    The second one but they are rarely used in the strength community.

    Is that meant to be a power and strength routine 'cos it doesn't look like one. This is the power and strength forum.

    use google as much as possible mate. Try 'eccentric training' and read up! - otherwise we send mobster round!!

    It sounds harsh but what was presented is a classic chest routine used by bodybuilders and a low rep and or set (my personal preference) BB bench preceding flyes etc isn't the way to go. Most here do very specific work with a few adding in some Westside tricks (board and floor presses for example) as a means of more bench power. The rare few that use flyes would do so only if they felt a weakness could be strengthened by such a movement. A quick look, as per Supermicks suggestion at any similar athletes sites will not throw up a routine like that suggested and with good reason.

    Agreed, i was merely pointing out a resource where he could go and take a butchers himself. Eccentric specific work has no place in my training either but the site in question does give things from a 'more' BBing point of view imo.
