Giolla Fhaolain. Bench. April 28th , 2017.
The range of motion in a barbell routine is restricted, as the bar might end up resting on your chest. However, if you are using dumbbells, there is a greater range of motion. Here, your elbows can go way below the shoulders, and this range of movement is more effective to strengthen the muscles.
I have seen many people come to these plateaus in their bench press gains and just give up when all they needed to do was variate a little. If you come to one of these spots where you aren't seeing the improvements, look at the areas that i touched on today in this article. If you are still not seeing results, I suggest doing some negative reps, just do so with a spotter or fitness coach.
For a power-lifting routine, it is advisable to start off with about 175 pounds of weight. One needs to carry out a few repetitions for each set, and then alter the amount of weight you lift with each subsequent sitting. For instance, if one follows the routine on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, then on the first day, one should lift 175 pounds of weight with 5 repetitions, and then with 4 repetitions and so on, for 5 sets. The routine would be as follows:
Most people are unaware that a regular build and frame actually means that bench press would not be effective. People with long arms use the length of their arms to lift the weight, and as a result of this, this workout routine becomes ineffective and redundant. In the case of such people, the decline routine for strength is probably a better option. This is more suited to their body type and might prove to be more effective.
