    I'm considering doing the same thing as you and just train calfs normally, training them DC style is painful but the weight i can use is pitiful. I can go much heavier training them normally and therefore more growth, so i think i may change that up.

    gonna have to cycle em out before that happens. **** kills my wrists, feels like it wants to break on each rep. may take it back to 75% and work back up and see what happens. if i get bored with it, i've already got a replacement lined up.

    I don't like going heavy on barbell curls. I got up to 175x2 about a year and a half ago and it started impacting my bench, I was literally developing tennis elbow in both arms. I couldn't grip anything without pain.

    Try kettelbells, or if you can find a bar that has the weight hanging below where your hands grip, that greatly reduces the torque on your wrists. I still don't like curls at all but that's how I'd do em if I did

    8/11 - chest/shoulders/tri's/back
    felt like **** all day today. really started to suspect major overtraining but i was determined to finish the week before taking a week off. been tired, unmotivated to hit the gym, and no appetite for the past week or so. calendar says exactly 5 weeks since the last time off, so it's high time for another one. i'm not even counting todays workout as anything, so today is day off #1, i'll be back next friday to finish the session i started today. last time i tried to push through it, i had another pec pull.

    flat bench
    bar x 30 (you know it's bad when the bar feels heavy)
    135 x 15 (felt a pec tweak on 15, lol)
    135 x 15 (better)
    185 x 4 (felt like a ****ton, call it a day)

    straight bar pressdowns
    100 x 30

    lat pulldowns
    couple sets of 10 for the hell of it, light-medium weight

    cable crossovers - couple sets for the hell of it.

    lol, no, (1) 145lbs dumbbell. i put 145's to signify it's a dumbbell but i can why you would think that. if i were doing 290lbs dumbbell crunches on a decline - then it's over, i win. time to move onto something else.

    I actually kind of want to get a strongman log, besides being able to do log press instead of regular standing military press, I could do zerchers with it pain free.

    those mother****ers will NEVER be pain free. my TP made a 2 x 6 with arm holes cut into it so the bar can't fall out. we wrapped that in a large beach towel and used it yesterday. it helps some, but not to the degree that i would think. i've already got a replacement ready anyway. some sort of reverse hack squat machine, where you face the pad. i'll find a pic.

    Have you seen those front squat harnesses? Kind of want to try one of those out too. It's like a yolk with j hooks on the front, you put the bar in the j hooks and squat... Looks mean.

    yeah, saw it. but it's 200 bucks. and it doesn't look comfortable at all. in any case, i'm not too sure of zercher/front squat effectiveness in the pursuit of a bigger squat.

    When are you going to pick up some bands and chains there big guy? They really do help a ton... I've found the carryover to be huge, as long as you don't go so crazy with them that there's no weight at the bottom.

    i tried to find a picture and i guess the appropriate term is power squat machine. this pic isn't quite right but it's pretty close to what we have in our gym.

    Hmmm......we got one of those but it only has one arm on either side to hold plates, if yours is the same big man I think you're gonna have to head down to Denny's or IHOP during buffet time to get someone to stand on top while you squat

    it has an arm on each side. i haven't used it yet but i assume that'll be enough. why? is it one of those machines that require over 1/2 ton to get a decent set in? i can always do sets of 20. i don't have any high rep leg day anyway, may be beneficial.

    Depends really, if you got 100lb plates you should be alright....we only got 45's at my gym and the arms fill up quickly......and I ain't movin' your kind of weights...........yet

    we have (6) 100lbs plates, the rest are 45's. won't know til i try. running out of options though. leg press is maxed out, can't find heavier people to put on top. hammer leg press, maxed out. zerchers are ripping my arms off. already doing regular squats and box squats.

    Why not try hack squats with a barbell, Dimmel deads, Romanian Deads, 1 legged split squats, double squats, or pause squats?
