I start benching 225 (with spotter) and he comes up to me after and says "man, you shouldn't touch your chest when you do that, its bad for your rotator cuff, you should never go lower than 90 degrees" I then watch him do the 225, he lowers the bar literally 3 inches and pushes out 10. Is this guy onto something with the whole shoulder problem thing, or is he just a noob who thinks he knows what he's talking about?
Ideally you should go full rom, some peeps can't for whatever reason. You can still go full rom and avoid shoulder problems by tucking your elbows instead of flaring them out which is what he is probably doing.

You should point your feet in a natural position when squating..
I dont know if this trick carries over but when I set up my wakeboard bindings what I did is jumped up in the air and then the way my feet were pointing when I landed is the angle my bindings were set at.
I'm guessing it would carry over since the reason for doing this is so you dont torque your knees under a heavy load (landing a jump or in this case pressing a lot of weigh)

penner's got it right. to figure out your natural squatting position, do some jump squats a few times and when you land, that's the position you should squat in. should be about shoulder width and toes pointed out a little bit. just make sure your knees follow the direction of your toes when you squat down.

It's not the steroids that makes the champion but it's hard training .. dedication, the diet and sacrifice and genetics that person has.. what makes the champion.

4 months?! in total?!


seriously, your muscles are barely starting to dense up. give it a year and they will be at their 'benchmark' where they are done hardening up and start to grow.

Hello from Thailand

Checking in while wifey tries on clothes.

There is literally no time to work out here, and I'm definitely not getting 200g of protein per day. Luckily I'm just starting, so I don't have to worry too much about falling behind.

RRxstar: This ones for you. I started trying a similar workout that you have been doing. Basically following a pushing movement with a pulling movement. From what i'm reading you basically hit the gym daily am I right?

Yesterday I did Flat bench, seated rows, overhead tricep press, DB flyes followed by DB rows.

Today my triceps are quite sore, and I planning on working my shoulders (Meaning shoulder press would be my #1 exercise). Now they are going to suffer as my triceps have no recouperated. How do you get around this? No direct arm work?

i find shoulders works your tris less than bench since youre overall moving less weight so i do shoulders on day 1. chest on day 2. i dont do any specific tri exercises until day 3. my tris are usually pretty sore the day after day 3 so i take day 4 off from any lifting because i wouldnt get any benefit from it. then day 5 i do more pushing again.



so the 3 suggestions i would have for you would be to either switch day 1 and 2, or switch day 2 and 3, or do your tri press on leg day.
