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...

New split - enough frequency?

I have been on push/pull/legs for almost 2 months. My bench both flat and incline is improving and notice that working shoulders right after chest I begin to lose steam. I like to keep 3 exercises per body part and basically focusing on 2 compound movements then a Iso movement. My schedule was...

Improving Bench

I'm a noob lifter. I weigh 198 and I'm almost 40. I did a lot of body weight stuff over the years, and a lot of martial arts and jiu-jitsu, but never realized how important weight lifting was until about a year ago. I started with strong lifts 5x5 about August of last year. I followed that...

The physiques that inspired you throughout the years

There were many physiques that I've found impressive and inspirational, but the 6 below stick out the most in my mind (in chronological order). They are all guys I expected, at one time in my life, to "look like". Who are the guys who's physiques (not necessarily their philosophies or...

Smolov Bench Experiment

When I first started Powerlifting 3 years ago I was a one trick pony. I had a good Bench but had to learn to Squat and Deadlift. At my first meet I took a National record and later a World by my second meet for Bench Press. Every meet since, I’ve PR’d on either Squat and/or Deadlift, but Bench...

Frequency Advice

Here's my dilemma in a nutshell. I'm in my 50s. I'm trying to change my body and push things a bit rather than just maintain the shape I've been in. I'm in decent shape and moderately built but not at all sculpted. I want to try to get at least a bit sculpted. I've tried various schedules over...

Hitting your prime and regression

I am 35 and consider myself in decent shape but, like many people, wish that I had started my serious weight training earlier in life. My question is as to what age range do you think you hit the point to where your growth potential has maxed out and then it becomes more of maintaining the years of...

hi, I'm trying to lose weight. I am doing a combination of primarily kettlebell HIIT workouts, some kettlebell strength workouts, and a bit of long distance running. I am in an area where gyms are super expensive, so while I used to do compound weightlifting at the gym, I no longer do so, and...

Hi there. I mentioned in another thread that 8-9 years ago I used to work out, I bulked for a couple of years, grew to a pretty reasonable size but due to various other commitments I gave up before I ever got round to cutting. 9 years of eating pizza and chocolate eventually caught up with me...

Hip Belt Squats
