wow what a realization
I've been doing too much weight with horrible form. Used to do 225 on incline for 10 reps bad form. Started doing 145 and doing a negative for 6 seconds then going up in 4 seconds. My upper chest which I could never move is buringing like hell right now. A friend of mine does this on every set adn every body part and has grown like crazy and gotten very vascular. I found my new workout.

never sacrifice form for weight.

are 4 second positves the way to go? I always heard, slow negatives, explosive positives...

Slow controled positive, and 4 to 6 second negative made all the difference for me.

Didnt realize you could have bad form on bench, especially incline. I always just bring the bar down slowly, and stop it right before my chest and explode back up. I think my chest strength is spready fairly well since my arms dont fall behind one another.

I might try this every other week.

BTW... those numbers are written in sec like this: eccentric(negative) - extended(bottom) - concentric (positive) - contraction(top)

This principal is along the lines of H.I.T. where strict form and controlled slow movements are harder than slinging more weight with zero form.
This brings into account that in H.I.T. you are basically doing 1 workout every week or until you are rested. I used the principals of H.I.T. but Dorian's version of it and if anyone saw his video you see controlled movements, not so much negatives but no rocking or swinging or any BS like that. Control up and down. I have found better strength and size gains while doing movements in this manner.

It's humbling for sure, but what I've been telling people since I started training this way is that I used to train so that people would stare in awe while I was in the gym, now I train so that people will stare in awe while I am outside of the gym. Big difference.
