Ok, so I purchased some stuff online.

Protein

I bought 11 lbs of Whey Concentrate from True Protein. Dutch Chocolate Fudge Flavor. Tastes pretty good. It will take some time to get used to this. I hate having protein powders lol.

Here's the link: Whey Protein Concentrate

Fatty Acids

I bought 100 tablets from All The Whey of Fish Oil.

Here's the link: Fish Oil

What a waste of money...I could've bought a 1000 tablets from True Protein at a much better rate: True Protein Fish Oil

Oh well...next time...

Weightlifting Accessories

I purchased some Fractional Plates and Wrist Straps from APT Pro Wrist Straps.

Here are the links:

haha....yeah. perhaps. or perhaps pin presses? that sounds good actually. i might do that to be honest next time. ill do the DE work and then 2 sets of pin presses and then 1 set of a paused press. ofcourse, paused press comes first...

Aren't you more or less maintaining bench? DE work notwithstanding if you start worrying about sticking points then you are not really maintaining you are trying to improve or overcome. Sounds like a case of not being able to stick to a plan.

Having your sticking points move around is normal and GOOD. That is what you want to happen. It means you got the job done and now there is a new job. It's nothing to get upset about. If your workout went to plan then don't worry about it. Just doing the DE work can help that kind of sticking point anyway.

Doing some board or pin pressing is not big deal of course. It's not that. It's just that I don't want to see you get carried away manipulating bench day and all of a sudden you're doing something completely off plan.

Now, for pin presses, if you mean mid-point pin presses...I hate them. The pins fuck it all up and make it completely unnatural. You can't beat boards for that. It is like a regular bench press just higher, whereas the pins tend to turn it into a slightly different exercise.

oh yeah...im only maintaining. shit. why do i keep forgetting???

alright, E. ill remember that next time. sorry.....

this is why i need to be reeled in....bloody over eager.

My bench hasn't really moved in...well, I don't even want to say. I think I reached my peak about a year ago? And have since been trying to recapture the glory. Feel better? :D

_Wolf_ 01-20-2008 02:47 PM

nah...you know me....i dont feel better with someone else not being able to do what i want to do....

but thats damn odd...its been a YEAR since you've actually progressed on the bench??? shit...i have a lot to learn in terms of patience haha

No not exactly....it's more like dropping some weight off max, getting some back, etc. and so on, lol. It's wierd and I have managed to identify some of the culprits, such as shoulder problems, but to tell the truth I was pretty darn surprised I got as good as I was and bench is not something I'm going to sweat too much. I don't lay in bed at night thinking about bench. My head is full of deadlifting :)

Good workout. No more forearm work until next week, OK? Also, instead of overloading on such forearm volume you should mix it up with supportive grip training.
