    i always see guys listing sets and reps of inclines but never see where they made adjustments, i just assumed they did. i have always done this, it's the way the veteran lifters were doing it when i started!!!

    does anyone do old school butterfly's anymore or am i the only one? it probably isn't trendy because you have to reduce weight to do them properly. another good one is both db's above head and lower one to the side like butterfly- lift back to start position, then the other---that sh!t is killer!!!

    Oh that sounds awesome! I'll have to give that a try! What's the old school butterfly? Just normal flat bench fly's? For the exercise you mentioned, are you seated, standing, laying?

    laying flat, i am telling you it is hard as hell to lower one out to side while keeping other straight up. old school butterflys are arms straight out elbows locked, this is much more difficult than bent elbows but hits a different area-be prepared to lower weight!!!

    On the butterfly's, that's the only way I really do them. Ok so your laying flat with the DB's up toward the ceiling, right? Lowering one at a time then back up like a fly?

    Good work in here KP. I'm liking your heavy declines with the degree changing, and those leg extensions are also crazy volume for that much weight.

    Just saw your labs a few pages back. Your numbers are fine man. I wouldn't touch trt unless you are completely comfortable with injections forever. Or whatever your insurance covers; pellets, cream... Then you have labs all the time til your T:E ratio gets in line. Then there's innumerable doctors that have no fckng clue what they're doing. Either way I wish you luck with whatever route you choose. Keep killing it brother

    I gotta hand it to you, Kenpo- you are committed. Great to see you going after it everyday even when you may not 100% want to. IMO, that is what sets people apart when it comes to fitness and something I am so glad my dad instilled in me. Obviously you have a greater and deeper approach on things and I am certain that your martial arts are a huge part of that (chicken/egg?), so it is carrying over into wanting to stay sharp and physically ready for things that come your way.

    Keep it up as you'll be an inspiration to everyone around you.

    Holy Mackeral is right.... 21 sets of declines ....ouch!

    Nice quote of the day - really like that one.

    All too often people around me seem to push negativity my way... and at times it feels as though they are almost trying to ruin my goals. Perhaps it is in my head though.

    I'm definitely interested in trying it too. Pete said it gives stimul8 a run for it's money.

    Nice ab work KP!


    I notice the same thing sometimes, Wasme. Every time we try and hang out with friends junk is on the menu. I can work in a couple drinks, but pizza or whatnot does more damage to me.

    Good lifting for sure. Even when you're flat, you still put the time in. That's more than I could say for myself.

    Geebus, you did over 100 presses!
