    eh.
    I am not interested enough to look at the case studies but it would be interesting to see what types of people they were using in them.
    I follow PLing a little bit and not many use these techniques at all. Not saying it's not valid, just saying.
    The big Russian that just took the record from Spoto not long ago posted a video of 600+ for reps. Didn't fail or come even close really. His comment under the video was along the lines of "that was the most weight/reps he did in training prior to breaking the record." In other words he wouldn't even KNOW what his sticking point was!
    Drop the weight, add volume, grease the groove.

    never thought about sticking points at bench press. i did think about LIMITING the weight used for bench press because its potentially dangerous to use too much weight. i heard that flex wheeler never went above 405 pounds because he was afraid of injury.

    Ahhh...the bench press. Where guys go to max out and stroke their ego. Meanwhile I'll be dumbbell pressing my way to growth over here in the corner.
