  • Have you ever considered that your shouldere strains were from taking to long between pressing sets, and letting the shoulder cool down, and "seize"

      I thought about that somewhat. I think it has more to do with the overuse of my shoulders. Super high volume, very heavy and high rep for many years.

      Most likely a combination of everything. The very wide grip while benching probably contributes too

Then only a few minutes between the following 315 sets. Shoulder is still strained and limiting my volume. The first three sets were record attempts, and then the rest was just to tear it up some more. All my sets were off though since my bests are 225x39,275x21,315x12 for full reps.

        Also been missing meals and was light today.

        In my past high volume heavy routines , my chest session would be up to seven hours. Rest between sets could be very long during the bench portion and was atleast 14 sets just on the bench alone. Then lots of machine work.

        It makes sense why you have so much power in the heavy sets.

        • Good maintenance work going on. While a diet down would really show off your muscles well, you'd be pissed at the strength loss. I've never dealt with that aspect of diet-down well at all even though I know what the root cause of the strength loss is. KILL THAT SHIT!!

              Appreciate that shit

              Ive always taken as much rest as I feel I need, until the next set calls me. Of course many days when my mind isnt into training, like this period in my life, no set is calling me, but still I wait til my body atleast feels ready, if not my mind.

              I used to take 15-30 minute rests between sets when deadlifting on my very high volume back routines.

              Mainly I take the long rests on my target sets. The ones that Im trying to hit PR's on. Otherwise it doesnt matter too much, since the muscle is getting torn to failure each set anyway

                Thanks!

                Yes, thats my problem. I prefer to be as massive as I can get first and also like to have the strength to back it up. Dieting would be the last thing on my mind. For me it comes natural from the anxiety of life and the insanity of shit. I end up missing meals and burning massive calories when I am in that mode, and this occurs often enough to lean me out some.

                Thats why Im leaner lately but still have most of my muscle mass. Just the result of stress.

                KILL IT!!

                  Ive also done no rest between sets routines. I feel ive gotten the best growth training with longer rests and heavier weights for more reps. I still use some dropsets though.

                  2 hours is like a few warm up sets for me usually. Lately though I havent been in the gym too long. Several hours but not like before. Im just trying to maintain on a more minimal volume and eat what I can to stay in the low 200's atleast.

                  Eventually the time will come for me to get into growth mode again.

                            Did the tennis ball trick help you at all?

                            And you mentioned in HI's journal about awkward starts to HS presses. Try wedging a 2.5 lb db between the arm and stopper pad, they fall out once you start the rep, but gives you a nice liftoff effect.

                              Sounds good. Might have to try that.

                              The tennis ball seemed to loosen the area a little. Hard to tell though.
