Overhead static holds

Post by DubDub » Sun Jun 25, 2006 7:50 pm

As you may have seen I tried some overhead work today. Part of it was trying to just do static holds above my head to learn to control weight overhead. My question is, how do I know when I'm ready to increase the weight I'm holding. And also how long I should aim to do each set. Today for instance I did
1 set 60 seconds 65lbs and
2 sets 30 seconds 65lbs.

wondering if I should do (in the future):
3s 30 seconds 95lbs or

3s 10 seconds 135lbs

What would give me the best results for control?
