opps....I should have put this here.... instead I started a new thread.   Mods can delete my thread if you want.

I have been looking to rotate in some new exercises when I bump up cals in a few weeks.  Today I tried (for the first time in over 10 years) some flat bench dumbells.   I had done some decline a while back but decided to see what flat felt like today.

My dumbells only go to 120 so I loaded them up.

My form was herky jerky (much like my squat I had not done in so long).   I also need to remove the safeties from my rack as I was hitting into them on the way down.  I started to rotate them as I lowered them to miss the stops.

Anyway....I think I will be ordering the 160lb kit now :D    Dont think 120's are going to cut it when I start getting some strength back.  Always fun to have a reason to order some new stuff!

120 db x 10

Strong as fuck.

That would drive me nuts having them clank off the rack like that.

Yea....it really messes up your 'groove'   for the latter sets, I just removed the safeties and there was no clearance issues.  That kind of stuff can really screw you up though when it throws off the balance.

Lesson learned and I wont repeat it.

On a good note, I really felt it quite well through the chest. (which is a weak point visually for me).   I think I am going to put these over flat bench for a while....and see what I can do.

Looked good and stable, im with flex that would have thrown me way off with hitting the rack. How do those heavy DB's feel with that twisting motion in your shoulders? I know you ahd to do it due to the rack, seems to add some excess stress to your RC but maybe thats just my stupid thought process

Power 'n' Pain?

1,800lbs

I could prolly squeeze out a rep or two at 1200, but I don't see much point in that...

1800-2000# working sets, lmao.

You are creeping up though FLEX, that's some seriously impressive weight you're moving man. I've gotten myself stuck in the damn leg press a couple of times and no matter when it happens, there always seems to be some woman behind me with a big a$$ grin on her face as I crawl my sorry a$$ out and unrack the weight, lmao.

Tonight's bench vids. I'm trying to only take vids of PR's and PR attempts but figured I'd get the set of 315 considering it's the last day of the month.

Thanks FLEX. The thought of having to strip the weight off and reload it really helps with that last rep.  8)

Thanks TM.

Yep, safeties are on the 7 hole, and I've had many, many fails in that rack. I still give you the credit for telling me to find a lower bench, I've made steady gains since doing that.

Ventured into some new territory today on squats. Not a new max single, but a new max triple with no belt or knee wraps.

385 x 3

Raw Squat - 385 x 3


My 18th ( :eek: ) and final set I was trying for 405 x 5 but only squeezed out 3.....

Squat - 405 x 3



Got up to 475 for a single again today; I think I am maybe 2-3 weeks away from a 5 plater

fuck i need to take muy own advice on the bench mine is a little to high for me

i keep thinking about buying the cheap flat bench they sell at rogue for flat bench only  but never want to drop the money and benching has not been as important to me lately with my fuck up shoulders and all
