squatting doesnt make you gain chest.. But if you gain strength on squatting. Most likely it will also increase your upper body strength. Particularly bench.


dude you pretty much just said:

squatting doesnt make your chest big, but it does make your chest big

haha
Squatting increases your chest press strength. Strength you gain in chest press makes you big and not the squat itself.. thats what im pointing out.

squat is a whole body exercise. it helps you build core strength, stability and also enhance your nervous system. Core strength and good foundation helps you increase strength in different area in the body.

While I'd say that's true, the carryover to bench pressing more is minimal at best. -3X

EK, I read that warming your hips up is important when it comes to benching?
I read it in M&F magazine and was slightly skeptical, if i remember correctly the reasoning was to do with power transfer?

Any truth?

It may. I've personally never done it.

To add a bit more detail to the squat-bench thing, most competitive lighter bench specialists hardly train their legs. When I won my first national title, I benched 342 at 130 pound bw with a broken leg and torn ACL and MCL- I didn't squat at all for 8 months before the meet. -3X

I found a small article to somewhat backup my allegations.

@jonrivs49 give me a bit to dig them back up, but the bulk of the literature suggests hormonal differences from squatting and any other movement are negligible. There's some literature that suggests biceps curls have an equal or greater effect on GH and test. Either way, the minimal boost is so short-lived, it won't make a difference. I posted the research in a thread here somewhere, but it's going to take me a bit to find it. -3X

@EK.. Core strength and improvement in the Nervous System that is build by squatting what makes me believe in increasing your bench and also in overall strength.

Perhaps- but not to the degree that you believe. In terms of CNS adaptation, your body has hundreds of thousands of individual motor neurons that innervate muscle fibers. Increasing the efficiency of one (or even one group) does not necessarily equate to better efficiency of others. If that was the case, people who only bench and never squat would be able to see at least minimal improvements in their leg strength relative to what they gain benching.

Re. The hormonal response, from a broscience article by Layne: "Specifically, high volume bouts of exercise that recruit large muscle groups and require a high degree of effort will elevate GH significantly (~10 fold) for approximately 40 minutes (5). However, while these pieces of information raise interesting possibilities for GH, none of them actually conclusively demonstrate that physiological increases in GH are anabolic."

He actually found out that exercise induced cortisol was more closely linked to total body size and strength gains than test, IGF-1, or GH. -3X

You have a half hour window to fap after you work out to boost test levels to maximize gains...

Would be hillarious to see the guys finish their lifts and run to the bathroom or back to their cars...would also be really disturbing
