Re: Update on bench press training

The leg extension / leg curl machine caused no problems for me . I did them as slow deliberate movements over a 6-8 rep range , pausing at the top of each movement . I never did the high rep high ballistic rocking back and forth reps I see in practice in a lot of training halls . I think that's wha...

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...

Re: Update on bench press training

Hi John, i agree with Chris about the leg curl/extension machine. It is not the machine that causes problems but how people use it. In fact it can be a great way to rehab knee injury. The hold at the top can especially be beneficial,anyway slow and steady is the way to go. I read somewhere that whe...

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...

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 ...
