Similar. The cables lift the weights.
The actual Bench Press would have the guy lying flat on his back.

It is a lot, but I also keep the weight down on my other exercises .. My chest was weak as hell when I was younger, so I've been looking to get it a lot stronger over the years

Rain on my parade

I do a lot of cardio actually, and have cut down on the crappy foods I ate, all of it together has worked nicely for me

Speaking of which, I have yoga tomorrow night and hockey right after .. Thursday might be sore

I used to research about building muscle when I was younger and taught myself about muscle fibers and pretty much everything building muscle related.

Higher reps does equal more toning but not 20 reps in one shot like Bert is doing with a still fairly heavy weight.

Do 5 sets of 10 bench press with 140lbs. That is for toning.

Combining it with cardio is the best. thats why the p90x type stuff works so well.

High heart rate while doing strength exercises.

Trust me I know. Learning about building muscle was a big interest to me in highschool and researched*everything about it. Im not sure why though but I know as much as all personal trainers know.

Yea, toned = low body fat %. You get that by eating well and doing cardio to get rid of the fat.

Lifting is for building your muscles.

True, but not 100% true because of muscle memory.

Getting back to the gym after I broke my right hand a couple years ago was tough ... Getting a strong grip plus the strength and flexibility in my wrist took awhile

I have had to rehab my back, and both shoulders.

You feel like a wimp when they have you lifting 5lb weights and after 4 or 5 reps **** starts to hurt.
