    550 is a really good recomp product too but the real comp product is Epi-V all 3 would be a good answer something like I will be doing..

  3. deadlift day. diet was on close yesterday 3500 about 250/350/100 but was a rest day so acceptable

    135x10
    225x10
    315x5
    365x3.5
    335x9.5 PR
    355x4.5

    for some reason today my shoulders keep squeking too far over the bar during deads. Wish i had a partner to watch and correct my form

    hack squats
    4 plates x10 2 second pause at the bottom 4 sets

    leg press
    8x20
    10x20
    12x20

    rest only to load plates and in locked out position during sets if needed

    leg curls standing 3 sets of 12
    leg extensions 3 sets of 20
    leg curls with dumbell 3 sets of 12

    Notes
    * legs are effin smoked
    * crazy pump
    * strength still on the rise
    * workouts are steadily getting more dense (more work less time)

    going for a 1RM makes you prone for injuries. Every time I tried to get a higher 1RM on the bench for instance, I got a wrist injury.


    Go for the mass, your killing it!!!!

  9. Yah a PR with 5 reps is as good as one with 1 rep...

  13. Are you talking about the HS flat iso-bench when you say horizontal, you no like?!?!? I'm a pretty big fan now, I'll admit it did feel a little weird at first but I'm a vag and suck with Flat BB bench so I think I have to like HS flat?

    How's the shoulder?

    Ya thats the one I think. I think im a lil too tall so Im pressing at a funny angle. Ill take a pic of the machine in the morning. Also I feel like it puts most of the weight on my triceps rather then chest.

    The shoulder is getting better I just have to remember to warm up properly before any lifting. Ive also been going really slow and just shy of failure on any kind of pressing movement which I think is helping or at least not further damaging it

  16. Ilove the hammer incline press

  17. Yah I can never get the machines to work for me the way I want. I just do incline db's and at the bottom of my negative I push my chest way up and contract my shoulder blades. I am a classic delt presser so really have to concentrate my form.

    I think im simialr if I dont really concentrate on my chest during lifts I think the focus shifts towards my tris and delts
