    EliteFTS: Memorial Info

    Free Shipping* until midnight Monday, May 30th 2005


    http://www.flexcart.com/members/elitefts/frames.asp?cid=114


    For Memorial Day, we knew people were going to expect a sale. We threw around some ideas but didn’t want to make it seem like EFS took this holiday for granted.

    So out of respect for our troops all over the world, the holiday and the freedom we enjoy, we decided not to run some elaborate sale. Instead, we decided to do something simple; Free Shipping.

    Please take advantage of this offer and remember to honor those who have fought for our freedom.

    Training Tip - Weak Lockout

    A weak lockout can be a result of several different things but one of the most overlooked is elbow positioning. The elbow is the fulcrum of the bench press and should dictate bar position throughout the entire lift.

    Many people are very focused on tucking the elbows on the descent. This is very important as this will ensure proper bar position on the eccentric. This will minimize shoulder strain as well as putting the bar in the most powerful position.

    But few people realize how important elbow positioning is during the concentric portion of the bench press. As the bar is pushed off of the chest, there should be a natural untucking of the elbows. When the bar is completely locked out the elbows should be pointed out.

    The best way to experience this is to perform a 5” rack lockout. Notice that when moving maximal weight, your elbows will naturally flare out to the sides. This is exactly how your elbows should be when locking out the weight. Take special notice of the bar position, in relation to where it is over your head, once you have locked out the weight. This is the position that the bar should be in a bench press. This is your strongest position and should be mimicked when bench pressing.

    A great way to practice this is with 4 and 5 board presses done with your competition grip. Remember when training your top end, do not train your triceps, train your lockout.



    *Free shipping excludes freight, flat rate and international orders.

    haven't tried it before. my hands get sweaty as hell, so I figure for $4 I might as well give it a shot.

    Fucking Gold's not allowing chalk. Bah.

    Someone at the front desk of my gym told me they banned chalk. I kept using it, and they never said anything.

    People were abusing it. Theres a chemical in it called tetrahydopepzinesuperdrol that acts like a stimulant. a couple of bumps via the nostril canal would give you mad pumps. People were benching and throwing the bar threw the roof so they had to ban it
