I try to get control of both wrists and put them on the abdoman of my oponent and push my body up. That happens to be almost the exact angle of a close grip decline press.

It's not a formal technique it's more something I've developed myself and found to be quite effective because of my very strong upper body.

******* shitty workout. I was still sore but decided to push the envelope & I payed for it. On a side note, it was nice to have my training partner, Mike, back and going at it. Considering I benched Sunday, I was pretty impressed with my numbers despite the soreness. Everything else virtually blew & was a complete waste of time.

Thanks, man! Haha, I'm trying hard to take yours & wukka's advice on developing the core along with the upper body. It really is a lot of hard work. Squats feel so damn odd & I hate walking around the following day of deadlifts with a sore lower back, not being able to bend over to pick something up. I'm sure it'll be worth it though.

Did some pull ups, chins, & shoulders yesterday. I've been way too lazy to post any progress in my TL so sorry about that. I'm about to do some squats in an hour or so. If I'm feeling up to it, I'll post my numbers.
