The only way to be a champion is by going through these forced reps and the torture and pain. That's why I call it the torture routine, because it's like forced torture, torturing my body. What helps me is to think of this pain as pleasure. Pain makes me grow; Growing is what I want. Therefore for me, pain is pleasure. So when I experience pain, I'm in heaven.
Just about any back exercise. The trick is to actually retract the scapular.Originally Posted by Hypo
Just about any pressing exercise below 60 degree incline.Quote
No such thing as inner chest. Clavicular head (upper chest) is recruited with all presses but has greater (proportional) leverage with greater inclines.Quote
Tim - thanks man, i never knew the degree of the bench mattered so much, i had the bench while doing DB rotator cuff warm ups on the 2nd hole, (not much incline) im going to start with the 2nd and see how it works
for back, i've been somtimes (with pulldowns and rows) flexing my back while repping out. does feel like im getting pumped.
MGballa, i'll test it out soon, and tell you what goes on
just hope the plates are there
