Bench press, low rows, pull ups
Yep that's my normal and I do some dumbbell work like flys etc. what's your opinion on incline bench and such to get the whole chest?
After deadlifting, where do you guys feel it the next day?
Just leaving my new gym. It's a shame the nastiest greasiest people are the ones that don't wipe the equipment off. But from my second night back at a gym vs working out at home I can tell a big difference in how much work I feel like I get in.
Just got to take a second to brag about my 365# back squat PR today. Looking forward to big number on the rest of my lifts this week.
Thanks, fearless leader.
Nice work @Fox#8051 !
@Deleted User Thanks, brother. Shooting for a 500# deadlift on the 26th. Pick up that yule log.
@JesseJames Incline is pretty vital in getting that rounded strong chest look as well as being able to put up bigger numbers on a flat bench.
@GDoctor this is what I'm told but I tried to find a good routine for doing this but there is so much bs out there I was hoping to find a good one from someone with real experience.
I try to do both flat and incline presses with dumbbells 8-12 reps for 3 sets on each exercise. It has made my bench press numbers better and aesthetically improved my chest. Would recommend.
How much of an incline do you use?
One guy I worked out with did incline flat and decline. He had a huge chest to.
Incline and decline pushups are also a good way to accomplish the same thing, though they work in reverse. Incline push ups (feet on the floor and hands on the bench) work the same muscles as decline bench press, and decline push ups (feet on the bench and hands on the floor) work the same muscles as incline bench press.
Guys, I'm struggling to get through my workout and need some motivation!
u tryna be big or wat my dude
(Free testosterone levels intensify)
arms lookin thicc
Still gotta do some bent over bicep curls and incline curls...
Done! Arms are fokkin juicy!
@GDoctor glad I'm not the only one who goes to planet fitness lol.
It's not bad, but I still prefer my college's gym.
I'm in a small town. Had a great gym that was 24 hours all the free weights and machines anyone could want. Not much riff raft, never busy and no spin classes or any of that bs. Then planet fitness came to town and put them out of business. I held off for almost a year before joining hoping another one would open.
I don't see how other gyms can compete, kinda sad
My dream would be to open a right wing gym
Like operation Gym Crow
In my small town made up of mostly upper middle class family's ofcourse they want to go with the trendy name. I think most of the people only pay their memberships to have the tag on their key rings. While the ones whom actually work out and go to the gym 3 to 5 times a week would prefer a "real" gym.
Lmao, I've seen too many people like that..
I got injured 4 months ago. Haven't lifted or eaten right since. Back in the gym today and my squat 1rm went from 375 to 340.
I am confused but very pleased
I dropped from 190 to 155...
I don't understand really
