  7. If it hurts on the side raises just stop this time. You might even try the side raise machine so the leverage is better making it easier on the connective tissue.

    Last session I did the side raises on machine and they didn't bother me at all. Will do this again like you are suggesting.

    Thanks Snaggy McSnaggerton.
    Actually felt good with the heavy pressing today. Pumps were painful. Foam rolled my shoulders between sets to help keep them loose though.

    They are awesome, but, I have just learned something new with the alternating. Sometimes it's hard to think outside of the box, I s'pose.

  25. How you close grip 285 I will never know. My body doesn't work like that. Close grip is like 40% of max for reps. You're not human.

    Mine is the same, which is why I only do either high or low.

  30. I actually feel stronger with a close grip then wide. The wider my grip is the weaker I feel especially in the shoulder region hence why I bench with my hands just inside the bar rings on regular bench. The numbers are actually not far off from each other.

  33. No not small, I have had similar experiences, I am very proficient at close grip bench and not so much on regular. I can lift more with bench but the difference is much less than I would have thought it should be.

  34. I have a stupid huge chest though, way over powers my tris, so to me it's not huge... If are you benching narrow just as well as wide it means your tris are very strong. I wasn't trying to insult you but just making an observation. I bet if you hit your pecs a little more and got used to a wider grip, you would see bench numbers skyrocket in several months. Either way just keep doing what you do man.

  35. Might be do to shoulder injuries also...the wider you go the more the shoulders seem to get involved. I do find as I have focused more on keeping the chest more involved I can lessen the shoulder strain. I am going very wide on the smith with lighter weight to try and deal with this issue.

  36. I stay away from the wider grip mostly for comfort and safety sake. I seem to always be dealing with some type of shoulder pain despite tweaks in form when going wider on barbell. Dumbbells are fine but bb is a pain in the titts.
