    P.s. It also shows shotgun to the D* as pump work at the end of every day/every workout.

    Wondering about this also

    Great question I was wondering the same. Also, seat placement.

    Does having the seat set lower give it a different resistance profile and have a bit more of a drop off in load at the bottom?

    And is it better to keep a neutral grip or to supinate at the bottom? Supination at the bottom I can feel the lat contract and shorten a little harder, but feel like I handle less load this way.

    [quote quote=19315]Is this the Swiss bar that you guys use from elite fts? Linked a screen shot below.

    Also Are there any particular knee sleeves you’d recommend ?

    Yes! That is the exact one. And I use the knee sleeves from Redcon1[/quote]

    Awesome thanks. I was also looking into getting some prime wedges for heel elevated squats. Which degree of incline do you recommend?

    [quote quote=19228]Any reason why flat presses could cause such pain in AC joint but no other presses? Any other angle press causes no pain at all. Low incline press up to seated military press are all pain free, but any flat press pronated or neutral grip all causes pain.

    The answer is: it doesn’t really matter why. Some “smart people” will try to make up exact answers why, but they should really frame it as “here’s possible reasons”. So, the possible reasons are: shoulder joint structure, and ROM (a combo or structure and muscles active contractile range), are very individual. And what’s occurring in “flat” positions is a combination of those that doesn’t happen exactly the same way anywhere else. (So maybe it’s because of the exact amount of internal rotation, combined with the exact amount of abduction, combined with the ROM your using, as well as the amount of sub-acromial space that occurs at any part of the ROM). All those things add up to something that your body doesn’t like. Soooooo, back to what I said originally: it really doesn’t matter why. And I think you know the answer here. Just don’t flat press. The notion that you “HAVE TO” do any exact exercise/motion/position/ROM very antiquated. And doesn’t follow any logical thought process (unless you’re a powerlifter and it’s part of your sport). Think muscles, joints, and personal pain-free ROMs where you’re can train, and you’ll have more than enough options to grow. And I’m speak from personal experience here as well. I continued doing flat bench press for another 5 years after I first injured myself doing it. And only after a separated shoulder did I stop (yes. I’m that dumb). If you’re a bodybuilder, the exact tool doesn’t matter at all. So don’t be attached to anything. As for me, I’ve had zero shoulder issues, and the most chest progress since realizing all that. Hope that helps! [/quote]

    Very helpful thank you. I appreciate you guys and what you do and for taking the time to educate, answer questions, and deliver the best content out there. Thanks again.

    When setting protein at 1.2g/lb of bw, would this be total daily macro intake accounting for grams of protein that come from all food sources (rice oats pasta etc)?
    Or would you recommend hitting your 1.2g protein requirement from animal/complete protein sources and not tracking the protein from carb sources.
    I usually go for total daily macros, but notice as carbs increase a little less of my protein intake is from animal / complete proteins.
