    hi, a lil new to this partiular forum, but i have lil question, i notice that after i lift i tend to get bruising around my shoulderblade area, and i was wondering if this is normal or if i can correct this, it doesnt bother me but it is quite unsightly (blue/green) its about 2-3 in diameter

    Maybe the padding on your bench sucks? I can't think of anything besides presses that have that part of your back touching something. Exspecially hard enough to bruise.

    heres my upper body workout, i usually do it 3 maybe 4 times a week, the bruising doesnt hurt at all, i was wondering if this is a normal thing or if this might be a technique problem

    truthfully i dont know, i'm going to guess bench is just because of the placement of the bruising

    bench
    10x135
    10x185
    10,8,6,4,2x225
    10x185
    15-20x135
    tricep pull down
    3sets 10xplate 15
    curl
    10x75
    10x85
    10x95-105
    10x85
    10x75
    Lateral pulldown
    3x10x plate 12-14
    Seated row
    3x10x plate 12-14
    military press
    5x5 95->145 10 pounds up each set
    unknown name (plates on one side of a bar, w/ the empty side in the corner of a wall joint, and i pick it up while in a squating position, straddling the bar facing away from the wall)
    10x75
    10x115
    10x140
    10x185
    10x220
    unknown name ( same set up before except i i'm facing the wall, and in a squating position pusing it away from my chest, somewhat similar to standing bench, or standing dumbell flys, but not quite, it helps w/ pummeling in wrestling)
    2 sets of ten, for each arm, 95lbs


    the padding is fine because sometimes i only bruise on one side of my back, for example only my right side is bruised right now

    if u do that workout 3 or 4 times a week I would say your doing more damage than good... And tell me those bench sets are varied amongst incline and decline as well?
