    Dropsets on squats are crazy hard, I think Ive done them maybe half a dozen times over the last couple years.
    Thanks for the comments.

    The Manta ray is a great device, I use that.
    I like drop sets for quads, it really burns them out.

    Do you usually just stick with straight sets for back?

    As usual, nice training. I'm assuming you typically do rear delts on back day? I've seen a few posts of people doing the same. What are the benefits to this? I suppose you hit a lot of rear delt on back day regardless.

    No, I use both straight sets and drop sets.
    I do that with all exercises.

    Thanks for the comments.
    Yes,
    I usually do rear delts on back day when I am using rowing exercises.
    My reason for doing them on back day is that I think I get a benefit by preexausting them on rowing exercises.

    D,

    What is your biggest motivator?

    What was your biggest milestone?

    My biggest motivator at 53 is to try and stay healthy and try and keep everything from falling apart as I age

    My biggest milestone was hit at 28, when I set at 18 a goal of going from a skinney 6'3 at around 174 to a target weight of 250 lbs at under 12%bf.

    Along the way I also hit several milestone targets as to my chest, arms and quads.
    I wanted a chest over 50 inches, arms over 18 inches and quads over 28 inches.

    If memory serves, working out from 4-6 days a week for 1.5- 2 hours a workout for ten years ( this was back in the 70's and early 80's during the high volume Arnold training era), I built my chest from around 42 inches into around 54 inches , my arms from around 14 and half inches into 18 and a half inches and 22 inch quads into 28 inch quads.
