  1. Excellent workout, man! I've never done reverse hypers. Might need to throw those in next back day.

    I try to be overly critical of myself. This allows me to easily identify my weak points for improvement. I've never been good at pull ups or bent over rows and I know that they are a weakness of mine so I target them at the beginning of my back work so I can work on bringing them up to par.

    I select my accessory work based on what I feel is lacking. Currently, I can't really do much in terms of bent over rows and pull ups so the plan is to target them then move on to whatever else is lacking. Also my shoulders could use some more mass and power so I'm adding in extra front and side raises on bench day and then again on my upper body accessory day. I'm also unsatisfied with how much I can military press so I have been working them in as well.

    Its all just one big work in progress.

    Yeah... my best is only 185 for 1 but I can hit an easy 135 for 12 reps

    My basic overall strategy is to identify my weaknesses and hammer them until they become strengths. One movement/body part at a time.

  5. You want to try a crazy delt exercise? These are hard as fauk. Sit on the floor straight legged in a power rack. Set the pins so the bar is just below chin height. Now do military pin presses. This works the hell out of your core and you have to keep the chest and elbows up or you will fall over backwards. The delts are totally isolated as well. Let me know if you try them.

  11. Tonight is an much needed off night for me. I will be eating a big dinner and followed by a few sets of relaxing on the couch.

  12. Would the couch be a drop set routine??

  15. That's crazy!! Those reps were just fluid as hell. What is his max? I also feel those spotters were a joke. They need to be a lot more involved with the attention.

    Thanks man. It really means a lot... I've always had a twisted definition of what strong is... When I first started lifting I thought that a solid 135 bench for 5 reps was strong and if you could squat 225 you were more than a mere mortal. A little bit later once I tackled these obstacles the bar was raised... to a 185lb bench and a 275lb squat... and the story continues on and on... after each weight I conquered I could always look to someone else that was doing more and say... wow that guys strong... thats what I want to do next. I'll never forget that in college I met a guy who all of my friends said was the strongest kid they've ever met because he benched 225 for 3 sets of 10. That was engraved in my mind and I knew I'd never be considered strong until I could do that... Now I can hit 225 for 20 and the bar just keeps getting raised. I've never really taken much time to think about how strong I am compared to someone weaker than me because I always want to see the next finish line and the next goal...I also didn't intend this post to sound arrogant or elitist in anyway... I greatly value your opinion and your kind words do mean a lot to me. Thanks.

    Doesn't sound arrogant at all, man. If anything you sound humble. Keep killing it, man. You are more than a mere mortal in my eyes
