    Hi I started the conjugated periodisation workout given by bigbang in another thread.

    Got to my max effort bench day and set up the power rack for floor press.. Got underneath it and the lowest pin setting was still too high for me to grab the bar and have my elbows on the floor.

    Is this how its supposed to be? I would have thought you should have the bar a little lower than the height of your forearms so someone just stands over you and dumps the bar into your hands.

    If i'm right how any ideas how to do it given that I can't use the power rack?

    If I'm wrong how the hell do you do it?

    Thanks,
    Adma.

    Which workout were you using? I'm asking because I've been constantly modifying it, so I'm not sure which version you're using. BTW, I wouldn't recommend using my routine, as it's in the expiremental phase, and it may not work. I would suggest building a tried-and-true routine off of Dave Tate's "The Eight Keys" article series.

    sorry..

    wasn't very clear. You gave a link to a basic westside article and I'm using that.. Not your routine.
