  • clean and press in blast 2 way split

    hey guys. im not sure if this has been discussed before. i just watched a video of justin harris doing clean and press. im not sure if it was rest pause style or straight set. just wondering if this exercise can be used in the 2 way split as a shoulder exercise and has anyone done so?? also, in that video, does anyone know if justin was using the 2way split and doing standard dc training or was he training powerlifting style??

    Yes, the clean and press can be used as a shoulder exercise on DC's 2-way split. In the grand scheme of things, these things don't matter. Just do what you gotta do and get strong.

      Straight set it.

      Rest Pause on an exercise as complex as a clean and press is not a good idea.

        Pretty sure on Project Superheavyweight Justin is RP those Clean and Presses.

          I did this and had some success.

            What are people's opinions on RPing pressing movements anyway? I've heard a variety of answers. Some people straight set them, some RP them (I'm talking movements like push presses, one arm DB movements, etc.)

              I rest pause every pressing movement...however, I have straight setted DB shoulder presses in a blast before simply because of all the damn effort it takes getting those things in place ready to press for an RP set.

                I'm with Lock on this one too. Only one I don't RP is DB shoulder press.

                Additionally, if I'm working around an injury, sometimes I'll do one heavish set and one light set, just so I don't have to go so heavy and aggravate the injury.

                  Alright, thanks for the input. I know Dogg has stated that shoulder movements are RP'd anyhow but it always seemed sort of weird to not RP lower back heavy quad and back thickness movements, but rest pause standing shoulder exercises.
                  Not that I'm doing DC or anything, but I have experimented with rest pause in the past and wondered how people felt about utilizing it for shoulders. I agree with the straight setting DB presses though, getting the damn things up (whether seated or standing) is just such a hassle that it's better to straight set them.
                  Unless you're Poundstone of course, in which case cleaning a 200lb dumbbell is hardly any effort at all.
