Arrow Sticky Thread Sticky: The Official Ov35 Bench Press Thread!

May as well throw this one out there so we have all 3 major lifts represented. :) Open to ideas as to how things should run but here's how I see it..... - must be Flat BB Bench only (using an OLY bar). No Incline Bench, Decline Bench or DBs. - Raw lifts only. No shirted benching. (wrist...

Do you ever do barbell pullovers?

I never much cared for them, but did a lot of straight arm pulldowns. Really like pullover machines though. But tried pullovers with a barbell again this year and they seem to be working well. Guess I found the right ROM. I think in the past I was trying too hard on them.

Problem lifting with wedding ring

Does anyone else's wedding ring (if you even wear one) sometimes bother you when lifting? I've got a huge callous underneath my left ring finger, it's the only one. I'm not really fussed about the callous so much though, but worry I might either bend the crap out of my ring or pinch my finger...

Lower back tightness

I have this when I sit or stand for long periods. I have tried a lot of different ways to loosen this up. I have noticed when I warm up on the elipticalit tends to go away could this be hamstring or hip flexor related. not painful just annoying.
