Yeah I agree lol.
But if you want conspiracy theories… I would chalk it up as a bodypart that he is more gifted in than say his chest which he must train more intensely to catch up/keep up.
This is true. I don’t have to do much to have a big back. I can pick up really heavy shit, but can’t do 10 pull ups. I have never really needed to.
But my chest sucks gerbil titties.
I think everyone has certain body parts that develop at a faster pace than others. [/quote]
Yeah I agree with ya.
I guess my whole intent on posting this was to see if somehow doing all that heavy benching could lead to a bigger back. I know I’ve read that benching does incorporate some back muscles, just wasn’t sure if it could help with actual back development or if it’s more for working muscles to help stabilize the weight.
I would have asked this guy his thoughts, but to be honest he really doesn’t know alot about lifting. He’s just one of those guys who has done it for a while and doesn’t get into the “science” of it. Apparently it’s worked for him.
