    If its not there we don't force it, that being said we've trained these movements all year. Like throwing mechanics, can something go off sure but its been repetition all year long. Its not like we are flat benching 2 weeks out after not having done it all year. I dont really feel a need to respond to negativity here but more so encouraging those to not abandon what got you to where you are.

    Awesome video. Dallas uses better control than most and seems to get the most out of every rep

    For the record, since when did saying "Not sure if that's a good idea; looks great though", constitute "negativity"? I agree 100% with the training philosophy Matt, but some of this politically correct bullshit needs to come to an end. There are OBVIOUS slags on people/pros, and then there is legit constructive feedback/conversation/discussion. It would benefit the entire UNIVERSE, if people could learn on discerning the difference between the two. Not every person who questions something is being "negative" or "hating", and not everybody praising something is "swallowing balls" or "riding dick".

    Sometimes, evaluating the actual STATEMENT, rather than the "motivation behind the statement", might just work best.

    Dear other IFBB Pro's,

    As you can see from 0:25-0:30 this was filmed with someones cellphone. You do not need a camera crew to film your workout and there is probably 100 people in your gym that would be willing to film said workout for you.

    Yours Truly,

    This was all the training? 3 sets, or there were more exercises / sets.

    Matt it's not negativity if someone gave you a compliment and expressed his concern over doing an exercise that has ended a billion careers in any sport imaginable. Why do you and Dallas always have to be like this on the internet lol, if people don't blow smoke up the ass every time you or Dallas post something it's not negativity.

    Easy folks. You guys act like he was 1 rep maxing on bench just to impress some girls 3 days before a show.

    It's funny, cuz when big Ron was maxing doubles, singles and bouncing crazy ass weight around right before the O all "just for the camera", everyone goes nuts and busts nuts over it. Never once did anyone "critique" or offer their "suggestions" they learned from their long career of lifting on the weekends.

    I want to thank team MD, Matt & Dallas for all the transparency and content leading up to the Chicago Wings of Strength show. I wouldn't think training with that kind of intensity this close to a show is good idea but I leave it to the pro's to do what they want it's their livelihood on the line not mine or the fans. It makes me think of Dorian and how he says his one regret is pushing it too much balls to the wall getting close to the Olympia's back then. He said it would have prolonged his career and possibly prevented some injuries from happening.

    Absolutely agree, we all have to learn our own bodies and what works best. If Dorian didn't lift as hard right up to the O, I'm sure he would have prolonged his career, but who knows, maybe he wouldn't have as many Sandows?
