Is there any way to do the decline bench press without a spotter ? for the flat bench press and squats I use a sawhorse because I do not have a spotter which works really well but now that I started to do the decline bench press it is much too low so I can't really go heavy. Is there anything I can...

Sled pull / push

So I'm thinking of making a homemade sled that I can put weights on and pull/push it. Two questions. 1) what is a heavy sled pull/push? For example a 315lb bench would be pretty good. Or for example the rankings on strengthlevel.com. I'm sure I can just throw on weight till it hits a reasonable...

Building up leg strength.

Basically I've ignored working out my legs since I have naturally large legs (16 inch calves without working them out more than once a month). So my legs are lacking in strength. I did a couple sets of squats today but I was too sketched out to go over 185. On leg press I went up to 400 without...

Switching to pause reps instead of touch and go reps on bench press. Good or bad?

I am trying to increase my bench press and I feel more stable and have better control using pause reps while benching heavier weights (7 sets of 3 reps). Touch and go reps with heavy weight on the bench press feels awkward on my core, especially my joints. I feel that touch and go reps are good if...
