    They're usually about 15-19lb. I've only ever seen 17s and 19s. The 19s are usually have pretty thick handles and very nice V angles, whereas the 17s are usually chrome-looking, thin handles. Probably wont make a difference, you could just track the weight on the bar. IT's like when I use machines, I dont measure the weight of hte sled/carriage/arms/etc., just what's on the machine.

    I do them on a bench, with my butt off of it. So top half of my body on the bench, slowly bring to behind head, lightly touch the bench, and then back up.

    Yeah but I go to 2 different gyms, and 1 gym has the thick handles you speak of and the other one has the thin lol.

Both sets strict form, I never do a cheating rep I just try to squeeze the fck out of the reps lol. If I ever do a partial rep or spotted rep it doesn't go in the log book, thanks for all the advice tho!
    I did read it wrong, my bad. I see you said "previous best."

    Well there you have it, 17 and 19lbs. You can also weigh yourself twice, once just you, the other with you holding the bar, then subtract (can also just put the bar on the scale, lol).

  7. Some pretty good progress. +8-10 reps is a lot.

    Stick to DC for a good 8-12 months MINIMUM. Don't be a routine jumper..heh It is a quick way to make slow progress. JMO.

    Thanks for the compliment frank! And yeah I am going to have to decide if I want to stay with this routine, but I am really thinking about switching to max OT training for the next 4 months. It just seems more my style, either way the one I choose I will be sticking with for awhile.. 4-6 months.

    Btw I hit a set of chest today because I seen my friend at the gym, my shoulder is giving me problems now, and my elbows have been really sensitive lately, they hurt when I was resting them on the standing leg curl pads today and they hurt when I am resting them on my car door while driving.. Do you reccomend any good joint supps? If the shoulder isn't better by wednesday or workout 1A I think it may be time to deload.

  9. No workout today, letting my shoulder heal up.

  14. Workout 2A

    Well I think I need to figure out some new tricep workouts. I don't seem to be progressing much on the close grip smith bench or the wide grip reverse smith bench press exercises. I added 5 lbs to all movements this workout except the hammer strength rows I added 10 lbs.

    Decline BB Press
    170x14RP +5lbs

    Shoulder DB Press
    60lbsx15RP +5lbs

    Close Grip Smith Bench
    140x14RP +5lbs (but-3 reps for the extra 5 lbs.)

    Rack Chins(did these today without my straps cuz i forgot them at home.)
    35lbsx20RP+5lbs

    Hammer Strength Rows-
    2platesx20lbs 21RP +10lbs

    Not sure what movements to consider for triceps, got some thinking to do. Total cals today were a little over 3400.

  15. Workout 2B - Been killing these legs days lately, I have been gaining weight a little too fast so I gotta cut the calories back, I weighed in at 152 today. I think alot of my weight gain is my body returning to what it was before my cut, some muscle memory mixed in there etc.

    Ez Bar Wide Grip Curls
    70lbsx17RP +10lbs

    Pinwheel Curls
    30x15 SS +3 reps

    Seated Leg Curls
    95 x 27RP +5lbs +7reps > : )

    Leg Press calve Extensions
    4plates x20lbs x13 DC +20 lbs (these hurt so good could barely walk to bathroom after haha)

    Leg Press - On my heavy set of these I grunted pretty loud haha sht was heavy as fck.. and ppl were lookin at me, but who cares haha I went hard.

    470lbsx10 SS +10lbs +2 reps
    290lbsx20 Widowmaker +10lbs

    Total cals for today were 3000.

  18. Nice work! Hey as long as you're going up, you're gaining. Whether a it's 1 rep or 2.5lbs.

    You're better than you were last time. Marathon, not a sprint!

    Very true.. thanks bro. I guess when I am getting stronger in other exercises but not as much in those presses I felt like I didn't do a good job. I will stay with the exercise until progress is 0 reps. I gotta say I am glad I chose DC for my bulk, it seems to be treating me really well. I plan on taking some progress pics after this blast ends.. hopefully get some good input lol.
