    Any normal man who ends their NLP unable to bench their bodyweight for reps has badly fucked up their NLP.
    Hi mate. Sorry, I think I confused this topic with another one I was writting in. Forget my comment.

    I call myself a presscialist, currently doing HLM on squat and press, and about to add in another press day... Probably a pin press day. As for bench, I bench once a week generally, sometimes every two weeks.

    I will say, I love what you said a while back: "A big presser usually has a decent bench without benching a lot, but a big bencher who doesn't press a lot will not have a big press." I'm sure I butchered it but I love it nonetheless.
