    Preparing for a gym record lift-advice please

    i am attempting a gym lifting record next week (200kgx8 reps seated shoulder press). It will be at 7pm. How would you prepare for it nutrition wise to help achieve my goal?

    Thanks

    make sure to consume plenty of salt and water and carbohydrates the day before and the day of the attempt.
    however I highly doubt your claim of pressing 200kg for 8 reps.

    I'm assuming lbs....?

    Don't try any new foods you haven't eaten before and know you're ok with....nothing like eating a new exotic food and lifting with bubble guts worrying about sh!tting your self.

    He likely means a plate loaded press or some sort of pulley machine.

    200kg on a bar is insane.

    Plate loaded press, correct. I have done 220kg before for 4 reps.

    I always laugh when people load those machines up but never go near the freeweight squat bar

    yep. the machine press weight is deceiving . the fact that its locked in place and on a track makes it so you need zero stabilizer strength, its all pressing strength and nothing more and you can handle a ton more weight

    I can hammer strength incline machine press 5 plates per side for 6 reps, yet when I drop down to actual barbell bench press I have to pull off 2 plates per side

    Very much safer when going to failure and being spotted for forced reps.

    They are also alot easier on the shoulders.
