    pretty much, the concentric phase of the following exercises below

    Barbell bench press <---bringing the weight down
    leg pres <---same
    squat <---same
    V-grip seated row <---extending your arms
    Shoulder press <---bringing the weight down
    Lunge <---same
    lat pull down <---extending the arms
    Concentric phase is always the lowering of the weight, whether it's on a pulley system or not

    I hope you're joking, or maybe just confused, but the concentric phase of those exercises is the opposite of what thegodjr said. Example, the concentric phase of the bench press is when you push the weight up. The concentric phase is always when the muscle shortens.

    Yea the other guy got it mixed up. Concentric is the part where you exert force. Pushing part of bench press, pulling part of back movements, extension of knee for quads, curling of leg for hamstrings.

    Ah yes, I have seemed to confuse concentric with eccentric.

    Sorry op, but at least you got your answer!

    pretty much, the concentric phase of the following exercises below

    Barbell bench press When you are pushing the weight up
    leg press When you are pushing the weight up
    squat When you are pushing the weight up
    V-grip seated row When you are pulling the weight towards you
    Shoulder press When you are pushing the weight up
    Lunge When you are pushing the weight up
    lat pull down When you are pulling the weight down
    I usually think of concentric as exerting force, and the negative portion as resisting a force.

    Hoped he was joking as well lol

    Yeah when i read that guys post i panicked too, as I am studying a similar topic and was sure it was the opposite which it is, eccentric is the lowering phase and concentric the upper phase. Focusing on the eccentric is highly beneficial or so i am led to believe. He is correct if you switch concentric and eccentric around.

    The best way to remember it is to simply learn what each is. Eccentric is a contraction in which the muscle is lengthening, concentric is shortening. That way you dont need up/down etc which isn't always true.
