@AFTSOV True, but I think I did a pretty damn good job of hiding the bodies ;D And my meth side business is well laundered and not traceable to me. Worst case, I'll just flee to south america. Got some guys on the inside on the payroll so I'll have a bit of early warning JIC

being lean with some decent muscle is much better than being huge with a high bf%

Not if you're fighting for survival in prison

@Kloi Basically even then hahaha, wanna race to see who can get to 100s first? That's my current medium term goal too haha. Gonna take me a while tho I think XD I'm at that point where gains are getting hard to come by.

Yeah I feel that, I remember those days haha. That's one of my favorite things about going to the gym, beating PRs. Always a new challenge to overcome. It's a cool feeling to pick up those 40s and have them feel like 20s now.

Shit, I could maybe push 75s fresh for 7-9 reps.

I just started using the 70s last workout, first time every pushing anything heavier that 65s. I'm dumb excited to get to 100s in a couple of months.

Just because it looks knarly doing those.

One of the things I love about fitness is reflecting on how far I've come. Looking back at 40s think that was hot shit for 5 sets of 12.

@Kloi Right on man, I almost exclusively use dbs for chest. Also around 70 rn. Current max is 75s for 10 if I'm fresh and on a good day. 2nd exercise is cable crossovers, or actually more of a cable press/crossover combo thing, trying to hit the inner chest with those, seems to be working alright, wanna get that midchest line goin stronk and moving the arm across midline seems to cause better activation of those fibers. Some people say close grips are good for that but I tried those and it just doesn't feel like it activates that area as well. Much better contraction if you move your arm all the way across the mid point.

Dumbbells and I'm doing cable rows to chest.

Was benching but once I started getting into the 155 range, again with the wrist issues.

Just switched back to dbs and I'm running 70s for reps with no problem.

@Kloi This is true, and probably why my obliques have grown pretty well despite never being trained directly. What do you usually train with?

Bars have always bothered my wrists, that and I was under the impression dbs being single armed, not having the bar as a connecting point, requires more activation of stablizing muscles.

@Kloi Haha I avoid 5x5s like the plague. Only do em when I get annoyed at a plateau really. My from isn't great though, could be why. Also strongly prefer dbs over bar. Safer to go past failure with, and even if you can't load as much, I think the added range of motion makes it worth the trade. Plus you never need to train forearms because of all the isometrics they get.
