There you go making everyone jealous of your machine in the basement.

This morning there was about an hour when I wasn't coughing my fool head off. I thought, good I can work legs today and then the coughing started up again. I am shooting for Monday now.

My wife is much more sick than I am. She finally got up at noon today. She ate breakfast and headed into the living room to crash in the recliner. I had to wake her up for dinner at 7:30 p.m. because I was hungry. I made dinner easy by getting a roasted chicken from the market, some potato salad and I fixed a green salad too. I bet if I go into the living room right now, she is crashed again. The bedroom chair was askew when I went in to check on her this morning, which suggested she might have fallen during the night. When she woke up I asked her about it and she finally admitted that had happened. She said she was only on the floor for a few minutes, but last time she fell she was down for several hours before I heard her calling me. I am not sure I believe her. Frankly, I am concerned.

My workout today was a day of catching up on gardening. I did some pruning, weeding, planting, watering and I mowed the lawn. It is past time for late spring fertilizer, which I may do tomorrow. -Townhouse, here I come.

For some reason, declines have always been easier for me then flat bench presses, although dips are good too.

I like Dips too but i find Declines kinder to my shoulders...I like the angle you work at. Some do not like lying down with your head in a lower Position but it really hits my chest. Dips are similar as you know and safer if Training alone.

It takes a bit of set up, but I've moved the stand alone decline bench under the Smith machine and done declines that way. It makes it a little safer since there are more places to hook it off.

I am moving to Germany. Whew, it is hot, hot, hot here; 98 degrees Fahrenheit yesterday and 95 today. The hottest part of the day this far north and west is around 5:00 p.m. So it just keeps building and building all day long. The house cooled down to 74 with all the windows open overnight. It already has climbed to 76 and it is 84 degrees outside at 11:30 a.m. There is absolutely no breeze. This isn't making this friggin' cold feel any better. Summer colds have to be the worst.

NOOOOO.... Shocked  shoulder killer for me . No doubt you have a stronger shoulder structure than me. Dips and other exercises i can do but Girondas Press to neck is an exercise that is in my opinion a shoulder wrecker. You canīt use heavy weight with... unlike Decline press  and if you do it will cause Problems. A totally unnatural movement.

What is the advantage of doing these to-the-neck flat bench presses? I've done all manner of grips, close, wide and normal, thinking this made some difference. Of course narrow grip is a triceps exercise.

You are exactly right about this. It is rare to see anyone doing these at the gym. There are two decline bench setups which mostly go unused.

Lately there have been a lot of guys doing flat and incline dumbbell presses, some with amazingly heavy weight. With my arthritic hands and poor ability to grip, you won't see me doing these with mass weights anytime soon.
