  2. Feels awesome! Thanks man. I just felt like they were there so went for it. Its kinda funny my knee was kinda bugging me a little bit before hitting the gym but it didnt give me any trouble while lifting.

    Yeah, the big 3, or OHP or whatever your main movement is for the day if it's closely related to the big 3. It was actually developed based on the Olympic lifts, but Louie Simmons and others have used it successfully in powerlifting.

    The one thing that I'll do different from the chart is that in the 60-70% range, I'll usually do 28-40 reps for upper body. For hypertrophy in an off season phase I'd edge just a little above the chart, but only in the 60-70% range.

    Anytime, brother. Easiest is to pick a proven program and run it. After about a year of having the thinking taken care of for you, you'll be able to naturally fall into programming for yourself. Knowing you like submaximal volume, I'd recommend Juggernaut or Cube Kingpin.

    All of this.


    I ran Juggernaut and wasn't a big fan personally, but I don't care for submax work by itself.

    Cube is always a good bet, as long as you can tolerate the deadlift volume.

  10. Mid-workout update. Delt veins are coming nicely. Thats exciting. Never had those before lol

  11. Look at you and your PRs. Nice work man.

  16. Looking Good Chris! Nice shoulders, and you have the appearance like you have a pretty thick back even though I can't see it.

  17. Yeah i think ill have my wife take pictures front side and back here in a few weeks. Im happy with how i look right now. Could go a little leaner. But my wife is pregnant and keeps coming home with junk food and i cant keep myself from eating everything in sight so its probably gonna be a while before i start cutting lol

    If you can maintain your current BF you can probably add some size while she is doing that. If you don't have something specific to be at a certain weight I would just keep working on that strength and eating as good as possible but a little relaxed. It always helps the wife when she feels she isn't alone on everything so joining in every once in a while is a good thing IMHO.

    Nice!!!! I loved RAD, that stuff treated me very nicely! DMZ is the bomb too! You should definitely be adding some size, and no wonder those PR's are dropping like flies!

  22. Yeah im definitely happy with where im at. Most of the gains actually came from just eating a ton and lifting heavy. My bench went from 245 1rm to 275 for 2 in 2 months all natty. This is my first cycle on anything like sarms or ph's.

  23. Damn man You are built. You learn how to squat and pull and you'll really be moving some weight.

    Thanks man. Yeah im really trying to up my numbers on squat and deadlift. Although i just reached some big goals of mine (bench over 300, squat over 400, and deadlift over 500) im not even close to satisfied. Since joining this forum my 415 pound squat seems fairly paltry. And 515 pound deadlift is better but still seems alot smaller than it did before i hit it. My goals now are squat over 500 and deadlift over 600. And bench over 400. Some good goals to keep me busy for a while and as long as my numbers keep going up slowly but surely ill be able to stay excited about it. I still get excited about every rep PR and every 5 or 10 pounds i add to each lift.

  25. Getting excited and anxious waiting for stuff to come in the mail. Got an 11 pound bag of protein from myprotein.com along with a bag of bcaa's. Gonna be logging 24 hour pump (or monopump, not quite sure) from nutraceutical innovations so i got that on the way too. Got some samples of rise and swell from mind and muscle coming and just won a tub of controlled labs white flood too. Got all kinds of goodies on the way. Stoked. Seriously wasnt expecting all the cool opportunities when i joined this forum.
