Weird day, like iv said b4 i havtn flat BB benched in 2 years. I tried keepin my feet back but found it hard driving threw the heels as they wer kinda off the ground. Keptmy grip at the power rings, but tried keeping elbows tucked in as much as possible,it krept out on the 209 attemp but got it up.also tried archin back.
It all felt a bit weird as i havnt done alot of flat benching,and especially powerlifting technique, but itl come.

Close grip was way too light.
Pulldowns are getting upped aswell.
and laterals felt ok.

Im just doing them on dynamic day, the way wicked suggested.using like 110lbs and doing 3 sets of 3 quick reps on wide then normal then close.
I was gonna use more weight but if wickeds using 165lbs il stick with 110 for a couple more weeks.

Oh hahaha, my bad mate sorry.

Wide im out as far as i can,couple inches off the collars at each side. Normal for me up until now has been middle finger over the power ring. Close has been index finger just inside the smooth part at middle of bar (rest of fingers on the rough).

Tho im gonna been bringing my normal grip in the way a bit, so in future my close grip will also been narrower aswell.

ah all right.

wicked or L4S can correct me on this, but i seem to remember the westside idea with alternating grips not to involve going that crazy. more like normal is wherever you bench, and wide and close are a hand's width inward or outward.

Yeh i guess. My new normal grip is gonna be hands just insde power rings.so my close grip will be all hands just in the smooth part of the bar.Wide will be hands about 3-4 inches wider that normal grip.

Question for u guys (a couple actually), im rotating excercises every few weeks as i was told to do i.e. back squat for 3 weeks, then deadlift for 3 then front squat for 3 then back to squats....same with upepr body, flat bench for 3 then incline, then decline.
After heavy squats would u change to front squats or deads next?

2.When i change a major excercise, should all others in the workout change e.g. change tri excercise from CGBP to dips?Just curious.

3. Im not sure if im making too big jumps on the sets b4 i hit 1rm, and its taking alot out of me.

i.e. today on bench day i did (im writing it in kilos), 60Kg's for 10, then 70 for 8,then 80 for 6, then 90 for 1 and 95 for 1 (missed out set of 3). should i use less weight on the sets of 10,8,6 given what my max is? SHould i be using like 40kgs for 10, then 50 for 8,60 for 6, 70 for 3....AND then take big jump and start with the 1 rep maxes with 90 and see if that helps? Kinda feel maybe my sets of 10,8,6 are taking alot out of me?!
Same applys for squats i guess.

i never change my main lift, honestly. i just cycle intensity. i'll do singles for a few weeks, triples, maybe sets of five. i've noticed that if i cycle out a lift for too long i don't get very good at it. of course that only applies to my bench i suppose, my pull and squat have been stalled for a while.

Yeh, im just going on wickeds suggestions so gonna give ait a shot.

What do u think about how i should up weight each set leading up2 a max. I think the idea of starting very light and doing it like i posted above, could be better for me?!
