Lately, Ive been getting the fullest stretch I can..for example on the bench press, the bar touches my chest gently, and I fle it back up. It seems when i do this, i get a much harder contraction at the top of the movement. Does anyone else experience that? Or should i not worry about that?
I have gotten excellent results since concentrating on using a full range of motion on just about every lift I do. Stretch pauses have been very benefial.
HB-you look pretty beefy in that pic-do you also believe that you cant target your upper chest with inclines or medial head with lateral raises? that all ya need is flat press and military press to fully develop?
Thanks for the compliment Rich. I don't know about targeting separate parts of the chest. There seems t be a lot of contriversy about that whole issue. I usualy do flat BB bench, decline BB bench, and inclines with dumbells.
I also do lateral raises occasionally but I must say that they really haven't been very effective in developing the medial head.
My delts respond well to flat bench, standing push presses and power cleans. My routine is not real complicated. I use a lot of power movemnts with an emphasis on explosiveness.
