The "rail slide" military presses were done by leaning forward on a standing military press so that the bar would slide along the front edge of the squat rack as you pressed up.   Randy got the idea from John Meadows and it definitely fried my shoulders.  I think it's going to be an addition to the arsenal for sure.


I'm currently 21 weeks out from the Master's nationals and weighing about 275lbs.  I'm much leaner at this weight than I was a month or two ago and I think I'm finally starting to look like a bodybuilder again.  I'm working on populating my instantgrams and myface with photos so I'm taking plenty of selfies during my workouts to update my progress.
I still think it's going to be a tight squeeze to get where I need to be by this summer, but I'm making changes very fast right now and am hoping I'll be able to pull it all together in time.
