    Your gains are that of something like superdrol. Given you can run this longer, the end results will probably be about the same. Crazy

    Nice work man,I usually take very little time in between sets.A lot of times I go straight from one lift to the next.

    Also hoping that due to being able to run this longer they will be easier to keep.

    That's exactly what I do,I usually have caught my breathe by the time I change my weight or get what I need ready,hich I do quickly anyways.Only thing I take a good minute is squats and bench.Deads of course and other major lifts when doing the but not doing deads lately.

    Load and exercise determine how much rest I take. Sometimes I don't even catch my breath if it's light.

    Ya its out of control at my gym. I work there and there is nothing i can do. Ive seen people do wrist curls in the power rack also......makes me sick

    took extra long to get the shoulder warmed up today but was able to get a good workout in.

    rotator cuff warm up
    attempt at db press 60x12 but didnt feel good so I switched things up a bit
    face pulls 4 sets of 15
    pec dec rear delt flys 4 sets of 15
    lat raises 5 sets of 20
    barbell shoulder press
    135x10
    135x12
    145x10
    155x10
    165x6
    135x22.5 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9UI1W3yhT1s&feature=plcp
    front raises 4 sets of 15
    shrugs 6 sets of 20-12

    Notes
    * vicious pump today
    * recovery between sets is awesome
    * most of the holiday bloat is gone

    Thanks man!!! There is only 1 squat rack and 1 cage at my gym so they are prime real estate. Im going to try to get a sign that says something along the lines of "I dont squat on your preacher bench so dont do curls in my squat rack"

We have a lifting platform for deads and clean too.. and it only costs me 25 bucks a month and great equipment. Lot of boneheads there later in the day though. They also have some good trainers who teach power lifts with good form... chains and all it's getting hard core in the am ...

    a lot of it is vanity, but i have mirrors all over the place in my basement gym. not only do i dig watching myself get pumped, but i can keep an eye on form. when i go to nifs[national institute for fitness and sports] it's mostly for the machines, so it's not such an issue.

    Lift the fücking weight from the floor, or leave it on the ground. The thoughts are supposed to be daunting. The pain is meant to be tormenting.

    Ok the form is great but you never lock out your first 3 to 5 reps but you always lock out the rest. No big deal really and it would not add any dificulty if you did. Otherwise I was extremely impressed with your form. the back position was spot on.
