  1. How's it goin' Drumma? Rugger's advice is solid..... try doing dumbbell presses in place of bar if possible as well.

    As for back exercises..... pullups and deadlifts need to be foundation additions to your routine.

    You must understand one thing: your body is built for survival, not to be balanced and aesthetically pleasing. When you're lifting weights you're stimulating the muscles to grow larger and stronger. This is an adaptive response to physical work.

    However, just doing an exercise doesn't guarantee that you'll be stimulating growth in the muscle you want to maximize. Your body is built for survival. When doing a bench press it doesn't know that your goal is to build a big chest. All it knows is that a big ass weight is trying to crush you and if you don't lift it you'll die.

    So in the interest of your physical integrity and survival, your body will use the muscles better suited to get you out of this menacing situation. If your triceps or deltoids are overpowering your chest, then your chest might not get fully stimulated from the bench press since the nervous system will "shift" more of the workload onto the overpowering muscle(s). This is why some guys get a big chest simply by bench pressing while others build nothing but triceps or shoulders.

    Just because you're doing what's traditionally known as a "chest exercise" doesn't mean that you'll be stimulating maximal pectoral growth. Sometimes you have to force your body to use the muscle you want to stimulate. This is what the "squeeze press" does.

    It's a dumbbell bench press movement with one slight difference: the dumbbells are kept in contact with each other at all times and you're actively squeezing them inward (against each other) as hard as possible. This simple action will shift all the stress onto the pectorals.

    It's very important to understand this point: you should squeeze in the dumbbells as hard as possible during every inch of every single rep. This is what makes this exercise effective.

  16. dude you wanna talk abotu feeeling in the chest. do deep DB flat, deep DB incline, deep DB decline, Deep military press. you WILL def feel it then. thats what i did to grow my chest

  17. Dont take the military presses too deep tho. You risk hurting your shoulders. I wouldnt go any further than your nose or upper lip.

  18. yeah my bad on not specifying on that. i stop at ear lobe. metroba my log is up and goin! im going to have measurements up tomorrow for you.

  19. speakin of not goin too low i was in the WR and one of the guys was sayin dont touch your chest on bb decline cuz can tear your rotaters....true or no?

    depends on you, the length of your arm from elbow to shoulder vs elbow to wrist, other things too. if you are doing declines right though you should find it hard to go too low as the bar will hit your chest . I do mine really steep tho

    Great advice Easy!

    This is one of my favorite chest exercises...especially when doing high rep high intensity training...if you can't feel a chest pump from this your not putting forth enough effort!

  27. so my log is over and ive noticed an endurance decrease in my WO's. on the stack, i felt invincible.
    this was an amazing stack, very potent, very beneficial.
    i want to thank all AN reps for allowing me this great opportunity
    overall i rate this stack a 10/10
    the first week i didnt notice too much, but after my body got used to it, i took off. ive increased 60 lbs on flat bench since i started it and have noticed alot of tone increase. i will put my final pix up tonite.
    thanks again and i look forward to possibly logging the new formula too ;-)

  28. wow 60 lbs!! looks like you got some beginner gains still comin. Keep at it mang!

  32. i did a pretty intense leg WO yesterday and i am so sore today. it hurts to walk lol.
    ya i think most peoples goal right now is to tone for the summer

  33. ok im kinda confused....when i started this stack my measurements were at:

    neck 15"
    bicep 14.5"
    waist 33"
    chest 39"

    now my measurements are:

    neck 14"
    bicep 13.75"
    waist 32"
    chest 40"

    im wondering if i burned a bit of fat? but the thing is, i look bigger than i did before. maybe i look more toned rather than bigger? just wondering

  34. Did you take the measurements at the same time of the day?

    From those #s it looks as if you definitely recomped a bit. What does the scale difference show?

    a 16 bicep with good definition between it and the delts looks bigger than a 17 inch that is a smooth tube to the neck
