    Thanks man. Relatively I have a lot of work to do. May consider stepping on the platform at 198 once I could flirt with a raw elite total. I've got a lot of time. I just turned 24 and only got back into training seriously about 6 months ago after a 2 year layoff.

    No way, man. Just get out there and compete. Learn stuff, have fun, and see what you can do. Like they say, you don't know your max until you step on that platform. If you want to compete, just step up and do it!

    How are you doing your floor presses? Are you doing touch and go or are you letting the weight come to a complete stop before exploding up? Allowing it to come to a stop while taking some of the load through your forearms to the floor and then bursting up may help build explosiveness and strengthen your triceps.

    All I can say is keep doing them then. My triceps were always a weak point for me on pressing movements, and floor presses really helped them.

    Man those neutral wide grip pull-ups shocked my back! Hadn't had lat soreness like that in awhile! It was great. Beastly rep deadlift workout coming tonight! Feeling strong.

    On a side note, xtreme formulations ultra peptide 2.0 cinnamon roll is the best thing I've ever put in my mouth. I have to practice self restraint to not take down the whole tub!

    Neutral grip pull-ups or pulldowns always seem to smoke my back as well. Good luck boss!

    Haha XF UP 2.0 is amazing. I think Lemon Cream Pie might be my favorite. I've heard the new Butterscotch is impressive too.

    Bench heavy-

    Paused floor press-
    235 x 2 reps x 3 sets

    wg pull-ups-
    Bw x 12 reps x 3 sets

    3dshoulders-
    15 reps x 4 sets

    Band push downs-
    25 reps x 4 sets

    Band shrugs-
    20 reps x 4 sets

    Had to leave the gym for a personal reason. Left after floor press and had to miss 2 sets of 15 paused bench. Came home and got most of the workout in with bands and hanging from my gazebo doing pull-ups. All in all a pretty good workout and ill do extra chest or shoulder work Sunday.

    Girlfriend was cuddling and commented on how my body just felt harder.

    On to the next one!

    Bodybuilding day turned forklift-

    Landmine press (each arm)-
    120 x 5 reps
    130 x 5 reps x 3 sets

    superset with ng wide grip pull-ups-
    Bw x 10 reps x 3 sets

    reverse band cgbp (light bands)-
    275 x 5 reps
    295 x 5 reps
    315 x 5 reps

    superset with pull-ups-
    Bw x 10 reps x 3 sets

    Curls-
    80 x 10 reps x 3 sets

    reverse grip push downs-
    stack x 10 reps x 3 sets

    couple sets of calves and reverse flyes..

    man I felt REALLY powerful today. The close grip benches were flying up, granted they were reverse banded, but with light bands. 60 total pull-ups and flying up... Feeling really good about today's session. I also wore a bright maize michigan fleece (I'm a fan) though I live in Columbus. That gave me some extra satisfaction!

    Bench reps-

    Bench-
    255 x 5

    incline db press-
    45s x 20 reps x 2 sets

    Cgbp w fat gripz-
    145 x 10
    145 x 9
    145 x 10

    Cable flyes-
    25 reps x 4 sets

    Superset w 3d shoulders-
    15 reps x 3 sets

    cable push downs-
    50 reps x 2 sets

    Man my regular bench was weak and somewhat disappointing. I was hoping for 6 clean and easy and got a pretty tough 5. However if you look at the rep work after that from last time I did this workout I absolutely killed it. Part of the bench issue may have been not regularly pressing. Here we go for big squats tomorrow!!!!

    Great workout brother! Considering how the rest of your session went, I wouldn't sweat the bench performance. I've had that happen (especially with flat bench) numerous times as well. Good luck with the squats!

    Ill get some thoughts up tomorrow after squat day! Thanks breezy.. Real bizarre, but I totally misgrooved a rep. Just glad I added a ton of reps across the board later in the workout. What matters though is the 1 rm so we shall see where that ends up before passing judgements

    205 x 8 reps x 2 sets

Will post up some versa comments later. Wednesday is heavy deadlifts. Gotta eat and recover. Fluff weakness day tomorrow. Yeah buddy!
