    That's it. I changed my form and it feels great. I have my heels pretty much at shoulder width apart, toes turned...

    The paused sets are a lot longer but I haven't come across anything to indicate that is beneficial for hypertrophy compared to a non-paused set done to a similar RIR.

    The bigger difference is that...

    Back curvature can come from trying to keep a straight bar path down and up when you do not have the mobility to do so with your current stance. If at the bottom you are having buttwink that can make...

    Yep. Try it for a couple of weeks and see how it goes. If you choose a weight that is like a 10 rep max and stick to doing 7-8 reps (do the concentric as explosively as possible) or so that will...

    If you like your current set up you can probably just keep doing the same thing but stop 2-3 reps shy of failure. For hypertrophy somewhere in the 10-20 set per week range seems to do a good job;...

    How many of your bench/dip sets are close to failure? Are they all typically within 1-2 reps of failure? You may have simply gotten to the point where you need to move away from linear progression...

    Yeah, my point moreso is that if you are able to progress well with squat/deadlift then there is likely something wrong with the way you are programming your bench. If the issue was...

    This study makes a strong case that a lying triceps extension should be included with a bench press to get meaningful increases in the long head. I do think the long head would get hypertrophy with...

    In that case I would work on just doing faster intervals first. All out sprinting will be more demanding. As you build up to it if you want to sprinkle in some sprints that should be ok. Just start...

    Doing high rep sets to failure (or within a couple of reps) will work well. Doing one-armed pushups first could pre-fatigue the shoulders/triceps and then the chest may get worked well with regular...

    Several of these studies cite a couple references indicating 20% velocity loss comes to doing about half the reps needed for failure. RIR is thus going to depend on the actual reps done for the set....
