God I'd be on 500 test e 400 mast e 400 tren e insulin gh superdrol ****ing year round DNP once in a while tryhard diet mode gtfo if I was actually making any money off of fitness.


You suck and you're a ****head if you're NOT scamming fish into believing it was the otc supplements that got you ripped and not the steroids if you work at a nutrition store rofl lmao rofl. Same as poker, wealth transfer from the idiot dreamer 2 iqs to the pragmatic systematizing aspies like ourselves.

Evoken: I only work there once a week for the discount I could give a **** less about my sales. Last Sunday I worked there alone and made the store $1500 without pushing products/ trying hard.

Actually this job makes it super easy to get my meals in. We have an hour break every day and 15 min breaks every 2 hours.

Are your arms supposed to be 90 degrees (horizontally) like that? Looks impingey. Really asking though.

I was looking at my other incline videos and this was back in 2014.. I did the same thing. I am probably working more shoulders than anything else.

EV, is not going all the way down and not locking out at the top done for any reason other than habit?

Also, I agree with Renton that your elbows are too flared.

Is anyone surprised at all?

fwiw I don't think flare is necessarily terrible on incline in particular; you do incline generally to focus on upper chest because it's a tough area to hit and flaring, at least for me, definitely activates more chest and triceps. Shoulders about the same.


but ffs stop ego lifting and full rom kid. Don't do mental gymnastics justifying yourself, drop 20lbs each side and go down all the way.

I pointed that out too, but I think that might be some kind of broscience-y "don't lock out and keep the muscles under constant tension" BS that's incepted it's way into the orange matter in his brain from years of BB.com. Obviously it doesn't make a ton of sense when you pair it with cutting off ROM at the bottom, but ego lifters gonna ego lifter (and assani cape).

Agree that between the two, lockout is the smaller rock. But by the same token, it's the easiest to remedy for more gains so whynotboth

I flare all my incline dumbells. It's pectacular but have to be careful to keep shoulders down and back or game over. ROM looks okay, top is all triceps anyways.

Clearly you guys don't know what ego lifting is. I lift optimally. There is a difference. That's like telling me to correct my bicep curls NEED to go up all the way. Pls.

Full ROM isn't optimal? Why not?

What do you see as optimal about partial ROM? How is partial ROM more optimal than full ROM? Real questions.

Lol are we seriously still talking about this? There's no way thinking in terms of "optimal" is going to help us here.

Bodybuilders have been using partial ROMs successfully ever since the beginning of the sport. Why's that so hard for all of you to accept?

EV has been, at best, the same size since this log started three and a half years ago, so I disagree that the question isn't relevant, but ok.

I'd love to see you neckbeards go all 2p2 on guys like Franco Columbo telling him how he really needs to lock out those bench presses too cause he's ego lifting and really missing out on the real thing

If that is the proper metric here how are you in a position to give advice on any of this?

(not trying to be mean here, just trying to point out the sillyness of all every one in here thinking they know their **** despite of not looking anywhere near impressive, and still supposedly being 100% right and OP being 100% wrong while in reality maybe it's like a 52/48 and it's really not going to change a damn thing)

That's way more ROM than our hero. I don't consider those partials at all, he's just leaving out like the top 1.5 inches; the bottom is the most important on pressing motions for shoulders/pecs.
