Spot on mate, as I recall we both were beginning on the side like a 'regular' bp, and then at the end of the rep we willingly hit the db's against each other. I will pay attention to this next time, thanks!
I lol'd. The stereotype is totally true.
Hey man, we we're doing assistance work on the 5/3/1 which I recall being for powerlifting? There wasn't really forced repping. We newbies overestimated the difficulty of dumbells I guess, since we both bench press 200lbs with barbells. Indeed, balancing makes it so much more difficult.
What do you mean btw with the difference of going 'till failure and forced reps? Aren't they the same thing?? Atleast, that's what I thought.
We're both effectively PL'ing for 4 months, so the dumbells were indeed wobbly. I'll check his forearms next time, ty.
Thanks guys for all the feedback!
