tfw you haven't lifted heavy in months but you're more aesthetic than you've ever been.

I've been running and playing soccer a lot more. My gym routine is all bodyweight for upper body+isolation machines for lower body. Eating at a slight defecit, periodic carb-ups from indulgent days = somehow totally thick and joocy.

Facial aesthetics def took a huge decline. But arms are def bigger and strength is up. Hoping my cut = old aesthetics + big arms. I def wanna get back into cycling too.

taking a week off of running hurts pretty good. had an apathy stretch where i did a total of 5km in two weeks and then jumped right back into it with 14x400m sprints tonight, which turned out to be 12km with warmup and cooldown. feels good to be back in it again, race is in less than a month.

fuji you should have at least given yourself a month lol

Riding my bike home from work 2 am Tuesday morning, someone hit and ran me in their car.

Broken left clavicle , broken left orbital bone, going in for surgery at noon today.

Giving me max dosages of morphine right now but I'm still in so much pain.

This really fucking sucks.

Sorry to hear that. I hope you will recover soon.

@MarkI

Wow man, that really sucks.

Non self-induced injuries scare me the most. I hope you recover fast and well and that you won't be in pain for much longer.

What's up rhet, been a while.

Took a few months off training but been back for 6 months or so. Strongest I've ever been at the moment just hit a 405 deadlift, and bench is probably 205 1rm. 188lbs bw at 6'2. Not impressive but my bench was always terrible if anyone remembers, in fact I stopped training it for well over a year in favour of dumbbells.

Looking for some advice on training bench mostly for strength. If i bench twice a week, what would be a good set / rep scheme? I've been doing 3 x 3 with about 85% 1rm one day but I think trying to do that twice a week and add weight is too much. I'm thinking a second day at like 5 x 5 with 70% and focus on super strict form and speed so basically one day to progress and one to grease the groove.
post #46363 of 49343

Nice to have you back.

 

For the bench, I'd do all reps paused if you don't already. 

Your plan with 3x3@85% and 5x5@70% sounds good, but consider increasing your current pressing volume through more accessory movements. 

Accessory movements that are closer to the main lift will also have a higher grade of carryover. Ex: Bench press with 2sec pause on pins at chest level will have a higher carryover to your regular bench press than incline dumbbell bench press. So, chose a varity of accessory movements, both specific and non-specific, that target different muscles that work in the bench press (chest, triceps, shoulders), different ROM and do these for slightly higher volume than your main work with the regular bench press.

 

Examples of accessory movements for the bench press that complement each other:

- Pin Press: specific, CNS-intensive, target bottom end ROM, lower reps 3-5

- Incline Barbell Bench Press: Specific, target shoulders and triceps, medium reps 3-8

- Decline Bench Press: Specific, target chest, medium reps 3-5

- CGBP: Specific, target the triceps, lower reps 3-8

- OHP: somewhat specific, target shoulders and triceps, medium reps 3-8

- Dumbbell Bench: somewhat specific, target shoulders and chest, higher reps 6-10

- DB flyes: Non-specific, target chest, higher reps 6-10

- Dips: Non-specific, target chest, shoulders and triceps, higher reps 6-10

- Tricep Pushdown: Non-specific, target triceps, higher reps 8-20+

- Lying Tricep Extensions behind the head: Non-specific, target triceps, higher reps 8-12

 

That has worked well for me.

Also, don't neglect work for the back, both the rear delts and lats. I like face pulls, band pull aparts and reverse DB flyes for the rear delts. For the lats I do Bench Rows (lying face down on a bench, row a barbell from underneath up until it hits the bench) and regular Bent Over Rows. The reason I do specifically those are that they mirror the bench press in ROM, the bar and grip. I think a Bench Row with the same grip width will carry over more to your Bench Press than DB rows.
