You don't have to do them as circuits. In fact, I almost never do, unless the exercises are close together. Or I can take a pair of DB's over to the cable machine, etc.

It's not as bad as you'd think, and the fact that you can adapt it if circuits are impossible is a good thing.

also anyone try iso mass xtreme gainer???
have u ever tried bench press from pins, look it up on you tube, i do that usually every 2nd chest workout, it helps with lock out and getting it up quicker from the bottom ( sticking point )

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.

Anything that conflicts with the facts in your first link is wrong.

you need to see where you tend to get stuck when you bench. find your weakness and attack it.

if you're weak at lock out, i found rolling db tri ext., and BB floor press has helped my tricep strength.

Its funny how before when I would stuff my face with anything my parents were always going "you should really watch what you eat!"

Now that my diet's pretty clean and I wont eat any bad carbs unless I absolutely HAVE to, they say "you never eat anything anymore!"
