The next part of the workout was a couplet or superset:
1 arm dumbbell push press for 3 -5 reps per set
scare crow - face pull combo using rings or blast straps (these can even be done with the climbing ropes I have hanging in the gym)
Check out the previous videos to see how the workout started and progresses.
Heavy overhead work was actually a mainstay in the programs of bodybuilders and lifters alike from the 1960's and prior. The bench press gained popularity once the golden era of bodybuilding came into life during the 1970's.
Our overhead work usually is in the lower rep range of 1 - 5 reps, most often 3 - 5 reps.
Check out the beasts, many of them worked up to 85 lb dumbbells and heavier.
