It will come back. I lost 10lbs over 2 weeks in Europe. Didn't do one pushup/chinup. I was back to normal in about a month.Biceps just hit the 17" mark. We made it brahs. Looks much smaller than I thought it would, prob cause Im still so fat
Im feeling paused bench. Hit a 3x4 today only ~10lbs down from my best TnG 5x4 sets. Also really liking close grip dumbbell bench. CGBBBP doesnt agree with my wrists.
Best part about Mike Chang is he doesn't even have a six pack Amazed at how well he has distilled everything wrong with the fitness industry down to an IV drip
Why does the Smith machine exist... even upright rows suck on them I am seriously considering buying an Olympic barbell to bring down to my apt gym. They redid everything and kept the shit machine

I might want to compete one day. I am putting up decent numbers for someone at the weight I hope to be.Plus TnG feels cheaty. I don't do the sternum bounce but I'm def using some stretch reflex. I can do pause reps with my working weight on heavy squats.... def can't do pause reps on my working weight for heavy bench.Maybe I just need to dial the weight back a little bit and focus on form.
Whats the correct way to pause bench.... I was pretty much letting the weight sit on my chest for a second, which I feel now was wrong. I watched some of Charly's paused bench work and it looked damn near TnG. Are you basically supposed to pause at the bottom just long enough to dissipate the stretch reflex? And yea I would want to do more reps than that. I like my 3/6/9 approach. I will probably do 3 reps for pin press, 6 reps for paused bench and 9 reps for CGBP
What rep ranges and 1RM%ages are good for paused bench and pin press
I feel like sumo is pointless if you're not competing. I did it, got some decent weight up, but I missed conventional. Dropped weight, went back to conventional, focused on pulling glutes and leg drive into it and it's been a fun road back.
I like to stick to 1 rep range for each movement in a workout. Makes it easier to keep track of things, and works well enough for all the rest of my body parts. Plus I don't have a ton of time to work out, so I like to make each set count.I think playing with paused reps and stuff will force me to be a lot more honest, as well as address the weaknesses holding back my bench. I am on a ghetto percentage based routine, but I think I have moved up too quickly on some lifts...
