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.

It can depend on the person's build as well... Some guys are built to deadlift, some guys are built to squat, some guy's built to bench, you get the idea. People have different strongpoints and weakpoints in their physique.

And cmon guys, 185 isn't all that bad... just cus some of you bench 3 plates plus doesn't mean a 185 isn't a strong improvement.

Fuck that gym looks awesome. Not sure if I'd enjoy the commute though

and its hard to look like a "juice monkey" benching 185.

its definitely not bad though. everyone progresses at different rates - no big deal.

Exactly.

If someone asks me how many sets I have, I tell them, then offer them if they want to work in. It's different if you're doing squats and the dude wants to work in and do some bicep curls.

Edit - And Xilley, if I ever see you at my gym and you ask me how many sets I have, I'll tell you to suck my dick.

My workout program lately has been as follows, all based on 5 sets of 5 reps (More reps if possible but then the weight goes up) Semi-typical 5x5 heavy program.

Day 1 Legs - 5 sets of squats, I often go a couple extra sets to really punish the legs and my range of motion is FULL, like ass to floor. I have been limited with my ability to do leg exercises as I have two ankle injuries I have been nursing)

Day 2 Shoulders - 5 sets of DB shoulder press (I will alternate this with overhead press, usually on a smith machine - please don't throw rocks at me for using smith machine), followed by 5 sets of shoulder flys.

Day 3 Upper Back - 5 sets of BB bent over rows, usually follow up with some cable rows, wide grip chin ups, and/or T-bar row. * I seem to have real issues isolating the muscles in my upper back

Day 4 Chest - 5 sets of pushing the world down, I alternate DB and BB chest press both flat and incline... usually throw on a set of cable fly's and thats about it, always get good chest pump and based on my proportions I could probably afford to skip a few chest days hahaha.

Day 5 Lower Back - It's a straight up deadlift party, go until I either almost puke or black out. I DL x2 my body weight right now, w/ straps though and I keep my legs straight as a MOFO, she's all in the back.

Day 6 Tri's and Abs, I basically get down on decline and alternate about 10 sets of skull crushers along with sit ups in-between... just hog the decline bench for 30 minutes. Followed by weighted oblique dips and some cable pull downs/extensions to finish off the tri's.

Day 7 Useless bicep and whatever else day, curls are gay but whatever, hit the forearms too, though they get a lot of use form the NWS threads anyway.

Day 8 (Magical weekday) Usually and off day, can't get back to legs yet as Back is still all fucked up, unable to squat manly weight.


So obviously I have holes in my game, critique away, I know I should probably get some shruggies in there, cardio is off the map, though I plan to start running for ten minutes again as a warm up, gave myself till the end of the month before I start using my ankles as they were intended.

I know there is a million ways to workout but for me this has really been working in terms of actually getting a good pump going... Current mission is gaining though if I continue to eat like a fairy that won't happen... will cut in spring before beach season with a touch cardio and slightly leaner diet.

I eat the following:
Quick mass and ON gold standard whey 50/50
Kre Alkalyn EFX (2 pills per day)
Occasionally I also eat solid food.

I only juuuust started the creatine, and wasn't able to workout before November as I was recovering from head injury (Has a lot to do with the ankle injuries hahaha)

Anyway, you're all a bunch of Chads so whatever advice I get will promptly be ignored, spring will roll around and I will still weigh 160, at which time I will get on a cycle and be more motivated than ever thanks to my pathetic physique.

If your goals are "fucking around in the gym wasting time" then I agree

At the gym today and overheard two power lifters sitting by a platform.

"You hurting today?"
"There's always pain, but at least this is just from lifting"
"Ain't that true."

Thought you RS brahs would appreciate that.

Went around 6 today. Was pretty busy, worked in with a guy on a squat rack and any time either of us finished a set we got asked how many more. Then the platforms were both taken so I kind of deadlifted between the platforms at the smith.

By 7 it was decently empty and when I went at 8 last week it was pretty much empty.

you guys have any tips for upping bench and over all chest strength?

my squat and DL numbers are "decent" enough (for me) but my chest and especially my bench press has always been weak

also, anyone have any good links to read up on new routines etc....currently getting back into the 5x5 but open to something new

thanks

anyways, heres some basic programming advice. good assistance exercises (i.e. these are worth your time)

bench: weighted dips/chinups, close grip bench, incline bench (db or barbell). db rows
squats: none that i can think of. plyos, sprints?
deadlift: good mornings, db rows, RDL/SLDL, glute ham raises
OHP: seated military ohp, 60 degree incline press, chinups

Is it cause your chest is weak? Or because your shoulders/rotator cuff can't hack it?

I was never really able to get passed 60lb DB chest press, then I started working out shoulders and my DB chest press jumped like crazy. (As did BB bend of course)
