  • How does everyone do there bench press? Whats the proper form? See I heard it was keep your elbows in, instead of flexing them out. The reason was when you push someone to you have your elbows out to the side, or do you keep them in and push someone.

      When I eat, it is the food that is scared.

        I'm really not sure since it depends on the person. Go with 3 sets of 20/20/ Failure. Then try to do some chair pushups or elevated push ups.

              Me losing ten pounds would make me 160 at 6 foot tall. I don't think I could either, especially gaining mass though lifting. I'll try though. How would we know no one is cheating? I'm probably the least likely here to lose 10 pounds so I'll be completely honest.

                • I've lost 8 pounds in the past 2 weeks, but it will probably get a lot tougher now that I'm in the mid 150's.

                  • Today I did:

                    Biceps
                    Pullups (underhand) - 1 set of 10, 2 sets of 8
                    Preacher curls - 45 x 10, 55 x 8, 65 x 6
                    Hammer curls - 35 x 10, 40 x 8
                    Incline curls - 20 x 10, 20 x 10

                    Triceps
                    Close grip benchpress - 135 x 10, 155 x 8, 175 x 6, 185 x 4
                    Skullcrushers (dumbbell) - 50 x 10, 60 x 8, 70 x 5
                    Dips - 3 sets of 10
                    Cable pulldowns - 120 x 10, 140 x 8

                    I also played with the wrist roller and destroyed my forearms in between workouts. I'm feeling pretty good right now.

                      • bout to go hit the field for my ghetto workout:

                        10 Forty yard sprints with a chute
                        There's a pretty steep hill that's about a 15 yard ruck, that i'll run about 20 times.
                        Some push-ups and sit-ups/crunches

                        and to top it off i'm going to push this god-awful tire around the field for about 100-150 yds.

                        RIP ST

                          I can lose 10 lbs in a weekend if I have to. It's not in a healthy or long lasting way but it can be done

                              That sounds impossible, have you or someone you know done it? That'd be incredible.

                              • its possible. I used to box and are good friends with tons of really good boxers. You can cut that in water weight. Its really stupid tho and the weight comes right back on anyway.

                                Maybe the caveat should be that your max bench cant go down or something.

                                And we can just make it an honor system. Its not that big of a deal really.
