      Question about pause bench.

      I mean as far as aesthetics, but I guess that's true for anyone. But as an example, I always read that "you don't have to do curls to get bigger arms, just row heavy..." that never rang true for me,...

      I think you're right. There's not enough work at the heavy weights. When I was doing the other rep scheme I posted, I was up to 3x6 with 210. Then I missed some gym time due to being sick, and when I...
