    You need to do Front Double (syringe) Bicep Curls with fists touching your delts .. Or you can do unilaterally if you are not ambidextrous.

    Only two votes for powerlifting routines. I thought there would be more seeing how the best way to add slabs of muscle is to focus on the compound exercises. Especially if your a beginner.

    I train high volume 8-15 reps but sometimes I will drop the reps to 4-6 and go as heavy as I can. Either way I'll still doin some strip sets after I go heavy

    that's because simply just doing compound exercises doesnt constitute as being a "powerlifter" routine. plenty of bodybuilders do compound exercises for 8+ reps.
    I'm bad, and that's good. I will never be good, and that's not bad. There's nobody I'd rather be, than me.

    Thats pretty much what I meant to ask. If your routine revolves heavily around compound exercises.

    If there's a hot chick(s) on the treadmill my training usually turns to shit.

    I do a different kind of 5-3-1. I know it is not encouraged, but I have some shoulder issues, so I cannot do any shoulder presses.

    I do deadlift as core, after that I do leg curls and rows, and biceps.
    I do bench as core, and do chest, triceps and back as assistance.
    I do squat as core, and do leg extensions and leg curl (and leg press if my knee lets me)

    I go for high volume one week, and intensity the other (yates style)
    No one is special, some were patient.

    Old school high intensity for me, can't bring myself to train any other way than all out.
    My fucked up joints limit me a bit though so it's more machines than free weights and reps in the 10-15 range these days
