Bob - I've benched 100kgs for a double a while ago, maybe a couple of years now. I decided a little while ago to do all my pressing with a pause, not long; just a count of one, but enough so there is no bounce. It makes all the difference. My pressing has been up and down over the last year, but finally it seems to be on an upward trajectory. Squats and deadlifts always keep going up, I put front squats in a while ago and have made some steady progress. The goal is 10 x 100kgs. Hopefully by the end of march I'll be there.


that's a good idea about the pause. I don't bench with a bar anymore but I do something similar with dumbells, lowering into the stretch and holding the stretch for a second before lifting again.

Keeps the reps more honest I feel, otherwise bouncing and momentum come into play. This way your reps are all uniform.

you going to try your hand at powerlifting?

I've thought about entering a powerlifting meet, even gone so far as to have a look for local ones in my area. There's a local one in May but it would require becoming a member of a federation and it also falls on a weekend which is very inconvenient. In short, it's being considered and something I would like to have a pop at once. Just so I could say I did it.

nice to have you back Phil, I thought maybe you'd died.

Humour me a moment and give this exercise a try and see how you feel:



it apparently realigns your pelvis, because your pelvis is rotated to the right. Everyone's is, apparently.

I've been doing it a few days now and it's made such a huge difference to my posture already. Quite astounding really.

So a deadlift enthusiast like yourself may get some benefit.

Cheers
