I certainly do and recommend compound lifting but a) not all the time and b) at rep ranges of between 5 and 15... Technique is the most important thing as well... Don't get me wrong, like I said if effidiecy is more important and there is no reason why it wouldn't be then do some singles here and there.

    I usually rotate from lower reps with heavier weights to higher reps or slower greater TUT reps. Today I had no chalk or straps so there was only so heavy or so many reps I could do before grip failed. Also this workout took under an hour so rest periods were very short. Next deadlift day Ill go all 6-15 reps. Thanks for your input

    You are going to experience growth either way, I am just saying that a lot more of your focus seems to be on efficiency that it is with me. That ship sailed away as I got older and it is not even something I can even consider as I would just get to the point where I could not work out at all. You can mix the two no problem. Just watch your joints.

    Thanks for the input man with your experience any advice is like gold. Joints a good except flat benching occasionally doesnt feel too good on the shoulder if im going under 5 reps. But I try to stay away from flat prefering incline/decline dips and dumbells as I feel it better activates chest muscles

    There is never really a really good reason for a bodybuilder to go sub 5 reps, does more damage than it does good. You can work power from 5 to 8 reps.

  14. So with the advice of DreamWeaver Ill be focusing more on growth then strength. Doing each bodypart twice a week 1st go will be 5-8ish reps second will be more like 10-15, And doing more traditional BB type workouts.

    Chest/Back
    warm up 5 minutes stepmill various rotator cuff excersizes

    Flat bench
    135x10
    135x10
    155x10
    185x10
    205x10
    225x10 PR probably could have gotten another 1-2 but didnt have a spotter
    235x6
    185x15

    Incline DB
    70sx12
    80x12
    85x10
    85x6

    cable flys 3 sets of 15
    machine flys 3 sets of 15

    Wide grip pullups
    12
    10
    7
    Chins
    12
    10
    8

    95x15
    115x12
    135x12

    pulldowns
    3 sets of 12

    cable rows
    3 sets of 12

    DW, do you know how much there is actual 1-androsterone in 1 cap of 1-Alpha? 1-Andro has 110mg/cap, does 1-Alpha have more? Proprietary blend of 1-androsterone, bergamottin and naringin is 190mg and I believe that it has around 50mgs of bergamottin..
