LOL thanks :laughing:


#1568

Yes, thanks!! I’ll try not to dwell too much. I think it only bugs me because bench was really the only thing I was “good” at and now it’s just as mediocre as all my other lifts LOL.

Blockz? What does that mean? Like a floor press with blocks holding the bar up under the plates?


#1571

It’s a thing you can put on the bar so you can board press without having friends to hold a board for you Lol


#1572

Oh kewl, learn something new everyday. I never thought of doing split squats with a front foot elevated either, I think I might try those, I want to build some nice teardrop quads, not so worried about the hamstrings. Would kind of be like a bulgarian split squat but easier.


#1573

I actually MacGyvered that, I built some bench boards and screwed a boating clip onto the top. Lined with some plastic it fits perfectly on the bar.
