I was doing my bench day at the gym a few days ago.
I asked a guy for a spot no actually he came up to me and OFFERED a spot
and I obliged for my ME set and after the set
he made a comment to me something along the lines of "you have good
(than he either said fast twitch or slow twitch I don't remember) because
you are really good at the bottom half of the rep"
I did not want to make any conversation with him since he was declining 365 with
less than 1/6 range of motion in a very shaky scary way and I did not want him to ask me for a spot which I would have refused anyways but I did that before to someone and every time he sees me he mean mugs me. So I just moved over to the other side of the gym to finish workout.
My question is could somebody elaborate on what he was talking about? He could have no idea what he was talking about as far as fast twitch/slow twitch.
But as far as me being good at bottom half of rep it is true now thinking
about it every time I have gotten stuck on bench it is always at about half way through the rep.
What does this mean? How can I improve on the 2nd half? Is it that my shoulders are stronger than my triceps? Should I be doing rack presses starting at midway through the range of motion? If so what is the best way to incorporate those rack presses into 5/3/1 training? Would using bands help? Would using bands along with rack pressing help? Please help my bench is really lagging behind my squat/deadlift any input would be awesome. Thanks!
