Great progress mate, good stuff:)
If your close to maxing out equipment such as a pec deck, slow your rep cadence down, reduce it to a 2-4 second positive, 2 second hold in the contracted position, then a 4 second negative.
(John Martini had me do this one) Use you normal rep cadence, however on every 2nd or 3rd rep, perform a superslow negative, changes everything:)
so simple yet i didnt even think of this! cheers mate, maybe could do the jreps kinda thing too?. my pecs are effin killing already from this morning, painful day tomoro i thinks!
Yes mate, you could use J-rep reps or 1 1/4 reps, that why you'd be achieving more contractions per unit of time (as well as solving the issue that many Hitters come across...ie lack of resistance:) But hold off on that until you've no where else to go, when the progress train is in motion, don't through anything on the tracks.
Oh the DOMS are good aren't they lol, that's one draw back from training your muscles so infrequently, longer recovery times permits for a greater level of performance, which in turn results in a deeper level of fatigue, but that's a trade off i'd rather have.
Have a great week mate:)
