    Hi , Joe . I am having the same trouble here . With legs it’s fine , not much of an issue. The high incline Smith press is were i am finding it weird.
    At the bottom position it lines perfectly with my upper chest , as i start the concentric , it’s like i am pushing up the slope and it gets away from my body . I am trying to keep the ROM less for this exercise to see if it’s easier .
    Any suggestions? Should i put the bench the other way round and see ? In this way the concentric will be more towards my head

    Thanks coach , Yes i think i can work on only the lengthened position . As i press , i feel the lean is a bit too much , so it’s getting away from my plane . I feel like a cramp on my midback when i reach towards the end range .

    Probably a good idea to stay in the lengthened range? as at the bottom the alignment is perfect

    Thanks Joe .
    I am not emotionally attached to dumbell press , though barbell i haven’t done for years and my gym dsnt have any good chest machines , otherwise would have definitely gone for a machine . Do you think supper set the dumbell press with some exercise can help , or drop sets ? I do the seated roller flys anyway as a separate exercise , anything else you can think i can super set with the dumbell press. I am just concerned about hypertrophy , so i dont even mind if i dont hit 40 kg , just don’t want to stagnate in muscle building .

    Ok thanks , my recovery is not so great cause of my work schedule. I think I’ll start with Liss and then maybe alternate it with HIIT as we go on .

    Hi Joe , I have questions on similar lines . For the longest time I did one muscle / day and I quite enjoyed it . Then I read somewhere doing a muscle group twice a week has been more beneficial so I switched to push pull lower X2 a week . Would you say doing a muscle group twice is better than once a week , or at the end of the day its just about effective volume , and exercise selection ?
