308_1[1]So it didn’t take me long to find a movement that I felt in my abs, the wall handstand push up.  I did exactly one rep before I felt a little pull in my abs after I which I immediately kicked off the wall.

For some reason near the end of my shoulder workout I wondered how much I could push overhead one time in a seated barbell shoulder press, a movement I haven’t done in a long, long time.  The answer appeared to be around 142.5 lbs.  I brought the bar all the way down to my upper chest for the rep and barely got it locked back out.  I would hope if I tried the same thing at the beginning of a shoulder workout I might be able to get 155 pounds up there, maybe not.
