Is it better for normal strength training/mass building to bring the weights down to form a 90 degree angle or to go all the way down to your chest? Or a mixture of both? I've heard regularly going down to your chest can hurt your shoulders. Also when I lift I use this routine; 135lbs 10x, 155lbs 8x, 185lbs 6x, 200 4x, then 200+ 2x. Is this a good routine to go for improvements or should I use a different routine? After is do this I usually go back to 135lbs and go for max reps... I know if you maxing out you are supposed to go down to your chest. Also I've been lifting for about two month semi regularly. I weigh roughly 165/170 lbs. Going all the way down to my chest I can bench 200lbs. If I'm just making a 90 degree angle I can bench 260 lbs. Is this doing pretty good for my body weight two months in or do I have a lot of improving to do? Thnx for helping a noob.
