    Default Big pump

    I was told to try something from one of the big guys at work a few weeks ago so did this morning..

    At the end of my regular chest workout, I tried to push out 100 reps on the flat bench. I was warned not to put too much weight on. I threw on a massive 5 kgs in total. Feels pretty weird after the first 30 reps but then the burn kicks in at rep 50, by rep 65 the pump is huge and it's bloody hard to make the 100 mark..
    I fell short at 87...
    Best pump ever..
    Gonna be sore tomorrow..

    Wouldn't pushups be just as effective?

    So, what's the point of a 'pump'? Is it of any benefit, or just to make you feel hooge?

    You are new to this? The pump stretches the fascia which therefore creates room for growth. It's the reason why Hany Rambod's FST-7 is so popular now. It also removes waste products from the worked muscle.

    Not new to training, but I've never done a bodybuilding routine. I've never seen a strength routine call for getting a pump, so I've never tried it.

    "Engorge to grow" words to live by.

    i done 26.5kg total weight for 95 reps before in 2010 ridiculous pump. Felt good, they were forced as well with few second breaks between reps as it just gets nuts how stuffed you get. Always wanted to get 50kgx50 but never did. Did 60kgx32 though and 50kgx43reps from memory. Will have to film trying myself attempting 40kg (close to half my bodyweight) for max reps :P
