  • Get your press on.

    Reg Park.


    (Punch yourself in the dick right now, if you don't know who Reg Park is.)


    Reg Park lifted heavy weights and he looked good doing it. (I could type up a huge post about how Reg was the second coming of Jesus, but that's not what I want to talk about.)

    What I do want to talk about, is the greatest most manliest fucking exercise ever created:

    THE REG PARK PRESS.

    (Punch yourself in the dick again, if you don't know what a Reg Park Press is.)

    Here is what you do:

    First off, walk over to the squat rack and spend the next 45 minutes or so squatting yourself into a state of awesome with singles, doubles, and triples. Squat heavy and squat often. This has nothing to do with a Reg Park Press, but since this is the powerlifting forum, I figured I needed to say something about squats.

    Step two: After squatting yourself silly, march over to the dumbbell rack and stare down those dumbbells like you want them dead. Pretend that every single one of those dumbbells owe you money and you are there to collect.

    Step three: Grab a pair of dumbbells. That's right, you need one in each hand......... none of this unilateral bull shit. Hoist those mother fuckers up to your shoulders. I don't care if you clean them, throw them, curl them, swing them, or toss them, just get them up onto your shoulders.

    Step four: With the dumbbells into position, you are at the beginning phase of the Reg Park Press.

    Step five: Using zero leg drive and a neutral (hammer) grip, you will begin pressing both dumbbells into the air. Bring them down and repeat.

    And there you have it....... a Reg Park Press is basically a neutral grip dumbbell military press.

    Sounds easy, right?

    WRONG! (Punch yourself in the dick for a third time, for thinking it was easy.)

    This exercise is humbling for three reasons:

    Reason 1). Sometimes, especially when using heavy dumbbells, it will take an act of God to get the dumbbells into the starting position.

    Reason 2). You are standing up. Most people want to do overhead db work while sitting down. Unless you pee sitting down, you shouldn't press sitting down.

    Reason 3). Staying strict is hard. It is always easier to get the weights up when using leg drive. Well guess what fuck face........using leg drive means you are not doing a Reg Park Press...... it means you are doing a dumbbell push press.


    Doing this exercise means you have made a statement to the world that you want to be a man. It means you are not going to pop your collar and wear skinny jeans while rocking out to lady gaga. It means you are going to butt fuck life into submission and smack anyone who gets in your way.

    (But DDG, what about concentration curls, what about pec dec flies, what about leg extensions, what about.........blah blah blah!!!!!!! GO FUCK YOURSELF!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

    keep it brutal, keep it manly, keep it strong...... GET YOUR PRESS ON!

          I love these, though mine I do more like an Arnold Press with the wrist positioning. Very tough movement to progress on.

                I like it, I'll be throwing it in there as I change my accessory work on 5/3/1 for more strongman specific training.

                Thanks for the post.

                  You are welcome.

                  Truth be told, anything overhead is going to carryover more to strongman than to powerlifting.

                  I will have to try and find the link, but I once seen a video from the World's Strongest Man Competition that showed Bill Kaz doing a Reg Park Press for reps as one of the events. Obviously it was from a long time ago, but it was cool nonetheless.

                  Keep us posted on how your training goes Fade!

                    You either punched yourself in the dick after reading the post, or you started doing Reg Park Presses and you got so much vagina because of your recent new found manliness, that your dick is sore from vagina overload.

                    I'm guessing scenario 2, but only you know the truth.

                        Duck,

                        Out of interest, who is the strongest person you know on Reg Park Presses?

                          Unless I am mistaken, I know you have done 114's for 6 reps and you are currently trying to get 120's for 6.

                          If you are able to get 120's for 6, you will technically be stronger than Reg Park was.

                          Reg Park did 120's for 5 on the Reg Park press.

                          So to answer your question, you are.

                          Completely off subject, but Casey Reese, a professional bench presser from Ashville, North Carolina, has done a seated barbell press of 405 pounds for 6 reps.

                          You can find that video on you tube.

                          It's not a Reg Park Press, but it is one of the most motivational videos I have ever seen and just watching that video added 10 pounds to all my lifts.
