Rest-Pause/ Bench Press
When rest/pausing on bench you rack the weight or lock out? I have been locking out
but can't seem to squeeze out many more reps...the workout I am doing calls for "eeking" out 3-4
extra reps but I seem to only, barely, eek out 1-2 more.
Any suggestions? [img]/forum/images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img]

Re: Rest-Pause/ Bench Press
how long are you locking out?

Anywhere from 3-5 seconds....seems like it is just long enough to get two really deep breaths and
then go for it again....

I find that's typical for me. I lock out at top of movement for a few seconds, and can get 1 or 2 more, then I rest again for a few more seconds, and can get 1, maybe 2 more. Then I'm done. That should qualify for the "eeking out 3-4 reps using rest/pause" instructions.

You can rest/pause several times if needed.

Ditto! I lock out as well.
