      Good sessions here!

      I love doing DB rows too! Damn, you kill me with the weights you use though. I seldom go over 110's, I start to feel it in my bi's a lot when I go too heavy.

      I have never used that type of weight for a DB fly, good stuff!

      I would love and hate to train with you. It would cool, but humbling all at the same time.

      Good stuff on keeping this up to date, heavyiron could take some lessons from you as of late in the journal posting department.

          Thanks.

          I usually will go up to a max of 130 or so on DB rows.
          I don't see a need to go heavier than that.
          Any heavier and I start loosing that contraction feel in my lats.

          I love DB incline flys.
          Until I injured my shoulder, I was using 90 pounds on that move.
          Now I hold back and stay within my max limit.

                  My gyms DB's only go up 120, there are very few people that lift them though.

                  I am trying to incorporate incline DB flies into my routine, but I do not seem to like the movement. I do need to improve in inner chest, but I like the seated pec deck movement better.

                  In your opinion, should I bite the bullet and learn to like incline DB flies or is pec deck a suitable alternative?

                  Thanks in advance.

                        I like db flys over pec deck.
                        I don't seem to get the same 'feel' and level of intensity using a pec deck machine as I do with dumb bells.

                            • Great training. I tried the Pyramid drop sets which did what they were supposed to do and kicked my ass. That will be staying in the training routine. Glad I read what goes on in here!

                                I do them every squat workout and nothing burns out my quads on squats like those.
