^^125x12 is nice. Not sure I have that in me. I need to work some dumbells back into my chest routine next week.


I've been in DC since Monday. I hit chest on Sunday thinking they wouldn't have shit for a gym at the hotel we were staying at. I was blown away by the entire property, and they had a ridiculous gym for a hotel.

Several of us hit it each morning, and yesterday the guys were doing chest and I got called out. I did a quick warm up with 225 on flat bench and then threw another 25 pounds on and hit a personal best 13 reps.

It really feels good to still be moving the bar at 41

250 for 13 aint bad, given the added difficulty of dumbbells I would say 125's x 12 on DB's might not be possible with good form at your strength level right now, 6-8 I could see. Or you might be a hoss and knock out more.

Last time I barbell benched I was doing 315 for 8-12, depending on if it was my first lift or second. However, in light of not injuring myself I never do a heavy pressing movement first and I usually avoid flat bench

Working up to some heavy singles this week. Hit a 14 pound PR on the squat at 515 with some left in the tank, followed by matching a PR on the bench at 380. Here is the squat.

Something went wrong. Please make sure you added the video correctly.

your video is private, but that's a damn good number. I hit a 555 in sleeves last week, put on wraps for the first time Monday and ran out of gas halfway up with the same weight. I will definitely need to get conditioned to putting on wraps lol, I was pouring sweat and shaking every time I walked to the bar wiped out from wrapping. Man that was sad lol

Thanks for the heads up, switched it to public.

And on the wraps, I've worked with them for a couple months leading up to a meet last year, and yeah, they are a pain in the ass. I don't like them for two reasons. One, the bite is not fun, and two, without someone to wrap me, I'd feel worn out and rushed once i actually got them on. Sure, they are good for 50+ pounds, but I'd rather just rock the sleeves.

I've heard good things. Maybe next time I'm working up to a meet, I'll give them a shot. But, to a certain point, getting those is like working to find the best knee wrap to get the most carryover. We end up chasing gains through equipment instead of making strength improvements, and that is a game that doesn't sound especially fun.

hip always acts up any time I start to get "heavier" on squats. Was doing the 385 x 8 for 2 sets few weeks ago.

Last workout did 315 x 12 x 3, aiming for 315 x 15 x 3 next workout.

I probably only get 15lbs out of my SBDs. I don't use them for the extra pounds, I use them because they are soooooo comfortable and my knees feel amazing when I squat with them. They feel like the support of knee wraps (injury wise) without the pain. Not to mention they are heavy duty and will last forever and don't carry a stench really.
