@kckfl349 No problem man. I had to stalk that item pretty good. Basically checked the page every few hours every day. Titan is pretty bad about letting you know when something is back in stock. On that note, I just got an e-mail from them saying that my credit card information was most likely compromised, so they’re not good at a lot of things, haha. In truth, I’m waiting for their ship to sink, and I’m just getting in while the getting is good. I don’t see their approach being sustainable.
@atlas13 Good to know I’m not alone. I can get a little bit of a rebound out of the bottom that way, bouncing my forearms against my knees. I know that’s probably why it’s illegal in powerlifting.
DEEP WATER ADVANCED PROGRAM WORKOUT 3 (WEEK 1, WORKOUT 3)
Axle bench press 286
Close grip axle bench 241
1 minute plank/20 sit ups
3 rounds, no rest
Notes: 3:50 rest between sets. This continues to be a solid approach for benching. Keep cutting the rests and move as much as I can, then up the rest and start over. Clearing some big former plateaus here. I always like to look back and remember the first time I ever maxed my bench was a college freshmen, and I hit a 275 and thought that was pretty cool. Since that time, I really haven’t felt like my bench has gotten much stronger, and then I see me hitting 3x10 with 10lbs more than that and I realize I’m doing ok.
The program cuts out 1 exercise at this point, and I’m thinking it’s a good move, because my elbows and shoulders are pissed. A break might be just what I need, and I may actually end up recovering more and super compensating.
On that note, woke up at 204.8. Talking about other milestones, this is the bodyweight I was at in 2011 when I decided I was tired of being fat and dropped 20lbs. Body comp is a lot better this time around.
