Cheers man.

I recently switched from exclusively dumbbell benching to pretty much exclusively barbell benching, and it seems to have done the trick.

Chest noob gains all over the place!

I take it from your posts in the other thread you are on some J.

Thats quite frankly ridiculous volume regardless of if you are hormonally enhanced or not (absolute suicide if you are not).

Do you literally spend all day lifting?

Train Insaiyan or remain the same.

If you want to look like a *****, train like a *****. If you want to look like a man, go ham.

Using that workout as an example...

With the exception of two 'heavy' bench sets, that workout was all really light weight and really easy on my CNS and joints. Hence being able to get a 'ridiculous' amount of volume in. Look at the reps, it's quite clearly light weight and just a case of getting a nice stretch/contraction/pump, keeping lots of tension on the muscle while being really easy on the CNS and joints.

Even some of the lower rep sets are actually quite light, it's just that the muscles are pre fatigued. For example, if I incline bench first, I can hit 80kg for 15+ and if I shoulder press first I can 80kg for 10+. It's all fairly easy on my CNS and joints. From a recovery/progression point of view, the volume isn't detrimental, it's just a case of being prepared to put the time and effort in. I'm prepared to, lots of others aren't. Obviously if I started trying to hit 1-3 rep maxes, I wouldn't be doing nearly as much volume as that.

My workouts last 1.5-2 hours, depending on rest times/how I'm feeling. Having said that, I could get a great workout in, in 30 minutes. However I have the time to space it out a little, so I do so. I enjoy lifting and being in the gym, I would rather spend an extra 30 minutes getting a few extra sets in than sit around watching TV for an extra 30mins.

Chest/Shoulders/Triceps :drool:

Chest:

Barbell bench press -
100kg X 8,6
60kg X 22, 12, 10

Incline barbell bench press -
60kg X 10,11,8,8,8

The first three sets were messy, the first set especially.. I experimented lifting at a shallower angle, thinking 'less delt, more chest' although it just resulted in a really awkward and uncomfortable un-racking position, due to the pin height. I had to un-rack from pins that were too low, as I couldn't reach the next ones up, which just F'ed everything up. Never again!

Tricep snapcity!

Final two sets were back at my normal angle and things felt much better.


Dumbbell incline bench press -
17.5kg X 20,15, 10, 10, 10

Chest dips -
Bodyweight X 20, 15, 14, 10, 10

Shoulders:

Hammer shoulder press -
40kg/20kg drop-sets X 15/13, 9/9, 7/8

Lateral raise(seated) -
10kg X 15, 10, 8

Lateral raise(standing) -
10kg X 12, 10, 8

Lateral raise(standing) drop-sets/running the rack
12kg/8kg/6kg (didn't count the reps, just repped out running the rack) X 2 rack runs

Triceps:

Close grip bench press -
40kg X 16, 16, 14, 12

Got a spot on the final three sets from the gym owner. Gosh, it's nice to have somebody who can actually spot.. Managed to go to total failure on the final three sets, which was nice!

Pump town!


Skullcrushers -
EZ bar + 20kg X 11+F, 7+F, 6+F, 5+F, 5+ epic F


I deliberately go to failure, just to get an additional stretch at the bottom after my final full rep.

Decided it would be a good idea on the final rep of the final set to do a real slow negative on the deliberate fail, like 5 seconds slow... Never got the bottom to get the stretch though, as my tricep just said 'F you' and completely failed and gave out. I nearly smashed myself in the forehead with the bar as it just kind of fell...

Worth it though.. Dat pump.


Close grip bench press -
20kg(empty barbell) X 30, 17, 17, 16, 16

Cable pushdown -
20kg X 15
