    I am glad you decided to keep a journal here.

    You have earned a whole new level of respect from me based on recent events and this journal.

    Keep up the good work as an FL and in the gym!

    During the build up, I rest for around 1.5 minutes between sets, then drop the weight with a mimimal rest between sets.

    Usually I rest between the drop sets for as long as it takes me to strip the weights off.
    I'm glad I'm not the only one doing this type of training. Great workout btw!

    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?
