Can we talk about the push-press.....I remember the form being discussed on that other board.....

But I forgot everything I read.

My question is the positioning of your hips, low back and chest.

When you start and finish one rep, should your body be in a similar position as when you are about to start a GM or a Squat? Meaning, do you get that arch in the lower back and uprighness of the chest?

p.s. I have looked at the streaming video in the "how do I do that exercise" thread, but the guy has on baggy clothes, I can't tell his form.

Well..yeah, your chest is up, core tight, feet parallel. You will need to lean back slightly cause your big head will be in the way otherwise :p

I've bumped my nose a few times. That was not fun. I thought I was going to start bleeding.

I haven't done that yet...but i've dumped a push press before...hahaha...that was funny.

And on my high pulls...I'm still getting the hang of those, sometimes I screw up and come too far up on my toes and almost fall forward :oops:

I wacked my chin at least once. Ouch. God, I'm so klutzy it's a miracle I haven't knocked myself out yet in the gym with all those heavy weights. I do have a lot of bruises ...

pfff. I bet none of you have hit yourself in the chin, then dropped the bar on your quads trying to do a full squat clean with 225.

I've taken off a bunch of skin and severely bruised my clavicle and neck when botching a power clean with 205.

I laid on the ground crying for like 5 minutes till they finally got me a beer.

That's why women need to tone, not lift weights.

I bumped my nose this morning. Totally sucked, had never done it before, and I think it's because I read this yesterday. :lol:
