View Full Version : Weight feeling heavier on the eccentric?

12-05-2012, 12:16 PM
For some reason, when I bench press, the weight feels heavier on the eccentric phase (down phase), than on the concentric phase? It's like my body is very cautious of controlling the weight. I'm lowering the weight extremely slow, but it almost feels like my stabilizers are barely able to stabilize the loads? Could this be due to a weak upper back or should I just practice heavy eccentrics as a tool?
