what's your weekly routine look like?
- 06-14-2006, 06:15 PM
chest and shoulders
incline and decline same
2 sets each weigh on shoulders i.e 50's twice and 65's twice

so roughly you do 32 sets between flat, incline and decline?

next thing i would suggest is start working with heavier weight now. staying with 185 isn't going to help anything. each week add 10lbs and max out the set with as many reps as you can get. once you reach a 1RM, take it back to 75% and work your way back up in the same fashion. little something called 'progressive overload'.
