Not really. I always end my reps on a negative. It causes more muscle hypertrophy. After I usually hit my 8 rep (barely), I slowy bring it back down provided I have a strong spotter.

What I meant was that after I hit positive muscle failure on say 8 reps, I don't just rerack it on the top of the press like everyone else does. Instead, I bring it back down and rack it from there. Granted, this only works on either dumbbells or the smythe machine. That's why I use the smythe machine now on incline presses and military presses. Try it out. The burn you get is unbelievable.

Say I do incline smythe. I barely got my eighth rep with a light spot. Now, instead of just racking it at the top (arms outstretched), I lower it back down and rack it at the bottom of the movement. Doing this method allows for greater hypertrophy.

Actually, I'm doing a different type of training...Check it out in my DC Journal. Mostly rest/pausing which f*cks me up ten times more than anything else I ever done! I made it noob proof just for you. I explained everything in there Barney style for anyone who doesn't understand the basic concept. ;)

Sounds great. Yeah, I'm training every other day and it definately beats 5 straight days! Twice as sore too.
