    I dont incline bb press anymore, what was he having you do? BBing or PLing? Nice man. Ive been on a good streak lately.

    It was supplemental work after close grip incline pin press working up to 6RM (I could also do some tate presses, but I can't right now because of my shoulder). Basically whereas you normally set the bench up at an incline and bench in a line perpendicular to the floor, he had me benching perpendicular to my chest. Lol. Only worked up to around 90lbs and had to stop at that weight, whereas last time I hit 95s for 8 reps a set.

    That sounds rough, id never do that personally haha

  4. I didn't incline BB for years, but have implemented CG incline lately and have been making great raw strength gains over the past 6 weeks. The groove take a bit to find, but it hammers the entire chest, delts, and triceps.

    Only reason I dont do it is bc my partner cant incline bb press at all. So we usually stick to lifts we can both do. I may have to stray from it and try it out. Rough on the AC joints?

    Is that bc shoulder issues?

    I ask bc BB incline has been the one move that no matter how good my shoulder feels it doesn't feel good. Bad type of soreness. DB pressing is fine though. I could never zone in on exactly why this is.

    Disclaimer: haven't tried incline BB in a couple years so possible it could be different now.

  8. I was the opposite of you all. I could only ever comfortably do bb incline for a while and couldn't touch db incline. With all the work I've been doing the last month on loosening my pec minor/anterior delt and strengthening middle/lower traps etc I've been able to go back to doing db inclines fairly well.

  15. Is that a PR for you on pulls?

    No its a matched PR atm. I was gonna keep going and throw the straps up but after the skin went I decided to stop there. Btw Im gonna be picking up another bottle of erase for my during bloods. Alot of positive changes have been happening and want to give it some more time.

  20. Last week was a deload week. The week before I hit a 425 to a 1 board in my f6

    1/7/12-ME Upper
    chins

    Strappless Kroc Rows w/ Fat Gripz
    75x20,20
    7 Band Pullapart Variations w/ Mini Band
    2 sets of 10 each way
    Notes: My bottom end is starting to come up. My lockout was the hard part of the floor press today with the fat gripz. We opted for this to give our joints some rest and underload some. My oh press and incline press strength is coming along nicely. Those are both lifts I struggle with. Fat gripz kroc rows tore up my fingers but I pull with a hook grip so i need the work.

    Notes: Got my new metal king sumo finally. It fits great at a 52. This suit is night and day from pulling my ace. Its like a sling shot. the bar whips like crazy at 315 and 365. and even has some whip at 450.

  22. How wide is your stance on sumo? I've found that Ace allows me to maintain solid leverage even at a collar-to-collar stance.

    My shins are lined up with the rings on a deadlift bar, well slight wider then that. I have not gone collar-to-collar yet. May have to try it soon.

    My stance is about that width while I'm raw, but I slowly move my stance out as I work up in weight. The Ace is a really stiff suit and getting to the bar is 80% of the battle.

    Ill agree it is hard to get to the bar. The metal king is no easier actually. But it has more "pop" off the bottom.
