Couple things I noticed:

You'll manage the weights better if you fully kick into the start position. Don't let your lower back control the weights as you set up. Kick them up strong and let the weights bring you down BUT have control. Your back will not enjoy that in the years to come. Kick those bitches up, let the weight take you, and land your feet immediately.

Your form is lacking. Drop the weight 5-10lbs and lets see some solid reps. I personally find it a waste of time if I'm grinding every rep, its pointless. Kill each rep with good form. 5 solid reps no problem, then increase reps. Set a goal for reps, then increase weight.

And don't be afraid to toss the weights after the set. You're at Golds, I've been there for well over a year. No one will give a shit cause you have a ton of other people doing the same thing. Take advantage of those rubber dumbbbells. Finish the set, toss them in your zone, and take care of them after so they don't roll out on someone.

My two cents.

Good job though.

Yeah definetly man... I usually work with 100s when I do flat bench, and its rare that I actually do flat bench, lately its been incline for me...

This is just for the sake of the video haha, and like I said, you'll probably see me doing it with alot more control when I have the energy and focus.. its also why I don't use the hip tuck..

keep in mind I have repped out 120s for about 3 or 4 when I am properly rested...

I have to say though, I disagree with your point on kicking it up to start position, its how I've seen tons of people get shoulder dislocations/injuries and such, with a weight this heavy in comparison to my bodyweight, it'd be better to slowly bring it to starting point, I kick but everything is gradual.

thanks, great tips!

Yeah, whenever I do chest press I try to keep things fairly tight and snug, not alot of arching cus I like to isolate the movement as much as I can and work on chest strength..


It's gold's gym burnaby, come join man, your lifts will up a few just by being in the atmosphere, tons of provincial and national level bodybuilders and powerlifters there... mike goes there too.... dumbbels go to 150 or 160 i believe

I was just there from 10:15 - 11:45 and it was pretty dead. A few kids but they were actually working out surprisingly lol


Upper chest is officially stronger than everything else. Dafuq? Even when I'm flat benching I end up trying to guillotine press when I go heavy.
Tips anyone? Maybe its my grip but its pretty neutral from what I see other people doing

Hey everyone, I've been lurking this thread since the 300 page mark and thought I would finally introduce myself since I need some advice.

I do a home workout with the weights that I have at home because I got no monies for the gym Also, don't know what some of the technical names are of these workouts, so troll is you please.

This is my basic workout:

standing bicep curl: 10 reps @ 30lbs
M-bar (technical name???) curl: 15 reps @ 20lbs/side (plus bar)
squat: 25 reps @ 40lbs (plus bar)
push-ups: 35 reps @ body weight
crunches with legs hanging: 20 reps
shoulder press: 15 reps @ 20lbs/hand
plank variations: total time 1min 40sec

I do the entire cycle as fast as possible, wait a minute or so, then start all over again. I do this three times. I keep increasing the break times as the exercise get more difficult to perform, but I can finish the 3 sets of this cycle in under 40min.
Since I am limited to the amount of weights I can use, can some of you suggest what kind of compound exercises I could incorporate into a homeworkout with limited weights?

My problem is I know I can do one more set, but since I'm racing against the clock to keep the intensity up as high as possible, my head is throbbing once I finish the third set. I checked my pulse after the third set, and it's at 160+bpm. So my question is, do I slow down the pace to do more sets? or keep pushing?
It gets to the point where I think im going to faint and throw up, thats why I just stop at 3 sets. After a 10min rest, I feel like I am able to squeeze out another set or so.

Did chest and bi's today. I can barely hold my spoon still and my arms are in perma-bent (t-rex) shape.

When you unrack the bar, try to turn your wrists laterally 45 degrees and drop the bar to your nipples. This is more of a powerlifting technique though.

You're not going to have a great workout by doing circuit training as fast as possible. It looks like the weight is too light for you and the only proper way to increase the intensity of your workout is to lift heavier. High speed will compromise your form, decrease the amount of resistance you feel, and rely on momentum. You already said you don't have much money but getting access to heavier weights seems like the only possibility.

get two high stools and start doing dips on them.

Also, wear a backpack and fill it up with heavy stuff, maybe like heavy textbooks or bags or rice and do all of your exercises with that backpack on. I'd recommend backpacks with the front strap for stability so that the backpack doesn't swing around and fuck up your rep.

Once pushups with the backpack get too easy for you, get someone to sit on your back as you do the pushups, it'll provide steady and even pressure.

You could get pretty fucking lean and toned out from that circuit that you have there, but never compromise form for rep count... I wouldn't suggest you do the individual sets with high speed, but if you want, maybe shorten the break periods...
