you got some very nice strength man. keep it up.

if you dont succeed, try and try again :p

ccbrands1 05-08-2009 03:06 PM

i appreciate the good word, niggles!
thank you

my chest and shoulder strength and developement have always lagged a little behind my back and lower body. I'm looking for techniques to further enhance gains on lifts like shoulder press and bench press. I've done some negatives in the past, and found that it really helps with pull ups.. Are negatives one of the best ways to gain strength in all compound exercises? Or is there another simple strength method anyone would recommend for shoulders and chest?

klosey 05-08-2009 03:07 PM

main ways to improve strength are to do strength cycles like bill starr 5x5 or ripptoe
