Best Chest Press Today :)

#1 Postby robert » Tue Sep 13, 2005 10:11 pm

It was actually yesterday....but I had my best set of dumbbell chest press ever!

In the past I've used 100's in each hand (I know not that heavy, but heavy for me!) and I've been able to do 4-6 reps. I've also pressed 100's in each hand for incline press.

So yesterday I was doing dumbbell chest press and I got 8 solid reps (new personal best). So I bet I could try 105's in the near future and squeeze out 2-5 reps. I was doing incline and just used 80's in each hand and it felt pretty easy, I'm sure I'm cabable of incline pressing 100's again like I did back in 2003.

Just wanted to share that, it seems like I'm slowly getting stronger. I always say that I've never been known for my strength, just my "look" as a bodybuilder and fitness athlete.

So 105's........bring it on!

That's great man. 100's are plenty heavy.

Thanks guys,

I know many of you are much BIGGER and STRONGER than I am, but it felt like a good day of training. I think 100 for each hand/wrist and arm to handle is a pretty good, but I hope to keep moving up.

I'll try for more new record lifts and I'll post them.

Thanks for the support!
