    Just do push ups with weights in a backpack. You don't even need a bench.

      also do them on rings to get the stabilization effect and rotation like dumbells

      If you want ottermode sure but turn you could just play football or go for a run because you won't gain any muscle mass from either.

        If you have enough added weight on you to not be able to do more than like 10-12 pushups, then it is hypertrophy zone right?

          It is but it's not enough stimuli if you want to get big. Sure you will gain some muscle but you won't look like you lift. Literally look at any football player. They are fit but with barely any muscle.

      my shoulders always hurt and feel loaded only when using this machine

        Had this problem when I started using the machine. I solved this by adjusting the seat a bit higher so my elbows are a bit tucked in. You'll have to adjust the seat a few times to find your groove depending your build/frame.

      Something about these machines just doesn't work for my body. I can bench 180lbs with good form for 5-8ish reps, but if I load 90lbs onto this fucker I can hardly move it. I've tried lowering and raising the chair, a closer or wider grip... it just doesn't work.

        the weight at the bottom of the pulley does not translate the the weight of barbells or dumbells in a comparable exercise.
        The actual resistance varies pretty greatly between types of machines, and even between identical machines depending on the state of the components.
        dont try to apply machine numbers to free weights and vice versa

    All pushing exercises are better with dumbbells.

    There is literally no reason to do BB bench unless you're a powerlifter.

          barbell flys have been scientifically proven to induce irrythmic dystrophy of the quadlaterial anterior pectoral muscle chain under equilaterial tension loads in several studies. It can lead to his pic.

            well its got its pros and cons, db gets better results for me than barbell ever did, eventually adding to barbell is hard in its own way, for instance I was stuck at 185 3x5 for several weeks before I started training with dbs, the thing is with dumbells you can also overload easier by squeezing out an extra rep every workout, so for instance you may be doing 70s but the first set you can do 11 reps the next time, but the second and third set are still 10 if that makes sense, it makes it easier to see tangible though less impactful gains, but I guess I got over training merely for strength I want to look and feel better and dbs are better suited for that anyway

              No offence this makes little sense. Barbell has more loading potential than dumbbell, that's the main advantage. You can't overload easier it's just less fatiguing since you're not pushing as heavy loads. It just sounds like you dont have good programming for increasing your bench press and just like doing DB more

              • 5 months ago
                Anonymous

                you overload dbs by increasing the total rep ranges, bb by weight if that makes sense, if youre going to increase reps on bb you would db for superior rom and less chance of injury, make sense?

              • 5 months ago
                Anonymous

                No it doesn't make sense because you can do progressive overload on both exercises by increasing weight or reps. The ROM on DB is superior though yeah, I do both with DB an an accessory movement

                Depends what your goals are? Are you trying to get better at heavy singles or progressing in higher rep ranges (say 5-7)? I would do variations of bench and be benching at least 3x a week if you want to get your bench up. Doing a pause day, tempo bench, or exercises like the Larsen press etc can all help increase your BB bench. Your chest is a smaller muscle and recovers quicker and can handle more volume on BB movements than your legs or back

                I want to look like a dorito shaped man and bench more than i currently do. I do bench 2/3 days a weeks 5 Sets, 6-8 reps do a pyramid most times.
                Seen a bunch on doing a heavy day and a dynamic day, also seen a hypertrophy day a power day and a strength day. There's all sorts.

              what do you think would have happened if you had done bb bench, but with 140lbs for sets of 3x10, do you think you could have squeezed out an extra rep?

                I actually did do 1pl8 for reps but I found when I used bb the weight was significantly less due to I guess some lacking stabilizer muscles, like I had trouble with 50s when I started

          You have a 170 lb bench press.
          90-95s would be an approximate for 2-plate.
