    Question Repping 225 on incline

    Just wondering, if I can do a double on 225 on barbell inclines, how many lbs do you bros think I can double on DB incline? My gyms DBs only go up to 80's. Never tried inclines on the 80's either. Sucks.

    Peace.

    hm.. well, i do 100's for a triple on incline.. and i don't do barbell incline that often but last time i did 205 for 7, so i would imagine i'm probably at like 3-4 reps with 225. That give you any help?

    Yeah 100's seems about right. I used to have this thoery that a person can DB press what he can BB press...minus the bar.

    Thanks bros.

    Ive done 435 on incline before. I got greedy and tried 450 strictly for bragging rights and I realized what 15lbs more felt like. It was a f*cking mess. Noone could even get it off of me. I had 3 spotters fighting a sinking barbell. Thats why I honestly believe there is no reason to go extremely heavy on inclines anymore. I'm strictly a powerlifter,but ill say thats a no no.

    I haven't benched for over a year because of a poped ac joint. My shoulder has been completly healed for 6months but I benched last nite for the first time with no pain and i did 244lbs for 10reps, hopefully the weight will fly up over the next few weeks. I have been dumbell pressing for months though, last week i did 120lbs dumbells for 8reps.

    You've got to remember that your muscle is doing more when you are working with DB's. Not only is it lifting the weight, but it is keeping it steady too. When doing BB press you don't have this extra stress hence the extra poundage ability. :spudnik4:

    I almost never do barbell pressing anymore. Using dbells for inclines (and almost everything else) I don't exceed 100's, mostly going 75-95 for sets of 8-12. It's hard to make a fair comparison between what you can do with dbells and what you can do with a barbell unless you train both regularily. I could probably put up 110's 5 or six times but I wouldn't wanna bet that I could put up 225 on a barbell any more than a couple of times.

    I hardly ever do bar bell anything. But my last set on incline DB is 105lbs DBs. And my last set when i did barbell about 2 weeks ago was 225. So id say you could probably do 105. But I dont know. I find that people who do BB more often arent very good with their DB. I do DB for flat aswell and finish with 140lbs DBs, but I can only do 275 6 times on BB.

    Not if you're training for strength and not size.

    I've always used low reps. I'm a lot stronger then anyone would think when they look at me,because of it. If I would have trained the other way around I wouldn't be suprised if I was bigger,but thats my own way I enjoy training.

    Whoever says doing low reps doesnt do anything is wrong. JMO I'm far from a monster but at 230 pounds I bench over 500 and thats all natty. My personal belief is that if most people trained with a few lower reps everyonce in awhile they wouldnt be so down on the idea of using them.

    Like BDTR stated, it's for strength,but at the same time your not going to get a lot out of gaining strength if you dont gain some size. I personally feel that has a lot more to do with diet then it doesnt training method.

    I've worked with WSB and MM. It's a whole different perspective of working out when your training to get stronger instead of to gain overall body development.

    It's a never ending arguement as far as strength vs muscle. You just have to make that choice and stick with it for awhile. Like everything else I think there is a sort of art to maxing out. If you train heavy and low reps sometimes even singles, then I feel your going to perform better when you attempt a M.E.

    Then again this all comes from a powerlifter's perspective...

    Ive pressed 415 on incline for reps. When I worked out at my old gym(popeyes gym) i was pressing the 150 DB on incline. I never really liked pressing with DB

    Currently My gym only has 75lbs db (only place around) But in the past I was doing 100lbdb for reps. No need to go any higher for fear of injury. As for decadbal 2reps only a waste? Try telling that to Dorian Yates, yes controversial but if nothing else it does build grip strength.
