HINT: if an upper body movement is such that it takes articles and articels to learn how to even do it properly without injuring yourself… then maybe it’s time to look at other options ESPECIALLY if those other options are a lot easier to learn and don’t have the same injury risk.
I used to do dips. Then I realized that no matter how i tweaked my form, they fucked up my shoulders. I stopped doing them. Is this heresy?
Or maybe I’m just not as hardcore as everyone else here.
a lot easier to learn? dude it’s a BENCH PRESS. we’re not doing fucking rocket science over here.
if you have the mental capacity to log onto an internet forum, sign in with a name and password, and then whine about how u’re tummy hurts when you bench press, you can certainly learn how to do the freaking movement.
there’s ‘articles and articles’ on freaking lateral raises. you think i should give those up too? shit, how about this - i won’t do any exercises that i can find 5 articles and 2 instructional videos on. that way i can end up looking the the OP and never have to worry about pain.
i’m not saying you have to do every exercise in the book. hell, the MAJORITY of seasoned guy’s that i know that bodybuild usually have a few exercises they don’t do because of pain or injury.
but when a random dude off the street says he has to ‘give up benching’ when the GIRLS I DATE have a higher muscularity than him…well shit, time to get his case of vaginaitis examined.
…or maybe i need to stop banging trannies. but you get the point
