  • stretching question

    Is it the weight thats the measure or the time limit the thing?-in other words,do you start with about 70% of your max and work up to the 60 seconds or do you start with what you can hold for 60 seconds and then increase the weight over time??-Referring specifically to chest stretch-Thanks-PS-when starting DC style should one be the sorest he's ever been and/or so tired that I can't stay awake after training-I sure love the change but damn-no wonder few people train at this level:showoff:
    Livin' for the pump

    I personally start with what I can use for 60 sec. and then gradually increase the weights. I can now use 44 pounds for the chest stretch for 60 sec.

      I started off with a weight i thought i could get for 60. I got 30, 40, 50 and today i finally got 60. Now i'll move the weight up and try for 60 again. Really hurts.

          the chest stretch is by far the most painful.

            Well when you start off the first time you will need to find your weight, once you hit 60 move up at least 5 lbs, til you hit 60 then move up again, of course during the cruise I drop each one to 80% of max, then at the new blast I need to work my way back up...

              Do you guys feel that chest stretch in the shoulders? Im sure you do. Ive got strained rotator cuffs, so its a pain in the ass. I can feel the shoulders just go. Then when i let go of the weight shoulder movement is limited for about 10 seconds.

                Once my stretching weights began to climb, I occasionally felt some stress on the shoulders as well. While on my cruise, I've experimented with using Iron Grip plates ( if you're not sure what I'm talking about) to stretch with. Thus far, they've been amazing. I feel a more intense pec stretch without any shoulder stress. The only problem is, is that you're limited to 45 lbs.

                  I do pretty much what all the guys here are saying, when I can hit 60 seconds with a stretch I bump the weight up
