I'll shoot for 250. It'll be a while, but I'll get there.

Probably a dumb questions so I will apologize in advance.

Would dips help at all or would they hinder the movement? I don't have access to dumbbells or an incline bench.

Dips will develop the triceps, shoulders (a bit), and trunk (a bit). So it wouldn't hurt.

Change the angles on your dips, and handstands and handstand pushups. These will help your shoulders, but there is more to a PP than shoulder work.

The next IGX challenge is going to be nasty. I didn't prep for the DL one but i'm going to do some practice runs for the overhead challenge!

What is the next IGX challenge?

I think the most I've jerked is 250 something....not sure about PP right now my MP was 115 x 9 yesterday so not great! I'll shoot for 250 on PP as well.

It's max reps in 30:00 overhead with 80% of bodyweight.

Press, Push press, Jerk allowed

Bar can start on racks

Anyone from Dragondoor posting ludicrous scores will be ignored.
