Today I have a very exciting story to share! When Kristen, a Get Glutes member since day one, recently showed the forum her updated pics, my jaw dropped. I was blown away by her progress. I immediately asked her to write a guest blog for me so she could share her experiences and detail her journey. Kristen’s mental transformation has mirrored her physical transformation. I’m sure that many of my readers are frustrated with their lack of progress. So was Kristen. But she persisted and prevailed, and she learned to train smart, not just hard. So don’t give up! And Kristen, I’m damn proud of you!
Today’s article is a guest blog by Rob Panariello. HERE is an interview with Rob from 3 years ago in case you’d like to learn more about his background.

Overhead weight room exercises such as presses and jerks have gained increasing popularity in recent years. When appropriately prescribed and programed, the performances of these overhead exercises are of great benefit to athletes of various sports of participation. This dialog will provide the reader with some considerations when prescribing overhead weight room exercises.
Why perform overhead weight training exercises?
The daily activities of life as well as the requirements of athletic performance, necessitate the ability to repetitively perform overhead effectively. A painter, an electrician, a construction worker, a basketball, volleyball, tennis, track and field or throwing athlete, are examples of individuals who are required to perform overhead optimally and repeatedly over time.
I finally did it! I got the 600 lb deadlift. It took me six years to move from 550 lbs to 600 lbs, but I got there. For the past several months, I’ve been training my butt off (or better yet, on).
First Meet Results (Last Year)
HERE is a link to my first PL meet one year ago where I attained a 375 lb squat, a 287 lb bench press, a 562 lb deadlift, and a 1,223 lb total at a bodyweight of 220 lbs. This article also details my experiences as a first time competitor. My goal at last year’s meet was to pull off a 400 lb squat, 300 lb bench press, 600 lb deadlift, and 1,300 lb total, but I wasn’t quite there yet. I needed another year to make this come to fruition.
