    Ill do 5 sets of 5 on bench, superset with 5 sets of 12 on flys.

    so very heavy on bench, with moderate weight on decline.

    If i do it on incline, id do it at the end, and go high reps with both.....

    ever do trisets?

    same concept has a superset, only 3 times..

    I love doing them to conclude my chest, when i still fill like i got something left in the tank, and want to completed tear it up..

    ex.

    Ill line 3 sets of dumbbells up, do 1 set of flat dumbbell press, followed by 1 set of incline flys, followed by 1 set of decline dumbbell press...
    and to me, all that, is 1 set. not 3. Its one giant set.

    And that isnt set. can be any 3 that you like.. if i feel like my upper pec is needing more work, ill do something like incline, incline flys, and machine bench incline.

    Like i said, i typically do it to end a workout...

    sometimes on triceps ill do cable pull down, , followed by over head cable extension, both hands. then cable ext. one arm at a time triset...

    i love them, in moderation, to really kill a body part.

    cant do them all the time, or will over train.. maybe once every 3-4 workouts for that muscle.

    Really seeing alot of size and strength improvement.

    funny though, the slowest muscle group to respond is chest, which used to be my easiest best muscle group... but its still improving pretty well.

    main problem so far is my massive belly (you can tell i lift still, and i think my v is coming back ), and trying to clean up my diet...

    diet is MUCH improved, but still crappy....

    I'll never do a behind the neck pulldown. Both of my HS Football coaches have never allowed us to do so, and have told us stories about injuries they've witnessed and gotten a lawsuit for. I have heard from alot of trainers and some of my friends as well as my brother in law that i shouldn't do them .

    There a great exercise, IMO. ALOT of people will also say, dont go beyond 90 degrees on bench, dont do full ROM. Dont lift heavy, its bad for you. Dont go all the way down on shoulder presses. etc, etc. etc. Everything is bad.
    Dont grill, the burning effect can cause cancer. Dont stay in the sun, it can cause cancer. Dont drink to much water, it can cause water toxicity. etc. etc.

    I see what your saying, but i disagree. You can get hurt from almost any lift.

    Yea i know. On top of what i've heard, though, i don't like the way it feels. There are just some exercises that i don't feel very comfortable doing and therefore i stop. Believe me, if i like doing something, i'll do it no matter what. I'm the argumentative type, i try to dismiss any weak premise that anyone else presesnts to keep me from doing something i like. I know there are alternatives to that exercise so i'd rather go that route. I don't think my body was meant to do that one exercise haha. I think it's the only one i don't like or just refuse to.

    They are a great exercise when done correctly. I use them to finish up a back work out and love the feeling.

    I haven't done them in a while myself because of the potential dangers. I used to do them religiously.
