Technique Vs Weight
I don't know about everyone else. But for me. More weight just means more strength. And better technique will be greater hypertrophy, especially in a bench press. If I dropped 100lbs off of my press I could try to target for hypertrophy and chest stimulation. If i jack the weight up, I'll definitely be using more muscles to get it up.
1-3 reps with max weight is alot of chest, back, shoulders and triceps.
1-3 reps with a heavy but not max weight, with isolation technique. Will probably be better for hypertrophy for the chest. But what are you trying to build?
4-6 range is getting closer to hypertryophy + strength
7-10 mostly hypertrophy with limited strength
11-16 very little strength,less hypertrophy,and more endurance
17+ forget strength, hypertrophy is now based on frequency, all endurance now
My guess: use 6x6 but with solid form, and decent weight. Screw tempo!
blast it up, drive from the elbows & get a good negative.
nuthin' to it.
