    225 is probably around 75-80% maybe. I didn’t bother to figure it out. I almost never go by percentage and I also almost never go for a 1rm.
    225 was as high as I went today, did 3 sets of 4 at that weight and then back down

    I usually like to see above 80% to judge technique but for guys who are new to being coached I start with the bar anyway.

    Just a question to anybody who benches.
    When you extend(lift). Do your Tris do the work? Do you keep your chest pushed out? I've seen some people sink in their chest at the end of the extension (lift).
    I've always kept my chest pushed out and I've never felt like I exhaust my chest. But my Tris feel like theyve been out through a blender.

    So my Tris give out before I feel like I worked out my chest.
    I went somewhat heavy(for me) 2 weeks ago. And I payed the price. The joint POB mentioned definitely hurt like an injury that hasn't healed or will heal for a week.

    And damn it I loved every painfully second of that week.

    Ok I lied. I hated it while trying to sleep. I have to extend my arm out at shoulder height and place my opposite side ear to my shoulder. To keep that part of my body stretched and not feel tight. All while hoping I get some sleep.

    Im going to leave this up to pillar, the only issue I’d have with it being put up for public view is you always end up getting multiple opinions on what they are watching...and not that I don’t value most guys opinions here, I think it would be best if for now it was just pillar giving his.

    Just my 2 cents on it

    Probably best to be coached in private. I'm sure PoB can post something up on proper form at some point if he has time.

    I did one with the bar and a full set with one plate. I’ve never tried maxing since I get shoulder pain and my mechanics are crap. (Hence me starting the thread)

    Anything over 150 becomes all front delts and bad technique. Based on my experience level and what I do on machines, I should be in the 200-225 range. Who knows, we’ll see....
