comment I need an effective excercise for wings/chest
@Greg - I agree, I switch from chin up to pull up to neutral position - to keep things interesting and to focus on different muscles.

comment Day off from training…how to mentally relax
I like the list of warning signs - some of them I fall into (working out alone, working out injured/sick) - and I know you're right about where the stress is coming from...but, the the day off from exercising seems to be adding to it

@Ryan - part of the plan, I feel I could do 7 days...even when I feel a little tired, but choose not to.......

comment Day off from training…how to mentally relax
I don't think I'm at a point where I need a therapist.....if I was working out 7 days a week, 2 times a day...then I would (if I had the energy) seek help

@Ryan - anxiety mostly - I do east less, but that's just because I'm not burning/hungry as much

comment Improving my Bench Press - what muscles are used during what phase?
great articles - two good points: plyometric training to increase off-chest power (I think that could be it) and eccentric focus (letting it down slow)...thanks!

comment Improving my Bench Press - what muscles are used during what phase?
If I can identify the muscles/weak points, I would train them separately. I've been working on form and went from 180 to 220 in a week (clean single bench press) - now I'm looking to take it to the next level (over time of course)
