Rule 10: the virtual three board press

When performing a bench press, at the bottom position, you must leave at least six inches between the bar and your chest. If performed correctly, you should be able to fit a medieval bible between your chest and the bar.

[DO you get this in the USA? I see this in UK gyms all the time]

Don't forget: if you can lower 100kg within hailing distance of your chest, you can tell everyone you have a '100 kg benchpress'.

There is actually a guy in my area, that runs a gym, he's a big celebrity here. He tells his clients not to go all the way down on the bench press, because he says your chest rests between reps and he says you should keep the tension constant. He says once the forearm and upper arm hits a right angle, that's the lowest you should go.

Supplemental rule: invoking legendary weightlifting acquaintance.

When talking to a more experienced lifter, always make reference to someone else you know that lifts much more than they do.

Use this formula: (amount they are lifting * 1.5) + 120lbs


Example of how to apply this formula:


Quote:
How much you squatting, man? 400lbs? Sweet. Yeah, my cousin used to be into lifting and he used to do 720lbs. For, like, ten reps.

Addition to Tann's rule...when talking to someone who deep squats or benches big numbers, always remark that you used to deep squat 500 and bench 400 before your knee/shoulder injury.

Rule 13 - Use a spotter on cable movements, afterall, safety first!

(*We have a bunch of ****ers at my gym who do forced/spotted reps on things like calbe crossovers, cable rows and such. It makes up some great homoerotical scenery now and then LOL)
