You're on. Any bench press improvement will be welcomed this end.

I think you should elaborate on this training technique.

It's a new exercise fad i'm working on, no one squats in my gym (properly anyhow), so i thought if i introduced a few items of women's lingerie it might make it all a bit more appealing to the gym goers. No takers so far.

Intriguing idea.

G-string deadlifts, anyone?

You bet!!!! :eek:

Nothing chuckles me more in a gym to see a guy with big shoulders, big arms, huge chest walking around on skinny little chicken legs with no glutes to be seen. That described everyone at the gym this morning.

you prefer them to have full, pert buttocks?

There is actually a guy at my gym who has the upper body of a Mr Olympia and the tiniest, skinniest legs I've ever seen. It's weird, I didn't actually think anyone could let themselves get like that. He can curl more than he squats.

I found myself at work the other day admiring this guy in a pair of slacks, and you could tell/see he had some great legs/bum. He walked tall. I just knew he led the room whenever he entered. Chinos never looked so good.

I wouldn't say it's a matter of preference, it's jut a tell tale sign as to whether someone trains properly or not. Couple of guys in the gym today 'training' legs, i don't think a bead of sweat broke from there brow.

I've actually dropped hip thrusts because my glutes are way overdeveloped compared to my legs, so rest assured Phil, I'm not one of those guys. I'm voluptuous.

Nice work on the bench Phil. My shoulder's going to out of action for another few weeks so you might end up overtaking me
