    And as far as bragging? Hardly. But take it as you will. My size doing 80lb dumbbells for 10 reps on my 3rd set, not bad. My point was his weights are light, and if doesnt lift heavier and further challenge his pecs- he's not going to grow. I didn't know i was supposed to spoon feed him.
    My friends 140 and does 85 lbs db's incline o_0. This is going to be a fun thread .

    Lift the fücking weight from the floor, or leave it on the ground. The thoughts are supposed to be daunting. The pain is meant to be tormenting.

  6. sorry i got everyone all worked up this evening.

    OP: I'm a skinny *** who cant lift, ignore my comment to lift heavier.

    160lbs in 9th is average, at best. Your attitude comes off as though it is amazing that you can rep 80lbs on DBs and acting as though you know what it actually takes to grow when you're the size of a figure skater.

  8. Moving weight is good but there's bigger pictures @ play:

    1) Diet in order 90% of the time.
    2) Dedication. (Drive, determination)
    3) Form.


    If a person has those in order verses a person just hitting heavy weights, I'd put my money on the person moving lighter weights with the 3 points above totally in check.
    Just my .02.

    Like i said, not for me/my area. Not to fuel the fire but yea, i was very thin in highschool. I graduated at 125lbs. At my largest bulk i was 165lbs (a couple months ago) and my max barbell bench (flat) was 275. Ive been lifting for 2 years this winter, but seriously(ish) for the last 8 months.

    I have a very fast metabolism so packing on size is a slow process. I dont drink protein shakes and my diet is mediocre at best.

    Now you know me. Im a skinny weak bitch and dont know ****.

    Strong attitude. Are you sure you graduated High School? Because you act as though you're in middle school.

    There's nothing wrong with lifting more weight but its not about numbers its about effort. You're problem is not advising someone to lift for strength, rather your "holier than thou" attitude while doing it. This is not bbing.com and people expect to learn without being flamed. Not everyone has the same goals/genetics/background/experience and you would do well to learn that.

  11. As an alternative to lifting heavy on the bench press (barbell) try implementing time under tension tenchniques (with moderate weight) to encourage growth.

    Do 8 reps in each set (4). Do a 4 second negative on every rep and 1 second up (40 seconds per set). Also, you are only allowed a 40 second break betweens sets
    To make this exersise harder, on the negative, squeese your hands together like you are trying to do a fly (without moving your hands). This will create more tension. I guarantee you will feel this the next day.

    You can do the same thing on dumbells. Instead of squeezing inwards you go outwards. For example most people do a db press where at the top of the movement the DB is directly above their shoulder joint-which takes most of the tension and weight-you could technicly hold this position for a long time. So instead move the dumbells outwards 1-2 inches to form a W shape with your arms. This should be the new finishing point! This is much harder and removes a lot of tension from your shoulder joint and puts it in your chest. In addition it keeps the tension in your chest for the whole exersise. Combined with a 4010 tempo this will also make you really sore.

    Expect the weight your currently pushing to initally drop while doing this. i dropped nearly 1/3 when i first did it but was twice as sore. If you are bulking, on last set of each exersise, do a quadrouple drop set for 4-5 reps. This is hell. Get ready for growth.

    I hope that made sense.

    You've had the attitude since your first post. No one cares about your background.

  14. Im sorry that my meanie weanie post made you so butt hurt. Do you expect a ****ing formal apology dude? Im an ******* as we have established. Can we move on, are you capable of getting over it? Lets sit back and see. You can get the last word in here boss- go for it. Hell, neg me and send a PM telling me how upset you are if you want. Clearly we cant be internet friends and i need you to give me a good learning.

    Lol you're going to fit in perfectly here, along with a lot of the other banned members. You need to relax, obviously common courtesy and respect are things that you never learned growing up.

  16. TUT and mind muscle connection, keep it heavy but to the point to where u can control it...feel that tension in ur chest and ur chest will grow!!...just try that for a while to see if it works, it should def give u sum gains, and use dumbels cause u can target ur chest better this way...but yea, seems like lotta people on here try n override any actual advice given so listen if u want bro, if not then good luck.

    Haha always one of these guys that leak over from other forums. I went up in db and bb bench since my bench form is re-evaluated for future reference. Either way kdeome your 5'10 and 157 is NOTHING to be bragging up brah, your pathetic. Also I've only been training 8 months going from 142-171 at less then 7-8% bf TODAY. If you have any REAL training under your belt then you've wasted you time because if thats all you've gain then you have serious issues with your own routine or diet you need to wrk on, before you go about trying to smash on me for a weight I was at, many chest days ago.

  19. Dam didnt know this was a 4 page thread when I posted that last comment. Thanks for all the advice brahs, half of this thread I was loling at but good information in here.

  20. Oh man. This thread was on fire!!! Haha.

  21. Yes I love doing long negatives. It has helped me so much on my chest too. I'll do 1 second poss and 2-3 second negative and a longer negative on the last rep. Really gives you a huge burn and tear

  22. It's not how much weight you move, it's how you move it.
