Thread: chest pump?
02-11-2002, 11:08 PM #1
I super set bi's and tri's just started 3 weeks ago. I am getting huge pumps. they freakin hurt. all natural too. In 7 years of lifting never been like this.
When I work chest though I don't feel the same pump and I want it. I do
4 sets flat bench 6-8-10-12
3sets incline 8-10-12
3 sets dips falure
superset flat flyes 12
decline flys 12
I just wanna feel those kick ass pumps

If I did all of that before dips, I wouldn't be able to hold myself up much less get up on the dip bar, how in the hell do you do it? I have to always do my dips first, otherwise, my arms are shaking so bad, I can't hold myself up.

I think the best chest pump is when you drop the bar full with weight on your chest. Just my opinion.

I've been in the same boat bro.
The best solution I've seen, (and it came from the guy's on this forum) is to lower your weight somewhat, and get VERY strict on your form_while really squeezing on the top. It helped me to get my grip a little closer as well.
Let us know how it works........
Rock on bro!

if you want a better pump, try pre exahausting with some heavy flyes or cables

WELL I LIKE THE SUPER SETTING BI'S & TRI'S, IT IS A GREAT PUMP. AS FOR YOUR CHEST U MIGHT WANT TO TRY THIS OUT. I HAVE BEEN DOING A MODIFIED HIT PROGRAM AND I HAVE SEE GREAT SIZE & STRENGHT GAINS IN THE LAST 5 WKS, THIS IS WHAT I DO.
1. FLAT BARBELL BENCH 2 WARM UP SETS (KEEP UNDER 8 REPS, DONT DIMINISH ENERGY LEVEL.) 2 SETS 6-8 (TAKE TO FAILURE)
2. INCLINE BARBELL- 2 SETS 6-8 (TAKE TO FAILURE)
3. DB FLAT BENCH-- 2 SETS 6-8 (TAKE TO FAILURE)
4. DB OR ISO INCLINE PRESS 2 SETS 6-8 (TAKE TO FAILURE)
5. FLYES (DB, CABLE OR MACHINE) 2 SETS 6-10 REPS
6. DIPS 2 SETS 6-8 REPS
*NOW THIS MAY SEEM LIKE ALOT BUT WITH GOOD DIET YOUR WONT OVER TRAIN, BECAUSE U ARE NOT DOING HIGH REPS, SO U R NOT BURNING NEEDED ENERGY. MAKE SURE U HAVE A SPOTTER, BECAUSE U WONT TO GO HEAVY FOR 6-8 REPS (ALWAYS TAKE TO FAILURE) LAST 1 OR 2 REPS IS WHERE U R GOING TO ACHIEVE YOUR STRENGTH. IN 5 WKS I HAVE JUMP 30LBS ON MY BENCH. STARTED WITH 260 6-8 REPS, NOW @ 290LB. HOPEFULLY IN MONTH I WILL HAVE 315LBS 6-8 REPS
