You look solid man. Your elbows were a bit wide for MY liking but go where ever is best for you. Maybe play with some 2 boards as this is where you stalled at. Maybe consider some chain work. Blasting thru sticking points helped me. I’d work the tri’s like a mother. Cannot have too strong of a triceps.
GOOD JOB man! [/quote]
Can I ask what you do specifically for tricep work? It’s been a recent realization that my triceps are a weak link. [/quote]
Close Grip Bench work, Comp Bench work with Chains, Bands, or Slingshot type, JM Presses, Board Presses at and just below the sticking point, various press downs and lots of volume. My press is finally moving again since I have upped my volume tremendously. [/quote]
exactly what I was gonna say.
If I may, “West-side” esque training is taking some shit the last year or two as the Raw zealots have heavily criticized the program. Other trainers / former West-Siders are more or less distancing themselves from Louis to get their brand out there often times at the expense of bad mouthing WS BUT the shit works. sure, beginners typically only need to do the basics to get stronger but at some point, we all need specific special exercises to better ourselves. Our bodies are wonderfully able to adapt to the stress presented to them. Therefore it just makes sense to change the stimulus. Simply adding weight to the bar isn’t enough change to stave off training adaptation.At least it isn’t for me. No I am not a special snowflake but I know what works for me. Subtle changes get me progressing but at some point an given mass of muscle can only move “x” weight. If that were not true, every gym rat in the world would be epic lifters and insane weights would be the norm.
