    there are all these fags on myspace saying "bench press should be changed to egopress" lolz. What is there reasoning for this?

    On a different note, how much is chest used in benching. One side I hear its primarily a chest exercise and other people tell he its delts and triceps.

    A PL style focuses less on the chest while the BB style hits the chest more.

    Its true though.
    If you keep bench pressing, you're only going to keep using heavier and heavier weights. Soon, you'll be bench pressing 400, then 500lbs. Where will it end? The satisfaction you'll recieve will be transient at best.

    Instead you should be happy with just benching 150lbs. And work on what's really important... your soul. And opening your heart to the love around you instead of pushing it away because deep down.... you are scared.













    I'm guess that's their reason.:mamoru:

    Why do they say bench pressing is useless?

    - Probably because they suck at it!

    While most people try to reference their strength purely be a bench press with the ever-so-popular question "what do you bench" it is still a very important lift in helping to build your chest, shoulders, triceps. Having a strong chest is important in many things you do, and is actually a pretty well-rounded lift as far as working other muscles other than the key isolation muscle (in this case, it is chest).

    Also, dont ever listen to anything you hear on a myspace nutrition and lifting forum. From what my buddies tell me, more than half those guys on there weigh less than 170lbs and would need 5 years worth of gear to bench 1.5X their weight.

    same with me bro, if it wasnt for this board i would of never been able to learn and keep lifting, i owe the last 3 years of my life to this board. and id never of dreamed of competing without it. myspace does suck, but besides the idiot trolls there its like here, usually if someone is wrong the people who know what their talking about will straighten it out.
