On the advice of a friend (who is much stronger than me and has been training for a lot longer than me) I tried a pre-exhaust type of routine for my chest workout on Sat.
Incline DB Press
Wide grip feet-elevated pushups for a finisher
He said to just put bench at the end instead of the beginning.
What I noticed:
Needed heavier weights for my ‘assistance’ stuff to feel like I was doing anything.
Pre-fatiguing my pecs made me put more TRICEPS into benching. Not exactly what I’m after.
Now, this type of system seemed counter-intuitive to me in the first place, but I gave it a shot. Any thoughts on how to go about this type of routine? Did I just screw it up, miss the point, or what?
