    Crazy all the dang pull-ups. Looks as if you accidentally typed in "Pull up set 7 reps" after every other entry. LOL. Oh, and what's your secret on the Floor presses. 365 x 3 is STROOOONG!

        Glad you liked the advice. Much better numbers this way. And I love mixing up grips...switching up the grips keeps them from getting redundant and boring (to me at least).

          • Strong work in here dude. I love watching you just hammer your numbers day in and day out. I think your militray press is pretty strong man.

            Do you have a goal of getting bigger too or do you want to get stronger at the same weight? It seems like you have stayed about the same size so it seems like you and I are similar in that regard.

            With the deadlifts, I think your form keeps improving, but I would really work on thrusting your hips through powerfully once the bar clears your knees. If you watch, espeically the later reps, your hips are leaning back and moving away from the bar, which means you are pulling back and trying to do it all with your back. Once the bar clears your knees, think about forcefull thrusting forward with your hips (like you're giving it to the bar) and flexing your glutes hard. That should help make the pull a little quicker and get you some more reps and weight on the bar.

            Keep it up homie.

              Hey Bruno!
              How's it going bro?
              Eh, I guess it's ok, it's deff the most humbling exercise there is. :P Thanks though.

              I'd like to be bigger, and stronger. I've actually gained about 6 pounds in the last 6 months, and kept my BF % basically the same.

              You're right about the DLs, i need to take yours and Jays advice, and focus on one thing at a time..I think that for DL is one of the main things I need to focus on.
              Thanks for the advice, keep getting strong!

                Week 3 Wave 2

                130x6
                120x6

                Notes: Fairly pissed off that I only got 5, almost had 6, but couldn't get it up! My goal was 7, but, I got more than I was originally spoce to get(1). Last month I got 6 I think, but now it's 10 pounds heaiver.

                I gota find a gym to go to tomorrow, b/c mines closed. and I have a feeling I'm going to forget, and be at my gyms door steps before I remember.

                Almost got into it /w some ass hole at the gym today.
                He was doing chest cross overs, on the ball thing. And I asked them if they'd please not stand in front of the mirror so I can see how far down I go, you're fine on the ball, just dont stand in front of it.
                And the idiot goes, I dont know who he thinks he is.

                So, I replied with, Really, you can't do this one thing. Not stand in front of me, you're find there, just not in front of me.
                Then he got pissed off I guess and done his set..I mean really, was that something to get bent out of shape over, I'm not asking the guy to leave the gym.

                • Nice squats dude! Your form looks really good on those. I thought you were going to get that last one. So close!

                  You'll get it next time.

                  • You didn't sound rude but sometimes there's nothing more you can expect out of someone than a "how dare you" attitude. At least you were the "better man".

                    On another note, I love to see people working out on stabilizer balls and balance boards, my wife used to tease me about 'how hard it is' and that I was 'afraid to try it'. It makes me smile. Today is the Ab's area of the gym one particular male indevidual was on his back doing bicycles with his legs, though, both in unison mind you. I thought to myself 'that has got to be the least Manly way to build abs I've ever seen', not to mention just as unproductive.:hurt:

                      I did the back arch thing, Jay was talking about. Felt a ton better..kinda weird trying to get the bar in the right place, though.
                      Ya I was really close, I couldn't believe it when I started going down, haha.

                      Tell that guy to squat!! lol That'd work his abs, big time.

                      • Really nice form on those squats. Definitely looked more stable than in the last video.

                        Good luck on finding a new gym. I have lost my tolerance for almost all commercial gyms these days...when I'm older if I have the money I will definitely build a home gym.

                              Notes: Hit a big PR on bench today, and kroc rows. Had a really good workout.
                              My legs are barely sore, from squat day.

                              The cardio machine was weird as hell, so I had to quit early b/c I felt like it was taxing my legs, way to much.
                              the new gym was pretty nice, I might end up joining, because it has a student discount of 120 for 4 months, so about 30 a month..might be worth it when I go to my new school. They actually have some round plates!!!
