Hey this isn't D, but I am using his account.
Anyway I was just wondering if any of you all ramp you back work or any other compound other than the big 3.
I normally ramp my bench with a 12x105, 8x210, 8x225, 6x240,
I was wondering if it would be at all beneficial to ramp my back work (or anything else (BOrows) similiarly.
I guess if I can do more weight it would be worth it...but if not it isn't!?!?!?!? I dunno
Nobody has all the answers. Nobody can experience everything. Nobody knows everything.
Unless you are a Nobody...Ask, Read and Learn
If you look at the other exercises as "supplemental exercises" (a powerlifter would, a BBer might not), then you need to keep that they are "supplements" in mind. Progress is, of course, important, and you need to work them hard, but if they are taking away from the most important exercises, or if they are not weaknesses, your efforts could probably be spent better somewhere else.
A child does not learn to squat from the top down. In other words, he does not suddenly make a conscious decision one day to squat. Actually, he is squatting one day and make the conscious decision to stand. Squatting precedes standing in the developmental sequence. This is the way a child's brain learns to use the body as the child develops movement patterns. Therefore, a child is probably crawling, rocks back into a squatting position with the back completely relaxed and the hips completely flexed, and stands when he has enough hip strength. This approach makes a lot of sense and can be applied to relearning the deep squat movement if it is lost. -Gray Cook
