    whats your philosophy on bench pressing, do you believe in coming all the way down till you touch your chest or till your elbows are parallel with the torso (arms form a 90 degree angle)? I try to compare my range of motion to all these guys i see on the videos but these guys are gigantic and their chest's are thick as hell haha, where as i am skinny and have long arms so would coming all the way down put to much stress on the shoulder capsule. I think jose raymond actually said in a video that he would compare himself to kevin english but than he realized kevin was coming down all the way but his arms still formed a 90 degree angle since his chest is huge and his arms are relatively short
    thanks for your time
    A article Eric wrote some time ago. Hope it helps. I do know Eric stresses the stretch and contractions of each exercise.

          so i did a power workout for my back yesterday


          started with deadlifts done to just above knee level( i either do full deadlifts or this type depending on my split that week and how close my leg day falls).
          I really concentrated on a slow negative and exploding the weight up. After two warm up sets, I did four working sets and surprised myself with the poundage I was able to pull

          I was going to do weithed pullups next but could not find the weight belt so I ended up doing wide grip pull downs for 3 heavy working sets of 4-6 reps again really concentrating on the slow negative and exploding the weight down but not cheating.

          next I did kneeling dumbbell rows for 3 sets, same protocol

          lastly did shrugs for 3 sets

          a couple questions and observations:

          I normally do a lot of volume, approx 20 sets of reps in the 8-12 range. My back muscles are a little sore today but not to bad but they are deff tired. I do not believe there is a direct correlation between muscles soreness and hypertrophy but mentally it is always nice to feel that crazy soreness. Is this decrased soreness due to not really making the lactic acid yesterday and should I be worried about it??

          My break time between sets was only about 3 minutes because I felt ready to go at this point. Is this ok??

          thanks for your time, I am really excited to see how this routine works for me
          While I like to be sore as well, there is not definitive physiological necessity that you be sore in order to grow. However, there IS a need to be able to properly recover (both the muscles and CNS) from every workout to grow.

          Rest between sets is pretty individual so 3 min may be perfect for you.

            question for bodyfx2. I know this isn't training related BUT I have a supp question and feel as though you are pretty knowledgable in that area as well.
            I work in EMS on 24 hr shifts so alot of times we get very little sleep. On my off days I wake up and pop a fatburner (currently dieting) which is the new ECA product called roxylean about an hour before I go to the gym. I then have a pro/oat shake. Before I head out to the gym I take a scoop of Jack3d, sometimes a scoop and a half. When I get to the gym I down 2 scoop of Xtend before I train, which I'm now wondering if you recommend only 1? Anyway, here are the ingredients to jack3d...

            View Specific Product Details:

            250 Grams Lemon Lime
            Serving Size1Scoop(5.55grams)
            Servings Per Container:45
            Amount Per Serving % Daily Value*
            Proprietary Blend 4145mg *
            (Arginine Alpha-Ketoglutarate, Creatine Monohydrate, Beta Alanine, Caffeine, 1,3-Dimethylamylamine (Geranium [Stem], Shizandrol A)
            * Daily Value not established
            Other Ingredients:
            Citric Acid, Natural Lemon-Lime Flavor, Acesulfame-K, Sucralose, Vegetable Stearate, Silicon Dioxide, Chlorophyll (For Coloring).
            This product is produced in a facility that processes milk and soy ingredients
            Black Box Warning:
            This Product Produces An Intense Sensation Of Drive, Focus, Energy, Motivation & Awareness. In Addition, It Allows For Rapid Increases In Strength, Speed, Power & Endurance. Therefore, Extreme Caution Must Be Exercised & Should Not Be Used By Novice Athletes.
            Use With Caution Under Strict Dosing Protocols.
            Directions For USPlabs Jack3d: Stir 3 Ultra-Concentrated scoops with 4-8 ounces of cold water and consume 30-45 minutes before beginning activity. Due to extreme potency, it's highly recommended to assess tolerance by using a 1.5 scoop serving before consuming full dose, especially if you are sensitive to stimulants. Some individuals may find 1, 1.5 or 2 scoops per serving is the ideal dose for workout domination. DO NOT EXCEED 3 SCOOPS IN ANY 24 HOUR PERIOD

            now, recently, I got a free bottle of this supplement called hypertrop x..

            Hyper Trop-X Supplement Facts
            Serving Size: Capsules
            Servings per Container: 30

            Hyper Trop-X Directions:
            As a dietary supplement, take 4 capsules 30 minutes before workout.

            Question, I probably shouldn't take this with the shit I'm already taking, correct? If yes, then when the jack3d runs out and I do decide to take it, should I NOT take the xtend prior to training due to the leucine in the hypertropx product? Thanx
            Wow, you take Roxy Lean AND Jack3D not that far after!? That is a lot of stims!

            As for the Hyper Trop, I would wait until you are done with Jack3D to begin using it. I would still take the X-Tend because I believe you need all 3 BCAA's and not ONLY leucine for the best anabolic effect.

              thanks for your time

              I feel you should use as complete a range of motion as possible on every exercise, including the bench press. However, if going beyond a certain point actually HURTS your shoulders then do not push that far. If you make sure your back is arched, your shoulders and down and your rib cage is high you should still get a nice pec stretch at 90 degrees.

                    That is so tough to say because so many people have different theories. I would just go to a basic site on nutrition to learn the ins and outs and some of the science. Then check out some threads on the boards to see different ways of putting together diets.

                            Here you go:

                            The Omega-3 in Krill oil is better absorbed into your body than the Omega-3 from regular fish oil. That’s a fact. There are several published scientific papers that prove it.
                            So Krill Oil is definitely better...at east NKO Krill Oil is! NKO stands for Neptune Krill Oil. NKO Krill Oil is the only one with published clinical evidence of improved absorption and bioavailability.

                              In this thread I talk about MY training methods...PRRS and FDFS. However, GVT is also an awesome training method, and one that I actually will occasionally incorporate into my SHOCK weeks during PRRS.

                              • Eric, do you suggest pyramiding up in weight or using the same maximum weight for your 1-3 working sets? and if you dont mind could you explain why you feel one is more optimal than the other?
