    Exactly!!

    I'm a bouncer, but a little dude, but get called out here and there.....I get asked all the time "How much you bench *****" and the funny part is I don't tell them, but they still tell me what they do....

    So I will normally let them run their mouth, then when they try something I carry em outside, set them on the ground and walk back inside.


  2. Just once. Mondays of course. The gym I used to go to only had 2 flat benches, one pec deck, and one set of cross over cables. No way in hell you could get a chest workout in on a Monday unless it was 4AM.

  3. Two times a week one day I go hard and heavy and 3-4 days later I have a light day to focus more on stabilizing muscles. it seems to work for me

  4. 2 a week Tuesday and Friday

  5. 1-2 times a week

  6. I usually do 2x a week because the gym at my work only has dumbells so I do flat db and incline db on tuesdays then on fridays I do flat bench and pec deck flys. Since i'm only doing 2 exercises each session i don't need as much recovery.

  7. Chest 3 times a week for me, I am doing a 5x5. I do squats 3 times a week as well.

  8. 3 times a week.

    5X5 BB Flat Monday
    5X5 BB Incline Wednesday
    5x5 BB Flat Friday

    Obviously 3x/wk works for you or you wouldn't be doing it; but isn't 3x a week overtraining or does it have to do with the lower reps allowing the increased frequency? I am interested in trying that, but want to know the science behind it first.

    Thanks!

  10. i dont think im overtraining it, you progressively work up to your max five, so say i wanted to work up to 225, i would go 185, 195, 205, 215, 225. also that middle day i am doing incline so its switching it up in a small way. its called madcows or bill stars 5X5 look it up i couldnt post the link because i dont hvae 50 posts.

  11. referring to above every week you increase your max five by 2.5 lbs or since my gym doesn't have that small of weights i increase my max five by 5 lbs every 2 weeks.

  12. Twice a week. One day heavy and one day light (high rep) when doing another body part heavy.

  13. nice a little power/hypertrophy going on.

  14. I do chest 4x a week. 100 lb dumbbells. Im guessing this is too much, but I use to be in football and was a heavy powerlifter so im thinking the way I workout is a little off. because I dont powerlift anymore. After reading this thread though im definately going to cut back significantly.

  15. 2x a week
    Monday and Friday
    12 sets of 8-10 monday
    9 sets of 10-12 friday
    Composed entirely of dumbell/cable exercises.

    Has been great for hypertrophy, but i would say low to moderate strength gains (though i havent benched in ages, so i dont really know how to compare it to how strong i was previously). Then again, i have a strange routine, but i like it and it works for me. Been putting on more mass (but less strength) than i had been with the Starr 5x5.

  16. twice a week,
    Incline bench
    incline db bench
    inlcine flyes
    dips
    pullovers
    sub reg bench for incline db bench as well
    Shoulder injuries caused alot of problems, just trying to catch up on upper chest area

  17. I have my 4 day split,

    Mon: Shoulders Bicepts
    Tues: Back Tricepts
    Thurs: Chest Abs
    Fri: Legs

    Cardio on off days

  18. I hit my chest twice a week , giving 2 days rest. First workout I go with barbell exercises combined with machine flys. Second workout is all dumbells to include flys. Never more than 4 sets and 6-10 reps per. I've always had good luck with it. I usually go heavy every other week, the rest of the time I keep the weight manageable and stick to form.

  19. I do chest 3 times a week.... Part of a full body workout... 4 sets 10 reps each day.. Tue-Flat BB bench press...Thu-Incline DB press.. Sat-Cable flys..... Works very well for me.

  20. so 6 x a week bench curls is not how to get big? lol jk

    i only work it once a week

  21. 6 exercises, 24 sets and 216 reps per week

    twice a week

  22. I do 3 sets of 12's with 225lbs for flat bench.
    Decline bench 3 sets of 12's with 80lbs dumbbells
    Incline bench 3 sets of 12's with starting with 60lbs and working up to 80lbs
    then i do cable flys... with 35lbs on each side... also 3 sets of 12's, squeezing and holding for about 3 seconds with each rep....

    This guy who was at the gym with me basically 3 times a week, but not a friend, was having a bad day I guess, and was runnin his mouth to everyone, one day. He was a big dude, prolly 6'2" and 240-250, with a huge bench, in the 400's. When he started aiming at me, I let it slide like 3 times, and thoen gave up. We
    went out to the parking lot and I dropped him with a jab to the chin and a power to the nose, laid him out in the middle of the lot, with mad people around cheerin cause he was being such a prick. Took 10 sec. Now I'm only 5'11" @ 190. It took him three weeks of working out with me 3 times a week still, to come up and apologize. Then he finished by asking me, "how are you so fast?". Hilarious. But I know how you feel.

  24. Yea u can be strong as hell and still not know how to fight. Anyhow, I work chest once a week. I just feel more fresh when I give my chest a week to rest.

  25. Once a week, 2-4 sets TOTAL after warm up.
    When you leave this world, will it be a better place because you were here?
