I think that eventually barbell rows will come back into my routine, but only after I am satisfied that my core is strong enough again. I used to do them slightly bent with 405lbs. Right now Im substituting very heavy dumbbell rows when I can for barbell. I actually feel DB rows more then barbell and get a deeper stretch.

    True. I have a written journal as well. That contains all diet info and other things too.

    I dont like to incorporate too much swing in my chins. But really arch my back as I feel it hits the lats best.

    KEEP KILLIN THAT SHIT!!
    Main difference is lower back and width. How much stretching do you do?

    Lower back thickness right? Yea, fucking ballys doesnt have a hyper extention bench. I built lower back thick back then with the deads, and then after stopping deads for a few years , I did weighted hyper extentions, holding 3 45lb plates when doing them. So that kept the lower back thick. Need to get a hyper bench for my garage or some shit.

    Upper back width too right? What about the delts?

    I do ALOT of hanging from a bar at the gym. Thats the main stretching. Aside from stretching deep when doing back exercises.

    haha Yea man. Never felt like my structure was right for squatting. I was a fucking deadlifting maniac for about 2 years though, maybe year and a half. I went so fucking wild with them , that I really fucked myself up. Did some permanent damage. It was a fucking blast though. I was doing fucked up shit like inventing my own lift, called the beast lift. Deadlifting with bar behind legs basically. Up to 730lbs off lowest setting in rack. Super high volume and intensity , plus a shitload of super heavy rowing and chins throughout the routine. Over 30 sets on back days. Prior to those 2 years I never did deads really. I got quite strong for the short time I did them though.

    Twenty reps at full range is strong. I think eventually I will work back to full range. If I had a hyper extention bench Id be able to really strengthen my lower back. I need to strengthen that shit again. This fucking pin loaded lower back extention doesnt do the trick, even with the stack. I need to be holding plates when doing em.


    Yea this leg routine I hardly consider legit. In my perspective its not the real thing if Im not nauseaous, dry heaving or vomitting. Cuz thats how I always did it. Its definately a gauge of the intensity of the routine.

    1-15-09 Thursday Chest,Shoulders,Abs (15 mins cardio)


    Hit some PR's today on flat bench. Only did three sets of shoulders. Will do full shoulder routine by the end of this week. I also started 5x5 incorporated within the routine, not by itself. It is done after multiple sets to failure, so not fresh at all. Still serves its purpose and has helped me in the past to regain my strength with the reps on 315 and up. I could start cutting the reps short on the first light sets with 225 and 275, but since im progressing consistantly on those I will keep them going for a while. Also I am close to 40 reps with 225 and 20 with 275. Will post some update pictures after this post.

    (193lbs after some water ,before meals)


    Flat Bench Press:

    135x20
    225x35 3/4 (2 rep PR. Basically 36 reps. Inch short of lockout, but majority of reps are partial anyway)
    275x17 (1 rep PR for last four years. Matching my all time best)
    315x3 (weak)
    315x3

    5x5 Routine:

    290x5
    290x5
    290x5
    290x5
    290x5

    ------------
    225x20
    185x39

    Hammer Strength Incline Press:

    270x16 1/2
    360x3
    320x5

    Wide Chest Hammer Strength Press:

    Here are a few recent pictures taken few days ago. Picts taken cold. Delts and back seem to be coming up somewhat more, but not back yet. Need to get picts taken by someone other then myself to really judge size increases. Too awkward:

    Appreciate the feedback!! True. Triceps and forearms always been a weak point for me. Ive been hitting them first in the arms routine for a while now and its been helping to bring them back. They are quite strong but never have the size Id like.

    I used to do crushing grip training and got pretty strong with that, but never did much for overall forearm size. Now I just dont use straps during my heavy back workouts, unless doing DB rows. Started doing occasional forearm work on arm days too.
