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...

Physique before physique?

I know there is often a thin line between "physique" and "bodybuilder"…but I think most people recognize a distinct difference in aesthetics. It got me thinking about “bodybuilders” from the 50s, 60s, 70s, and maybe even the 80s that looked much more like today’s Physique class (although physique...

Is the sauna good or bad for muscle growth?

I'm 37 years old and have been lifting for a few years. I've grown accustomed to spending 10-15 minutes in the Sauna after an intense workout. My primary goal is muscle growth. I need to know if I'm hurting muscle growth by entering the sauna after my workout.

Forarm exercises to alleviate golfers elbow

Because of my work, constant typing and repetitive wrist motions for a long period of time and lack of strength on my forarm I've developed as it seems a mild case of golfers elbow. This has put some doubt in my ability to perform at 100% when lifting weights, especially now that I'm 2 weeks in...

Osteoathritis: Is it the end?

In the lead up to my last PL meet in Feb this year, I had my right knee blow up wickedly in the final week of prep. Being the stubborn idiot I am I did the meet anyway (new Bench and DL Prs, 112.5kg & 192.5kg respectively yay). The issue is that the knee is swollen, feels like either my VMO or...

Random / Working in

So does anyone else get pissed off when people ask to work in with you? I dont mean people hogging the machine, I mean like when you're only one or two sets in.

Sticking to BB Rows for the sake of time efficiency

I know that DB rows are probably better as a muscle builder due to better support, range of motion, etc. Do you guys think it's a fair difference though? Personally I row about 20% more (if I double the DB weight) which is a strong symbol to me that maybe it really is vastly superior as a movement....

Bench press for tall guys

I'm 6'3 with 6'6 wing span. I don't have any triceps-specific exercises in my workout, although I have a lot of compound lifts that will work tri's. As the fat peels away, my tri's are one of the muscles I notice the most and my chest is probably the weakest area of my body. Is it a...
