Hit 270lb 1 arm D-bell rows
Thanks a lot. Currently I am working on getting my incline up there, I know I can bench over 400 now, and squat and dl over 600... my goal in 2 months is to cross 700 on the deadlift. How exactly did you get that insane incline bench? Is there a specific routine? And how long are your arms? Thanks.
Anytime BS8 When I was a teenager I always worked my front delts very hard, but i never used a routine for it. IM 5'7 and i never measured my arms but you can see em in the pix. I just think my incline is a result of a 440 overhead and a 550 bench. Split the diff and its 500+ incline.
those are some pretty impressive numbers. I'm curious though, when you do reps with 1000+shrugs or heavy rows etc. do you worry about getting a good stretch/squeeze, or do you just rep as much friggin' weight as you can. I'm asking this because When I train my back heavy, it's a lot funner, but it's a flat as a board. thanks
With the rows I pause at the bottom and blast them up. Id like to see a guy doing 1 arm rows super slow with 240. The strain on your body's supporting muscles is something else as well. Pecs,abs,tris, all are getting work as well as the back. I FEEL every inch of my lats after a all out set of rows. So Id have to say my form is very good at that. On shrugs I explode up with the weight driveing it to max height. When the weight gets over 1,000 it is more of a do or die thing, then a BB type exercise. No belt, just me and 11 plates per side. About your back id say its probally more your genetics to have a flat back then a BB type back. Some muscles no matter how hard you train wont look like you want em too. Just be happy your strong, becasue alot of guys arent... Stay Strong STA
How steep of an incline do you use? Like what angle, I keep varying the angle and I want a good "baseline" for comparison, so I can shoot for the 350 incline. thanks.
I use the standard incline built on most every incline bench 99.9% of the time, and that is 45 degrees. But if I cant and I have to use a adjustable bench I use a 30-45 degree angle. Its something you always have to watch because 1 nocth will make a world of difference. Its rare that I mess with the angle but if im just doing a light day or im deep into my workout I may.IMO use your strongest position that way you will use more muscle fibers, and get stronger faster. And again the standard angle is 45. STAY STRONG BS8 STA
