    Ah right aye I'm in Newcastle and sometimes use that gym because my mate can get me in for free. I'd just do what works best for you though, my routine would probably be frowned upon by weightlifting noobs aswell.

    If I was you i'd definitely do some chest flys though, i used to neglect them but I think there the main reason my chest is improving so much recently.

    oh aye man, flys are great . Forgot to add them in. It definitely helps.

    lols

    6 months and your benching 50kg for reps and you can't understand why your routine looks ****?

    ANYWAYS....i'm out

    God you blind *******. I already said i had 2 big injuries from ops. There is such a thing as actually getting through the injuries to be able to lift again no? Unless you're ******* wolverine i'd like to see you try. Anyway, in teh grand scheme of things, no one gives a ****.

    And i did say my chest is my weakest part by far.

    Monday: Push A.

    Bench press. 3 x 4-8
    DB shoulder press 3 x 4-8
    Close grip bench press 3 x 4-8
    Squats 3 x 4-8
    Calf press 3x 4-8
    Not to be overly critical, but why do you have three tricep dependant excercises in sequence? I understand that the concept of pre-exhaustion and i know that its your push day, but perhaps greater progress could be made were you to separate these with your leg work;

    Bench Press
    Squats
    DB Press
    Calf Press
    Close Grip BP

    that's what I do

    bench
    squat
    dips
    calf raises
    incline bench

    I always think i'm doing it wrong by having the gap because I see so many people that will do flat bench..then incline and then usually decline bench all on the smith machine-(the fact it's on the smith machine keeps my faith)....my arms,shoulders and chest are usually gassed out after flat bench.

    Not trained in ages because I'm too lazy now but... I think you could do more than 50. I could do that when I was like 13 lol.

    I only skimmed the thread but I recall someone mentioned microloading, good place to start.

    Luck.

    lol, yeah, rich, starting e-arguments. You're not ******* special no matter what your mother tells you.


    I said i was looking for a gradual rate of progress, unless you're a blind **** i think i did already mention that in my thread.

    And tbh, i was lifting 80kg before when you were still a fat ******. Suck on that taco.
    Erm, 80kg really isn´t a lot.

    It's nothing to do with ___kg lifted; it's the attitude of, "i was lifting 80kg before when you were still a fat ******. Suck on that taco" and similar bullsh** to that. Nobody likes that sh** around here.
