The first time in a while jaybvee. I did rack in time. In thinking back to when it hit me, it was about about half-way in my push. If it was right off the chest, may have been a different, maybe more entertaining story, hehe.
My thoughts exactly, what does my hamstring have to do with getting a barbell off my chest! What I do now is it is always my right one that this happens to. It did hurt like a SOB.
As far as hydration goes, makes sense. I use surgeworkout fuel 30 min serving protocol plus plenty of fluids before, during, and after.
I am lifting heavy weight…for me. I think I will try brush aside my ego for now, and use lighter weights with my feet up to make sure my pecs are firing right (per Stu) and once I know they are, go back feet on the ground in heavy sets like you and tribunal mentioned. [/quote]
I don’t see it as a matter of your pecs firing, I see it like Tribunal does. Your body has to work to stabilize itself, your hamstrings will flex regardless if your pecs are doing the majority of the work or your delts are.
Try stretching your hams before your heavy bench sets
