Hi again guys. I've been benching since i started training, which is about 7 months ago now, and the last 3 months i started doing something i think is pretty nice, but ppl have all sorts of different opinions on it so I wanted ur pro decision. I basically start on 60 kilos (which is my maximum on a free bench atm, sadly) and do as many reps as i can before i collapse, i then take away 5 kilos and again I do as many reps as i can before i collapse, all the way down to just the bar. Is there any better way?
Also, as I don't rly speak english I just learned from reading stickies etc what squats and deadlifts are, and i realized Im not doing them. Some ppl claim u can work out only doing benchpress, squats and deadlifts, is this true? And also: What musclegroups do theese 3 exercises train? Could I combine theese 3 with an xtra biceps and triceps exercise? Cause nowadays my workout takes like 2-3 hours cause of lots of exercises, which is pretty long.
(If any of this is in the sticky I apologize, I looked but didnt find it, guess some of this is very given to u.) Thanks!
What your describing is a drop-set, thats if you keep going without rest between drops. If you are, drop sets can be very beneficial. I like to do them anytime I feel as though I'm getting into a plateau.
allright, could deadlifts, squats, bench and freeweights on triceps and biceps cover all the muscles i need? im thinking maybe i wont get any muscles in the neck area for instance
Try looking at the WBB1 weightlifting routine on this site... it will show you where to start.
