    Thanks for the comments Big Bri.
    This is basically the type of workout I have been doing for 35 years.

    High volume build/drop set combo.

    Occasionally I rotate it into a lower volume workout phase and modify the exercise types but this is my basic type of workout.
    I love the high volume and the intensity level I get from this type of workout.

    I also modify tempo during a workout and change set/rep tempo .

    This modify is feel based, as to the intensity level of how each set/rep feels as I progress through the workout.

      That's how I do it. Go in the gym and just lift by fell.

            In 35 years of training, what is your best and worst moment related to weight training?

            You have been training longer than I have been on the planet!

                Thanks for asking.

                Best moment

                After 10 years of training as a natural I hit my goal .

                I went from around a skinney 174 at 18 to my goal of hitting in 10 years 250 with less than 12%bf%.

                Worse moment

                While doing incline dumbell flys, I lost control of one and caused a serious injury to my shoulder that stopped me from training for a year.

                        Anyone who has spent the amount of time you have bangin' iron always has awesome stories of feats of strength and profound stupidity!

                        Thanks for posting! That is awesome that you gained that much weight as a natty!

                        How heavy were you going with the flies? Did you lose concentration or wrist control while your arms were extended?

                        Does your shoulder cause you any discomfort to this day?

                            If memory serves, I was using 90 pound dumb bells on the flys.
                            I lost concentration, it slipped, I tried to regain control instead of just letting it drop.
                            Bad decision.

                            I have some stiffness in my shoulder and it aches from time to time.

                            Prior to any exercise that involves my shoulders, flys, bench, military press ect. I do rotator cuff warmups and then use the bar for a warm up set of 25 reps.

                            I also have backed off the weight on benches, dumb bell flys and military presses from what I used prior to the injury.

                            I stay well within my limits.
