Except you don't let the plates touch the floor, and the bar only goes down to just below knee level

^^ problem with that bar is... most new homes have moldings... so the side of the bar would actually dent/mark up the wall

Doesn't that "pad" offset the bar a bit off the wall so it clears the molding? Anybody have a picture, I'd like one of these too.

Smith barbell row is interesting! I have done inverse barbell row on the smith (flat with feet on a bench) but hadn't thought of doing it this way.

My friend has that chin up bar in his house. Another friend came over and was swinging on it and fell. There is a a nice hole in the drywall from his head lol

Had a good workout. So much easier to lift big when you are eating big. 189.6 lbs and trying to get to 195 before cutting.

Squat 280lbs x 21
Bench 195lbs x 17
Barbell row 170lbs x 14
Tricep dips 65lbs weighted x 15

I have this chin-up bar. Cheap (Price-wise) and really sturdy. Except this is what it does to your molding after using it 3-4 times a week.

I'm going to do them tonight. I've been doing them reverse (hanging from bar with feet on a benchy with weight on my chest but I'm gonna try em the other way

Key is to focus on pulling with your back focussing on like trying to pull your shoulders togrther instead of pulling with your hands

Been doing Smithy rows for a while now. People who hate on the Smith Machine are usually skinny little pricks anyways.

I guess you don't have to worry about people doing curls in the Smith machine...

What you guys rocking on Smithy Rows? I was doing a plate and a 25, don't usually go crazy heavy on them since you end up starting to use momentum to pull it to your chest, which is pointless.

I know most wont care but w/e
going to do a little update in the halogodv2 world
Current weight is 240 ish still floating around that mark... The last picture i posted i have gotten a bit bigger but a little bit more body fat, not watching what i eat as much. My training has been very weird lately. i usually just go to the gym and decide what i do that day. Trying to do 2 muscle groups a week. end of the year goals are dead lift 6 plate 25 for 2, back to benching 4 plates for reps ( 3 reps ) and maybe get to 5 plates squat. It is so hard to keep everything high, my squats have been up but deads have been dropping.
Still killing it in the gym as usual

It's not the steroids that makes the champion but it's hard training .. dedication, the diet and sacrifice and genetics that person has.. what makes the champion.
