Does everyone go really weak when moving to a new exercise ? I just changed from DB press to the benchpress. Bloody depressing, lifted a massive 30kg's on the bar LOL. When doing DB lat raises DPups said 'i hop that's your warm up weight'... it was my actually balls to the wall weight:)

that happened to me aswell, its just the way things are, just keep increasing the weight consistently and it'll go up, you'll be suprised when you do 30kg balls out now, next week you can do 40kg not so balls out, all the way upto 100kg+ (not that quickly, but shouldnt take that long)

If its an Olympic bar - they tend to weigh around 25kgs... Also If you have gloves on - or a watch - or long nails even - then you can add 10kgs for each of these too towards your lifting strength - after all, the American board members do it... Oh and dont forget the collars to lock on the plates - each one of those suckers is approx 20kgs if you guestimate correctly.

you should be lifting heavier on the benchpress, with DB press you have to use stabiliser muscles and you have a db in each hand which makes it harder, but anyway, lucky for you son god created steroids.....

Yeah - but you need to round to nearest 100... So its an even 100kgs or about 450 pounds using the standard bodybuilding conversion metrics.

Anyone think doing only either db or bb bench press is not the way to go? Anyone does only one of the above???
