Re: Update on bench press training

John Have you ever considered getting a weighted vest and doing squats. The vest distributes the payload (20,40 or 60#) over the entire torso so no ecessive downward pressure on neck & spine . Also hipbelt squats are a nice alternative with payload dangling from the belt . You can rig the hip harne...

Re: Update on bench press training

John, i admire your courage and tenacity. Just a tip for the bench press, and this is only if you have training buddies or spotters, try to load up in your bench racks a reallly high poundage eg about another 20 or more pounds than your best full lift, then just try to lift the bar,off the racks, d...

Update on bench press training

So far, so good! Knocked the bench press training back to three days a week doing 5 heavy singles at 90% on Monday, then backing down to 3x3 and then finally 3-5-7. Then 65% on Wednesday for 4 sets of 5-7, and 80% for 5-7 sets of 5-7 reps on Friday. After each bench day, I do pullups, some form of o...

Re: training Log Forum 2019

Happy Birthday! Cheers! I worked on bench pressing this evening by doing 10 sets of 3 with a shoulder width grip and 6 sets of seated cable curls on my Total Gym. Gonna switch over to a Sheiko bench pressing routine come Monday as I've burned out on the Smolov routine! I think I was able to eke out ...

Re: Message to new members

I'll "second" that! We can all learn from each other. I've been in the iron game since the early 1970's and I know there are members here who've been into it longer than I have! I am constantly learning. One of the things I learned during my physical culture journey is that there is always something...

Re: PAUL WYNTER PASSING.

Oh bummer! The "greats" are passing everyday! We're losing all the notable bodybuilders from the Golden Era and before. Truly sad! I remember the first time I saw a photo of Paul was in some workout manuals my buddy had when we were in high school in the mid 1970's! There was a course he purchased, ...

Re: Expanders

Hi John, glad your interest for cables has been peeked again. I feel everyone no matter what else they are doing would benefit from inclusion of some cable work in their program. To me the three essentials are front pull, overhead downward pull and back press. These will hit just about every muscle...

Re: Expanders

IMO,Without doubt one of the very best and underrated exercises must be the cable front pull. I had not been doing much work on this for the past few months and decided to introduce it into my Thursday B/W routine in place of inverted pull ups, [another good exercise]alternated with weighted push u...
