I like the bench style, used to do a similar pyramid up and down style.

Thankyou I learnt it from my dad -he was a powerlifter, almost always would go up to do heavy work/singles but then finish on a few back up sets of volume for growth:)

Three nice easy peasy warmups on bench press with 60kg, 80kg and 100kg the 1st working set on 120kg. And an explanation on how I intend to do this workout today. The moving on to Sets 2,3,4,5, 6,7,8 and 9 on 120kg (264lb) bench press.- my back off sets being 20rep, 26reps and 21reps on 80kg.Having finished my backoff sets on the straight bar it's time to stretch and finish off with a little pump up on the cambered bar. 50kg 10reps 1st setHaving a quick rest after my first set on cambered bar, I take the chance to explain the value of using this type of bar.2nd set on the cambered bar with this time 16reps feeling much more stretched off and flexibleChest workout over and done time to do some abs!!!

'Bout time you got back here lol. Here in the States those things came out in the 1970's I think. Often called "the MacDonald Bar" after a Bench Press specialist of that era named Mike MacDonald. Early on he popularized it, probably profited from its sales, AND added to its promotion by saying you could also use it turned upside down to mimic what is today called "board presses." It was specifically made for Benching; the camber was a little too narrow to use for Squats. You sure do like those high reps.
