Jim G. Asks:
Guys, had a question for the next episode…
My upper body (specifically my pressing) is significantly behind my lower body. For example, my best bench right now was a 215 from the last CFFB total test, but I pulled 500 from 2 inches below the knees and am at a 395 squat. Pulling is ok. 1rm chin is +90lbs.
Follow the program as written, but miss Saturdays most weeks. How would you go about getting my pressing stronger without sacrificing too much on the lower body?
