I do a lot of decline pressing I love it.

I think I'm going to add it in as supplemental work on bench/incline bench days, like a couple sets of decline db bench and see how it goes.

So for bench day, for example, was gonna do:
3x5 Bench
4x8 Incline DB
3x5 Decline DB

or something like that. Sound good or should I just do bench then decline db, given that I have another day where I do incline bb then flat db?

That's like a bodybuilding day but with powerlifting reps / sets. UP that volume. 4 x 12.

Well it's just SPBR. Suppose I could do higher volume decline work, like 4x8 or something. Just not sure if that's too much to do all three lifts concurrently. I suck at designing progs which is why I always stick to the same thing.

Ah, gotcha. Well if it's a program and it's worked then stick with it. I don't think it's too much to do concurrently. I'd do decline at the end like you have it and up the volume, don't need to focus on weight week after week on decline, mostly focus on pump.

Decline bench really helped me nail the technique for flat bench.

Well I'm doing decline db bench on a fucking decline ab thing which is annoying but I guess not uncommon based on how many other people I've seen doing it. I felt it more in my shoulder muscles than anything. Might just need to weight up, idk.

If you have a free weight flat bench just stick some 45's under one end. I prefer slight incline/declines personally but even if you don't id think it would be better than a decline sit up thing.

I havent done decline in years. IDK, just felt so pointless. My technique sucked (a lot more) back then though.

Hit a 480lb squat. What should I aim for as a third attempt based on that?

Decline Bench (with barbell) is great for learning good PL technique. Don't make the angle too steep though. One plate under under one side of the bench will be enough.
Make sure to still arch a bit and don't flare elbows too much. Bar "should" hit somewhere from lower pecs to upper abs depending on technique and how you are built.
And yes, there are def less harsh on the shoulder than flat or incline bench due to the less ROM (if you do them right).

@Aidan K
I'd say 495-500 tops. You grinded a bit in the middle so there doesn't seem to be that much left.

Got an interview for a paid summer internship on Monday. I feel like I'm going to be older than the interviewer, and if I get it people won't think I'm an intern....

My right shoulder's really aching. Feels like DOMS deep inside of it. Also my right pec has super-DOMS right at the insertion. It felt that way when I was between sets yesterday, too, though it didn't ache at all when I was actually lifting. Either I worked out some small muscles that I haven't in a really long time when I was doing decline or something weird happened.
post #52109 of 57263
I would assume the former.
