After having a little accident with the weights a while back (hello clean & press + too much chalk to slide grip width = letting one hand try to handle 155 lbs. = shoulder impingement ! But I’m feeling much better now)Yeah, I was stupid on that one.
I visited a chiropractor who succesfully ART’d the hell out of me (OUCH!)
He mentioned to me in the course of his diagnosis that too many guys in general overtrain their chests/anterior dominant… true enough but then he went on to say that he has gone for months at a time without doing any direct chest work ! This coming from a guy that was fairly large and quite strong… and he still had huge chest girth (He is the chief chiro for the CDN Olympic lifting team)
Now, what is the T-Mag stance on this ?
DO you think that OL can build a chest sans direct work ?
I know being “pec-centric” is addictive… but can I expect to maintain overall size and strength without chest work for a while ? I’d definitely like to hear from those that have tried this and the results…
Thanks in advance. JAY
