True, but it's also the fact that strength sports focus on specific movements. If you're a PLer you squat-bench-dead. You have to, that's the sport. If you took one of those movements out of your training for a prolonged period it wouldn't be a great idea.

If you're a bber then you can completely ignore those movements or only do variations that train only a specific portion of that movement and there is no legality involved, if a bber with ridiculous quads doesn't hit parallel on his squats it doesn't matter at all. If a PLer doesn't then his lift doesn't count. A bber never has to squat at all and can still build some thick legs.

This is a pretty true statement. Though I don't think it "doesn't mean anything", maybe it doesn't necessarily mean anything. I think it means you are getting used to the stress and you're no longer getting (as) sore.  I don't think it means the exercise and/or set/rep scheme is useless or even less effective. Soreness and progress are not mutually exclusive, they are also not mutually restricted.

I wasn't talking about that though!

 

My point is that the soreness is good thing might be true, but it's so finnicky as a metric that it really shouldn't be used to gauge much because its absence is meaningless.

 

The low sensitivity gives it pretty poor utility. 

 

As a side note, I love cable flyes. I feel them in my pecs so much more than db bench. I'm thinking of starting with them to do a pre-exhaust. That's usually how that part works, right?

Let's forget about it.

If you pre-exhaust your pecs before DB bench press, your triceps will have to work harder during that DB bench press. 

The pecs are already fatigued so more work is transferred to the triceps and perhaps front delts.

 

During my hypertrophy phase this summer I did a lot of bench presses superseted with flyes. Pretty much same idea.

The reason from my PL perspective was that I needed learn how to engage my triceps more when I did bench press (higher tricep involvement usually indicates good bench press technique).

So better to keep doing them at the end to wear out the pecs instead? That's what I've been doing so far.

I don't know tbh, but theoretically maybe a yes.

It could be smart to change up things though to see how you respond to that.

Fuck didn't hit any PRs while testing today. Just hit my estimated 1RMs.
post #48521 of 57260
Nvm spoke too soon. Retried my bench and hit 10lb PR and decided to try DL and hit a 28lb PR.
post #48522 of 57260

Thats nice PRs.

 

From what I've heard and read, the real gains from Sheiko are long in the long term. 

The system of the programs are meant to be ran in succession since they build upon each other, such as slowly increasing volume, intensity, and tougher/more complex variations of the lifts.

I think the people who commit to them and just run them as they should (with individual adjustments of course) are going to get continuous PRs.

Just talked to a different surgeon that i work with. Getting a new spine MRI. Going to see if any residual issues can be explained, but he says i should have zero limitations now in the gym or otherwise.
