    what should i do to increase my strength since i dont have a spoter
    reduce the weight until you can perform the first rep by yourself. do you have a full ROM during the entire set? if not, therein lies the issue.

    bis - alternating incline DB curls
    50's - 10
    55's - 9
    60's - 6

    quads - squats
    315 - 10
    335 - 8
    365 - 8

    hams - SLDL

    calves - seated raises
    3 plates x 12 x 3

  4. good call brutha and you're right on schedule i might add. pulled my pec today and you came close to it. one of us getting smarter........

  6. just a pull, a week or two. i'll test it out again next wednesday. goes without mentioning though, flat bench is out again, lol. good thing about my injuries is they are far less serious than my original ones. my porcelain pecs are things to be hated.

    wasn't your original hamstring pull while playing softball or something?

  7. haha yup pulled it playing in a softball game .. hasn't been the same since

  8. 1/12

    chest - db press
    100 - 10
    105 - 7
    110 - 4 .... felt really weak on these today

    back thickness - rack deads
    405 - 10
    455 - 8 ... felt strong on these and would have done another set but i didn't want to crazy my first week back

    back width - close grip reverse grip pulldowns
    200 - 10
    210 - 8
    220 - 7 ... felt great with these

    tris - double hand overhead ext.
    100 - 12
    105- 12
    110 - 10

    felt great most of the workout ... just really struggled with db press for some reason

  9. You swear by those close grip supinated pulldowns huh? What's your tempo with those? I go for speed on any pulldown, pullup work... and my form is flawed because of that I feel.

    Nice to see you back logging.. I've taken too long of a break from it I think.

  10. yeah i really do love those type of pulldowns ... i do those slower than other exercises 3 seconds down 5 seconds up ... it helps me keep perfect form and really feel it in my lats as well as obviously being beneficial from a TUT standpoint ... while my back width isn't really impressive its improved a ton from what it was once i started doing the aforementioned

  11. 1/15
    bis - single arm DB preacher curls
    50 - 8
    55 - 8
    60 - 7

    quads - leg press
    5 plates per side - 10
    6 " " - 12
    7 " " - 12

    hams - lying leg curls
    12 x 8 x 3 ... took these kinda easy as last time i tweaked my hamstring a bit .. felt fine today

    calves - seated raises
    3 plates + 25 x 12 x 3

    considering i'm in my 4th week of PCT and coming off a 3 week break i feel pretty decent in the gym .. hopefully it will continue to improve ... my body will be "natural" until at least May so lets see what happens over the next few months

  12. 1/17

    chest - DB press
    105 - 10
    110 - 8

    220 - 8
    230 - 6

    *due to a bet on sunday i did 25 wide grip pullups in a row at my buddy's place so my lats were a little tired during the workout

  22. 25 pullups, that's some functional strength right there... all you need now are suction cups and a black hoodie, and you could be an efficient newage ninja.

  23. Am I missing any of your shoulder work, or did I miss a post and your shoulders are already well developed and the rest of ya catchin up? Just had to ask...

    LOL excellent question lets see what his answer is

    So Glen?

  25. I went through a few pages of the log and notice that some exercises bug your shoulders such as CGBP so Im thinking shoulder exercises are even worse?
