[quote="Goob"]Maybe I missed something, but is there a reason behind the floor press instead of bench decision? Also, this de-load business looks so boring. Mine starts next week and I'm not looking forward to it.


My weakness on bench has always been pushing through the mid-point and lockout. With floor press, you're pressing from that mid-point. It's great for triceps. I do regular incline bench too.

Makes sense then. The only people I see doing floor presses are the guys that are always benching in one of those goofy rubber band shirts :lol:

Yes. I see people trying to bench with those shirts that aren't even strong enough to pull the weight down to their chest. One guy told me he can't get it to his chest unless it's at least 500 lbs (~225 kg) but he can only bench 550 lbs (~250 kg.)

Oh ok yeah I have heard it's often more difficult to get the weight down to your chest than it is to press it when you wear a bench shirt. I have nothing against equipped lifting but I'm not really interested in it, but that's more to do with the fact that I'm not interested in competing, either raw or equipped.

I didn't have anything against equipped lifting till that guy told me he couldn't get the bar to his chest without 500 lbs. They should call that something else.

Yeah it's just due to how tight the shirts are and how well they are broken in. It might be a new shirt that he's using. I don't know much about them but yeah a lot of the time the biggest challenge is to actually get the bar down.
