haha defo not bat style, i cant do over 10 like that, its hard to go to failure because i have to do a sit up to get down...... cuz im hooked by my feet on a chin up bar so its kinda dogy incase i get stuck haha :lol: they were jus normal ones on the floor with my feet up :D

i love the feeling of higher reps, ive never really got on with less than 12 reps, the pump and burn on high reps is amazing! give it go!

its feeling ok thanks mate i just dont wanna over do it, its nice just to be able to bench anything after the last couple of years!

Over the christmas holidays when my gyms closed I may try some bat sit ups on my pull up bar, it will end badly haha
I like doing one set of high reps/low weight after 4 or 5 sets of heavy weight/low reps I still get that pump its great! high reps with deadlifts is a good pump!
glad it's not hindering you then mate, my step dads boss messed up one side of his pecs in a similar manner ages ago but wont train anymore.

bat ups are the way :lol: feel like rocky when im doing them, haha youll be fine..... i love that pumped feeling its awesome, wish i could feel like that allday! i would love to do deadlifts but i just cant get a good technique going, heard people with long legs arent suited to them so maybe its that. mind you your 6ft arent ya?

well I'm 5 11" and a bit, so pretty much 6ft haha, I put off doing them for a while because there's a lot of technique involved and it felt like a chore.. but once I did them I loved them and now I genuinely look forward to deadlifting, I started out practising with a 25Kg barbell and watched loads of minis vids and other vids on youtube to get it right, it does take a while but goddam it's worth it :D

i might do what you did and just practice loads with an empty bar, i used to do them but i didnt bother with technique much then. they are definately a good exercise, maybe my traps will actually grow then :lol:

i think ive just had four really good sessions where ive made progress and ached for days after, and then one workout not as good, makes you think it was crap.

how was your night out mate? hangover? :lol:
