10/20/Life Week 3, day 2; Bench training and Special Guest

McGill big 3
Band fly

Goal for the day:
Scott Paltos, exercise master, came down to FL to spend some time to shoot the breeze, brain-storm and train some. I’m just getting back on the ‘training’ horse right now, so I wanted to put some work in but not overdue it. The goal was a top set of 2 or 3 on the floor press with room to spare.

Floor press
Close grip Floor press with Fatgripz
Piston Band press-down: 3×30
Bench Dip: 3 sets to almost failure

Scott is a VERY strong athlete, especially considering how much less he weights than me, and the fact he cross-trains so much. He worked up to a floor press of 425×3 and I think that was a PR for him. I went up to 445×2 and shut it down before things got squirrely. We then got a bunch of rep work in and we banged that out and nailed the assistance in a hurry.

Scott and I had a great time working on some content and game planning for some future projects. Bob I was a mutual friend of Scott and I, and really the reason why we came together and spent time. It was a big of a tough time under the surface as Bob was supposed to be joining us for the days of content and training. Such is life. Make the most of your time here with those you care about.

We recorded a crap load of content, both inside the gym and out with some training footage and round tables and Q&A etc.
Look for those to be loaded and posted soon! [share title=”Share this Article” facebook=”true” twitter=”true” google_plus=”true” linkedin=”true” pinterest=”true” reddit=”true” email=”true”][author title=”About the Author”]

Brian is a world-class powerlifter with over two decades of elite and pro-level powerlifting under his belt. Coming back from a devastating back injury in 2012 that broke multiple bones and that most experts said he would never recover from, he has returned to the pinnacle of world-class lifting (while 100% pain and symptom-free) and is now dedicated to helping others avoid the same mistakes that he made in the past through private and group coaching in Jacksonville, FL. Brian’s impressive recovery has given him the opportunity to teach and deliver talks to physical therapists, chiropractors, medical doctors, professional strength & conditioning coaches and experts from all facets of sport, on how to avoid injury, while building anti-fragile strength and resilience in athletes.
