6-16-14 – Max Effort Upper Body

I am in the need of having heavy weight put on my triceps! I decided to use my max effort day to bench press to a 2 board with a close grip and chains. The chains added about 80 pounds at the top. The problem I see with benching with chains is that the weight…

3-17-14 – Working Towards a Strong Bench

Today’s bench session was heavy three’s and they all felt fast and explosive. I maintained tightness with every set, which helped me keep the weight steady and also drive it up.  I went up to…



3-12-14 – Close Grip Incline Bench

Today is my arm day, and I usually do some type of close grip bench. I chose to do incline bench with the E-Z curl bar, which was something that I haven’t done in a while.  Today I focused on keeping my elbows close to my side, because it is something that…
