    How do you properly warm up before a max bench press? Obviously you don't want to do so much lifting in advance that you deplete your power before your max attempt.

    last time i over did my warm up before i maxed. i was going for 315 1 rep. i did the bar 10 times, then 135 5 times. rest for 30 sec, 225 3 times fast. 30 sec, 275 once, easily. then i fucking did 275 again about a minute later and it felt heavier so i was a little down, then i barely missed 315 a couple minutes later. so i am saying dont do too much before hand, or dont over warm up

    Nice bump.

    That link doesn't work, so there's not a whole lot of info here worth bumping.

    edit: Damn you, Ronin!

    I didn't actually check the link TBH. I really just felt like necromancing an ancient thread.

    Actually how did you even find this thread? It has to be the most absolute useless thread ever posted in S&P. There is literally no content in the first few posts due to the only insightful link being down.

    I just clicked "last" on the thread topic page links and looked through a few fairly quickly.
