I have a fitness test coming up for my job. The % body weight push test occurs in a power rack with the safety bars close to your chest as (typically 2-4 inches) while lying down, the bar bell is then placed on the safety bars. I then have to press/push the bar until my elbows lock out. I've heard its commonly called a pin press. The test is suppose to mimic the machine that my agency uses nationally but we don't have access to, your basic bench press machine
Last May (2012) I was barely able to get 160 up. Within a month I need to be in the 170-75 range. Is this possible?
Our agency "fitness instructor" basically said I really need to work on my "stabilizer muscles."
What do I need to do to get within the 175 range within a month? I have protein, creatine, access to a gym, and can workout as long as I want.
What is your advice? What exercises should I do? Supplements?
