I do chest 4x a week. 100 lb dumbbells. Im guessing this is too much, but I use to be in football and was a heavy powerlifter so im thinking the way I workout is a little off. because I dont powerlift anymore. After reading this thread though im definately going to cut back significantly.

2x a week
Monday and Friday
12 sets of 8-10 monday
9 sets of 10-12 friday
Composed entirely of dumbell/cable exercises.
Has been great for hypertrophy, but i would say low to moderate strength gains (though i havent benched in ages, so i dont really know how to compare it to how strong i was previously). Then again, i have a strange routine, but i like it and it works for me. Been putting on more mass (but less strength) than i had been with the Starr 5x5.

I hit my chest twice a week , giving 2 days rest. First workout I go with barbell exercises combined with machine flys. Second workout is all dumbells to include flys. Never more than 4 sets and 6-10 reps per. I've always had good luck with it. I usually go heavy every other week, the rest of the time I keep the weight manageable and stick to form.

went out to the parking lot and I dropped him with a jab to the chin and a power to the nose, laid him out in the middle of the lot, with mad people around cheerin cause he was being such a prick. Took 10 sec. Now I'm only 5'11" @ 190. It took him three weeks of working out with me 3 times a week still, to come up and apologize. Then he finished by asking me, "how are you so fast?". Hilarious. But I know how you feel.

Yea u can be strong as hell and still not know how to fight. Anyhow, I work chest once a week. I just feel more fresh when I give my chest a week to rest.

Once a week, 2-4 sets TOTAL after warm up.
When you leave this world, will it be a better place because you were here?
